"Two-thirds of Canadians would switch jobs for a group savings plan."

Group Retirement Savings

The headline above says it all. Good people look for good employers.  We know that money is the leading stressor for 42% of Canadians, far above health, relationships, and work itself.

A good retirement plan is an integral part of a total compensation package for forward-thinking, people-focused organizations. It is invaluable in helping to retain, reward, and attract the best employees.

But retirement plans have changed – you aren’t limited to your Daddy’s DB Pension anymore! Along with variety comes a whole world of learning about the products your employees could benefit from the most – it’s not one size fits all.

You’re going to need some help with this . . . See what ENCOMPASS can do for you!

Do your fiduciary responsibilities keep you up at night? Did we lose you at fiduciary? You might think it’s boring, but we love plan governance!

You need a partner that can help you negotiate the complex landscape of group retirement plans—an expert that can help you understand your responsibilities and governance obligations as they affect your organization.
