ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for the awareness in employees in Great Britain of the importance of savings for the retirement. It states that employees in the country will have only a defined contribution pension scheme in future and the average income from this scheme is 24% in comparison with that from the final salary scheme which was 66%. It discusses the need for a change in the mindset of people, and the role of organisations in educating employees regarding the retirement savings.
