A good mix of articles this week looking at Auto Enrolment from a number of different perspectives.  Interestingly, there is a strong theme suggesting the main underlying problem is still the lack of understanding and education around the whole process.  This is true of both Advisers and employers.  The majority seem to still be underestimating the scale of what is involved, not just to become compliant but to manage the process on an ongoing basis.
