The Smart Pension has enhanced employee wellbeing as it has meant they are saving more money for the future. With the economy the way it is at the moment trying to save for the future has been put on the backburner for many employees but the Smart Pension means that employees save that little more each year and this makes their money go further.
The Toolbank News Letter which is sent out every 3-4 months in the year has worked really well as employees are constantly informing them of any fund raising they have been doing, welcoming new staff, congratulating colleagues on their nuptials or new arrivals. The news letter has allowed employees to get involved and the feedback from employees has been that the news letter has been very well received as it is great to know what is going on in the other branches.
