The ninth annual survey of employee attitudes to pay is based on a survey of 1,658 working adults, across all industrial sectors. The survey was carried out between 12 December and 21 December 2016 and is representative of the UK workforce in relation to sector, size and industry type. The findings are primarily analysed by sector, organisational size, managerial position and pay. On behalf of the CIPD, YouGov undertook this research among UK employees and builds on the data collected previously.
Survey findings reveal that there’s a lack of awareness among workers regarding the new state pension that was introduced last year, in terms of what they’ll get and when they’ll get it. The survey shows that the age at which staff can get a state pension is an important factor in their decision-making about when to stop work.
