When did it take place?

For Compass Group employees auto-enrolment legislation applied from
1 November 2012. Compass decided to utilise a permitted waiting period of up to 3 months and so auto-enrolment came into place from 2 January 2013.

This was to allow adequate time to get our systems up and running for this major change in the pensions industry and communicate to our employees whilst also avoiding any impact to them before the Christmas period
