There are lots of reasons we think you should come along to PBUK this year, but here's our top 5:


1) Prepare to operate in a new world

It is no longer business as usual in today's increasingly globalised world. The emergence of disruptive business models, technological advances, demographic shifts, economic turbulence and significant geopolitical change have highlighted the need for the industry to adapt and evolve in order to manage such change. This year's agenda will place these issues at the forefront and provide guidance on how you can stay informed and adapt.

2) Wellbeing takes pride of place for a second year

Employees are organisations' most important asset and as employers continue their commitment to improving employee health and wellbeing, PBUK will see the return of our holistic wellbeing stream which will cover physical, emotional, mental and financial employee wellbeing. Including practical examples on how your firm can create a healthy, supportive and productive workplace.

3) Investment is an uphill battle - why face it alone?

Investment forms a core part of this year's agenda as institutional investors face unprecedented challenges, change and uncertainty. Our expert speakers will come together to discuss how investors can navigate the current economic and political climate, discussing how to select the right asset classes and investment strategies for your scheme.

4) Watch this space: Pensions reform

Both DB and DC pensions are set for great policy change and reform. Whilst we continue the move from DB to DC both systems and their future are very much a priority for the government and assisting regulators, with key reports set for publication in early 2017, as well as the pensions bill, there is much to keep abreast of. Stay informed and hear key analysis on how the market expects policy to evolve over 2017 and in the future.

5) Benefits & Communications : Unlimited options with limited funds

The workplace has seen major change over recent years with the death of the job for life, the retraction of 9-5, increased employee mobility and more diverse demographics in the workplace thus many employers must reassess their benefits packages and communication strategies to fit the new workplace. Whilst the benefits options and communication methods are endless, the funds to support them are not, thus PBUK aims to help employers make sense of the infinite options available and ensure they choose the right one for their workforce and their business.
