Advocacy & Research » Surveys
Workplace Savings NZ has historically conducted extensive surveys of stand-alone workplace super schemes (corporate and industry schemes) to ascertain industry benchmarks in areas such as member eligibility and benefit design, and best practice in areas of investment choice and scheme governance. In 2003 we undertook a broadly similar survey of the Master Trust products available to New Zealand employers. Members can view the results of these past surveys by clicking on the Survey Results heading in the left-hand menu on this page.
While the introduction of KiwiSaver has imposed a one size fits all approach for many employers, for those desiring an approach that reaches beyond KiwiSaver, the Workplace Savings NZ surveys offers a unique insight to what is happening within stand-alone schemes that continue to be provided by a selection of New Zealand employers.
In 2008 we once again conducted a survey of stand-alone schemes. In particular the 2008 survey researched how employers with existing workplace savings arrangements coped with the introduction of KiwiSaver. The 2008 survey also covered the usual areas of member choice, benefit design, investment choice and governance.
Workplace Savings NZ conducted mini Surveys specific to key aspects of stand-alone schemes during 2010.
Currently we manage a quarterly survey of KiwiSaver Schemes to report growth in member numbers and the value of each scheme's assets under management. Members can view these KiwiSaver surveys by clicking on the Survey Results heading in the left-hand menu on this page.
