Ben Bechelli

Project Manager

In 2012, Ben acted as Project Manager on the Automatic Enrolment (AE) Standards Development Project. The project delivered a suite of 11 Open AE Data Messaging Standards to support the various AE processes such as AE Postponement and Estimation, AE Assessment, AE Opt In/Opt Out/Joiners to name a few. The challenge with this project was not just in developing and delivering the AE Standards in time to support the broad band of medium and small employers staging AE for the first time post 2013, but in managing and co-ordinating input from the wide variety of Stakeholders involved such as Pension Product Providers, Flexible Benefit Providers, HR Payroll Solution Providers, Employee Benefit Consultants/Advisers, CRM Solution Providers, Government Regulatory Bodies and NEST. This was without doubt one of the biggest projects undertaken in recent years and is proud to have worked on this project and to deliver AE Standards on behalf of the Industry.
