Employers from a wide variety of sectors including retailers, charities and utility companies have PQM. The smallest scheme has 12 active members, and the largest over 200,000.
Schemes must meet PQM standards of good governance and good communications to be awarded. Additionally pension schemes must have good contribution levels - 10% or 12% with at least 6% from the employer for PQM, and 15% with at least 10% from employer for PQM Plus. PQM Ready is an accreditation for master trusts.

The IoD welcomes the PQM initiative. Employers and employees need to work together on tackling the retirement income challenges we all face, and on improving communication of scheme benefits. The focus of PQM in both these areas marks an important step forward in preserving and enhancing good quality workplace pension provision.
