Employers can nominate a particular KiwiSaver provider that their employees (who haven't already chosen a KiwiSaver provider) will become members of. This is a Preferred Provider.
Why pick a Preferred Provider?
To avoid your employees falling into a government default scheme that might not deliver the best outcomes for their specific goals or align with their personal values.
Having a preferred provider shows you care about the well-being of your new employees, rather than leaving them to choose a provider on their own.
Picking one that aligns with your company values demonstrates your integrity as a business.
Your KiwiSaver contributions, plus actively choosing a preferred provider you’re proud of, forms part of an appealing employee value proposition.
Consider contributing more than the standard 3% to really excite new candidates.
And...when you pick Pathfinder, your staff will have access to ongoing free financial education and advice.
