This guide will walk you through enrolling workers to NEST.
Once your employees have been automatically enrolled into the pension scheme, you must inform NEST of their membership to the scheme. You can produce a summary of which employees have been automatically enrolled by running the Pay Period Activity report, which can be found under Auto Enrolment > Reports > Pay Period Activity.
