Who are WPD?
Workplace Pensions Direct (WPD) was founded in 2013 to simplify auto enrolment for small to medium businesses as a result of the Government initiative to help more people save for later life through a pension scheme at work.
In 2018 we introduced WPD Payroll, a fully managed and outsourced payroll solution.
