LGPS National Confidence Assessment Report
23 Oct 2018 - Estimated reading time: 15 minutes
Earlier this year, we launched the first ever national confidence assessment for every committee and pension board member in the LGPS. Participants were asked to rank how confident they felt on 8 key areas of knowledge and understanding. The survey concluded in August with participation from 54 LGPS Funds and over 250 responses.
With confidence being a fundamental basis from which leadership grows, assessing committee and pension board members’ confidence has given us a unique insight into the strength of leadership across the LGPS on a national scale.
In this report, we set out:
Why confidence is a valuable measure of how well committees and pension boards operate
The overall confidence levels of respondents and our analysis of these results
What the results indicate and what it may mean for your fund
What committee and pension boards had to say about the exercise
The importance of committee and pension board member training
