Update pension contribution percentages for employees

Use case 

Employees automatically enrolled on the company's pension will be put on the company's standard contributions split (or the statutory amount, i.e 5% employee / 3% employer). UK law disposes that minimum 8% of an employee's salary should be contributed towards their pension pot, but this amount can be increased by both the employer or the employee. 

You can update both the company's standard contribution percentage as well as an employee if they've requested this. Employees can  update their own contribution directly in their profile.
