Providing a pension scheme without additional support and financial education is "becoming insufficient", Scottish Widows warns.
The provider's Workplace Pensions Report found 41% of large business employees would like to receive help on how to budget for their old age - with 23% saying employers should pay for full independent financial advice.
Scottish Widows corporate pensions senior manager Lynn Graves said: "Our research is showing that providing a workplace pension alone is becoming insufficient and employees are increasingly looking to employers to provide additional support and financial education to ensure that their staff are not only aware of the mechanics of auto-enrolment, but also making the most of workplace saving to secure a more comfortable retirement."
However those working for smaller businesses thought individuals should increase their own contributions or be reminded to do so by their employer.
Only 27% thought it was up to employers to provide budgeting advice.
The research is based on a survey carried out online by YouGov, which interviewed a total of 5,191 adults between the 31 March and 8 April 2015.
A number of those in the industry have called on the sector to do more to help workers plan for their retirement.
More than half of BlackRock’s flagship UK defined contribution (DC) default fund’s assets will be invested in ESG strategies by June 2021.
Graeme Bold says the right communications can improve both the level of savings and the outcomes for savers.
More than half of UK savers agree they are unable to save sufficiently to achieve the retirement they want, according to research by BlackRock.
Pension savers have held off from making changes to their pensions despite nearly half having been impacted by the pandemic, research finds.
