Broadstone: specialist pensions, trustee and employee benefits adviser, has joined GRiD, the industry body for group risk, to keep up to date with industry developments as the company grows. The training provided by GRiD is a particular pull, along with the platform GRiD has that gives members the opportunity to have influence within the wider industry.
Paul McGuckin, director, head of employee benefits at Broadstone, said: ‘I became conscious that, as we grew, we had less time to keep up to date with industry developments and that our training and development needs had become, if anything, more demanding.
‘The pandemic has changed how we interact with both our clients and our industry providers, it has highlighted the importance of both sustainable talent development and of having the ability to influence a sector in which we are a significant player. GRiD membership provides us with a recognized, and credible, platform from which we can address these equally important challenges more fully.’
Among other benefits, GRiD membership provides opportunities for training, networking, and access to consultation responses, industry leaders, claims data and research.
Paul White, chair of GRiD said: ‘Our reach, both within the industry and beyond, adds real value to our members, and ultimately supports our clients. And the wider the breadth of our membership, the better we’re able to do this. We offer a very warm welcome to Broadstone and look forward to working together.’
