“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.”
“These days, Boards need real expertise on tap (with excellent back-up) to cope with a constantly evolving and more regulated environment. HR Trustees is geared to delivering that.”
“PSIT offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“Where HR Trustees are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees. ”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSIT scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSIT shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
