“Very professional and engaged service.”
“Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. HR Trustees has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.”
“When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.”
“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. ”
“They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.”
“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
