What is GRiD?
Founded in 1998, Group Risk Development (GRiD) is the industry body for the group risk protection sector, promoting the value to British businesses of providing financial protection for their staff, enhancing their well-being and awareness.
What does GRiD do?
GRiD aims to promote group risk through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers. GRiD’s media activity aims to generate a greater understanding of group risk products and their benefits for both employers and employees.
They work with government departments and regulators involved in legislation and regulation affecting group risk benefits and with other organisations involved in the benefits and financial protection arenas.
GRiD seeks to enhance the industry's standing by encouraging best practice and by participating in industry wide initiatives such as the professional qualification in group risk managed jointly with the Chartered Insurance Institute.
