Press release 13 January 2020.
Square Health, provider of medical support services, has become the first new GRiD member of the decade.
As supportive embedded services become increasingly popular and integral to group risk products, the move is designed to help Square Health work more closely with the industry.
Steve Casey, marketing director of Square Health said, ‘It’s important that we’re part of the debate on how added-value services are shaped, positioned and offered, and GRiD provides us with that platform. GRiD’s first-class reputation in promoting group risk to employers, the industry and Government is a key reason for us joining and we’re looking forward to working together.’
Members of GRiD benefit from access to consultation responses, networking events, pan-industry research, training and more.
Steve Bridger, chairman of GRiD said, ‘The bigger we are, the stronger we are, and we very much welcome the voices of all those working in our industry. We offer a warm welcome to Square Health and look forward to getting to know them better at our first members’ event* at the end of January.’

Group Risk Development (GRiD) is the industry body for the group risk protection sector, promoting the value to UK businesses of providing financial protection for their staff, enhancing their wellbeing and improving employee engagement. Our membership includes insurers, reinsurers and intermediaries who have a collective wealth of experience built over years of operating in the group risk protection market. Under the chairmanship of Steve Bridger (MD Group Protection, Corporate, Aviva UK Insurance) GRiD aims to promote group risk through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers.
GRiD works 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 also 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.
