In today’s high-pressure work environment, the emphasis is often placed more on personal achievement than on teamwork. As a result, workers can begin to feel alienated and detached from their work colleagues, no matter how closely they work together. In-house training can go a long way to rectifying that situation, by giving everyone a chance to work together towards a common goal.

While many firms go for the ‘team building exercise’ route full of ‘trust games’ and motivational speeches, another approach is to use high quality in-house legal training to give workers a sense of achievement that will pay dividends in their everyday working lives. Motivational training and team building exercises have their place, but in a working environment a training course that has a positive and practical end result such as an additional qualification or the development of a wider skills set has much greater value to your team.

Making work more rewarding

The quickest way to demotivate a team is to fall into a set routine that doesn’t change from day to day. The working day can become mundane and even boring, with little to challenge staff or make them feel that they are contributing something worthwhile to the organisation. By including a tailor-made programme of in-house legal training, you can push your team to achieve new heights in their careers, and subsequently provide a better service to your clients too.

By making the working environment more rewarding (and not just financially but intellectually as well), team members are encouraged to contribute more and feel as if they are a valued member of the organisation. But that training has to be carefully planned if it isn’t to be a waste of both time and money.

Bridging the age gap

One of the biggest issues in any organisation can be the perceived age gap between work colleagues. While older workers may have the benefit of experience, younger colleagues can often have more drive and ambition to succeed and further their careers through continuous personal development. Rather than reinforcing this difference, in-house training can bridge the age gap by bringing the entire team together to work as a collective rather than as individuals. The result is that older workers can be motivated to look at fresh, new areas of work while younger colleagues can benefit from the experience of their more knowledgeable counterparts. The outcome for the organisation is a team that has a shared skills set regardless of age, experience or their position within the company, and once again this means the delivery of a better quality of service for your clients.

In-house training is an excellent morale booster for any organisation looking to stay at the forefront of their field. By choosing the right training organisation to deliver quality legal training, you can encourage all of your team members to give 100% all day every day, and avoid that ‘just a job’ black hole that can suck the life out of any team. In-house training will give your team the confidence they need to deliver a superior service to all your clients, as well as working together as a collective rather than as a room full of individuals. And there’s not a motivational speaker, rafting weekend or ‘trust’ game in sight!

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.
