As an employer, it may be that taking the time and the money to offer your employees further legal training seems like an unnecessary drain on valuable resources. However, an investment of this sort can not only save you long-term expense in what is, undoubtedly, a difficult economic climate, but it can also increase your profits.

Recruitment Costs

Recruitment costs can create a barrier between employers and the staff they want to employ. Currently, it is not unusual to expect to pay around £6,000 just in recruitment costs to acquire a junior solicitor. In times of economic boom, this fee can increase to around £15,000. However, it is important to consider just why you need to recruit, especially at a time when time and money are possibly the two most important factors in your business. Generally, the best reason to recruit is for expansion. However, currently the most prominent reason is due to vacancies. Giving your existing staff additional personal injury training can not only help you to retrain and retain valuable staff, but it can also increase their productivity and knowledge. This in turn increases your client base and the number of cases your firm can take on.

Employee loyalty is vital to reducing the cost of recruitment. The fewer staff that move on, the less you will have to spend on recruitment. Investing in further personal injury training tells your staff that they are valued company assets. It suggests to them that their worth is such that you are prepared to invest in them and see that their careers fulfill their potential life spans. In addition, additional legal training will give your staff new skills and knowledge with which to increase their rate of success. A team that is happy and secure in its skills set is far less likely to leave than employees who are left to fend for themselves or seek out personal injury training independently.

Customer Satisfaction

In addition to creating a team that feels valued, you will also be instrumental in increasing your clients’ satisfaction. The current economic climate also has a profound effect on those looking to hire personal injury lawyers; they want to know that they are spending their money wisely. Firms with a low staff turnover and high success rate are immediately more attractive than those with constantly changing staff and average rates of success. Investing in additional legal training not only lets potential clients know that your firm is committed to understanding each avenue of the Law, but also improves the service that you give them. Word of mouth is still the most tried and trusted method of garnering new clients, so the more satisfaction you can give existing ones, the more new ones you are likely to attain.

In addition, a team with a refreshed set of skills and a new appreciation of the Law will act as a resource for itself. Team members will come to depend on each other more and build professional bonds that are likely to last, reducing their desires to ‘jump ship’.

In the short term, additional personal injury training may appear expensive. But in the long-term it is something you simply cannot afford not to invest in.

    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.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration
