Could Training be the key to your firm’s success?

What with the signs of current political uncertainty, Brexit and the Reforms looming ahead, the RTA/PI Industry remains fragile. It is understandable that with these difficulties and the future of some legal firms remaining unstable, budgets become tighter and corners are cut.

Even though cutting on your staffs’ training might seem convenient, it is not necessarily wise. Your firm’s success lies on the hands of your staff and ensuring that you have a substantial budget for legal training, or deciding to boost your current budget to invest on training will not result on loss but on further profit instead.  The reason being that legal training is the key to your firm’s success, progress and prosperity during this challenging period.

Invest on your team

What most companies tend to forget nowadays, especially during phases of financial instability, is that their success comes from their people. Employees whose companies do not provide them with frequent opportunities to progress, do not remain long with these companies. If you wish to retain your current staff and avoid unnecessary recruitment costs, you have to help them develop their capabilities and help them excel at what they do. 

Develop your team

Legal training can help your employees stretch to their full potential. It is imperative that your teams’ strengths and weaknesses are identified both on an individual level and as a whole. Your team as a whole could tackle all its weak points with a bespoke in-house training course. Your individual solicitors’ weaknesses could be taken care of by online training; webinars usually focus on one specific topic which is beneficial to those who lack knowledge on a certain issue. It is also significant that you learn to listen to your staff’s interests, what they wish to learn more of and potentially specialise in. This practice will not only make them feel valuable members of your team; it will also bring forth personal satisfaction and a sense of achievement.

Get the best out of your team

Employing solicitors and paralegals that are properly equipped to handle a variety of claims due to consistent training is only one of the many benefits you will get from your team’s development. Training can boost your staff’s confidence, drive and self-esteem. The development of their skills through legal training will allow them to feel part of your organisation. Full or half day in-house training courses are a great relationship building tool for your team. They will get to know each other better and most importantly they will learn how to work better with each other.  A day of training takes them out of their day-to-day routine, helps them re-charge and return to work with renewed enthusiasm.  

What it all comes down to

Investing on a yearly training plan is certainly beneficial to your firm, especially during hard times.  Success can only come through the constant development of your team; this will help you build up your reputation and get ahead of your competitors. Employing legal staff that is continuously trained is vital if you wish to avoid significant mistakes which can cost your firm money and potentially ruin your hard-earned reputation.

    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

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
