A busy work schedule can mean that immediate priorities sometimes override your business ambitions. But if you want to ensure that clients keep coming to you and not your competitors, you have to take in-house training seriously and include it in your overall business strategy. Without constantly updating your team’s skills and pushing your business forward, your business could quite easily stagnate.

Legislative changes, new laws and changes in the way the Law is practised means that continuous training is essential. Apart from the fact that some business fields require you to take a set amount of training every year to meet your Continuous Personal Development quota, training can also keep you and your team up to date with current best practice and introduce new ways of tackling old problems. While your team may be perfectly capable of meeting the requirements of your clients right now, how will they fare in a year or even six month’s time when the legal ‘goalposts’ have shifted?

Boosting your reputation

As well as staying up to date with best practice, you also have to consider your business’s reputation amongst your clients. Do they want to go to a firm that is using outdated methods, or will they feel more confident talking to a company that shows a proactive approach in adopting new best practice techniques as they emerge? The answer is obvious, but if business is ‘ticking along nicely’, it can often be tempting to sit back, save a bit of money and not bother with additional training.

That’s why your business needs in-house training. Not only does it deliver key aspects of best practice techniques and introduce your team to new approaches, but it also improves your reputation amongst your clients as well. And in-house training delivers this with one additional bonus – it’s more cost effective than external training.


Boosting efficiency

In-house training means that your team isn’t out of reach during their training programme. It means that if emails need to be answered or a query needs to be addressed, the relevant member of staff is still on site to answer those emails and queries. It also means that you don’t have to pay out for additional expenses such as accommodation and travel expenses. During a time of financial belt-tightening even for big firms, this is a real incentive to look seriously at in-house compared to external training courses. Time really is money these days, and the less time your team has to spend away from their desks at external training centres, the better it is for your business and your finances.

In-house training can also be tailor-made to meet your firm’s specific requirements. Whereas an external training course doesn’t take into account the individual nuances of your particular business, an in-house training course will be relevant, targeted and addresses your needs.


Boosting your team

In-house training also has the added benefit of working as an effective team-building exercise. It can strengthen working relationships between colleagues by ensuring that everyone is ‘singing off the same songsheet’. This sharing of knowledge also means that if one member of staff is away for any length of time (for example, on annual leave), there isn’t suddenly a gap in your skills base for two weeks as the entire team has the same information and knowledge as their absent colleague.

In-house training offers a cost-effective way to stay on top of best practice techniques, enhance your reputation with your clients and work as an effective team building exercise. All of this will boost your business and move it to the next level, preventing your firm from stagnating. So instead of asking if you really need it, shouldn’t you be asking yourself ‘how soon can I schedule the next in-house training session’?

    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.
