HOW CAN LEGAL TRAINING REDUCE YOUR UK RECRUITMENT COSTS?

UK Legal Training Provider MASS Provides Some Answers

Every business becomes frustrated with the amount of time, resources and money that they have to put into recruitment costs. In the legal sector this can be even more frustrating due to the high starting salaries and high percentage fees charged by recruitment companies. With fees starting in the region of 20%, even for a junior solicitor a recruitment fee of £6,000 is not unusual, and often during boom times the percentage can increase towards 50% as the recruitment companies ‘cash in’ while they can.

However investing in your team through effective legal training can substantially reduce your recruitment costs. There are several major reasons for this:

Let’s look at each of these items in turn to see how they help to improve employee loyalty.

Committing To Invest

Every member of staff likes to feel that they are valued. If you pick up any management book one of the recurring themes will always be the need to “Praise Your Team”. Whilst praise is an essential part of your management skills it does not cost anything except time. When you agree to fund a course for your team members you have to invest financially as well as with your time. This extra commitment, if explained correctly to your staff, shows that you really do value their contribution to the team.

Improving Skills

If you choose the right legal training provider your staff will receive training that immediately makes them better at their job. This leads to improved satisfaction for your team member. A happier team member is less likely to leave their job.

Motivated Staff Through A Training Plan

If you take the time to put in place a long term training plan with each team member you are showing a commitment to them for years to come. This commitment to train them over the course of the next few years shows a real desire on your part for them to be an integral part of your business. How will you be rewarded for this commitment? With a more motivated and committee team member who is much more likely to stay with your firm.

More Satisfied Clients

If your staff are more confident in their abilities and better trained they will be able to complete their cases as quickly as possible. Less mistakes will be made and a much better service will be received by your clients. In an increasingly competitive market, having satisfied clients spreading the word about your excellent service is a huge benefit to your law firm.

Better Teams

If your teams each receive training in different areas or aspects of law they will become experts in that area. If each of your team members has a different expertise they will become an excellent resource for each other, improving your team’s efficiency as a whole.

Summary

If you invest in your team correctly, the cost of any training will be returned many times over through improved efficiency, improved client satisfaction and most importantly in reduced recruitment costs.

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
