The words economy and recovery have very rarely been put together, or even put in the same sentence at all, in the last five or so years. We haven’t really witnessed many positive financial times in the UK in recent times, and in fact they’ve been pretty terrible for almost everyone. Our days of easy credit are over and have well and truly caught up on us all, meaning the consequential years have been a tough pay-back.

Now the banks have tightened up their purse strings and aren’t as friendly with their cash as they used to be, but despite their prudence the economy is beginning to ride the wave back to the shores of recovery. Yes, believe it or not, we are finally starting to sort our financial crisis out. So with a satisfying farewell to the double-dip and a triple-dip neatly sidestepped, what should our businesses concentrate on now?

Marketing Budget

With the economy in slow but steady recovery, your business may start to find itself with a bit more spare cash to play with. This may not be the case for everyone, but if it does apply to you, this opportunity may give you license to spread your name about a bit more. Investing in your marketing or advertising campaigns is always a positive decision, if only to increase the awareness of your brand.

Alternatively, you may perhaps want to spend a little cash on research of your target audience or industry niche. Either way, accurate marketing campaigns usually lead to an increase in customers; so this is your typical case of speculate to accumulate.

Possible Recruitment Drive

If you have the money to cover it and require some extra hands on deck, now may be the right time to increase the size of your company and add a few staff members to areas in need. Perhaps your next marketing drive requires a new employee or maybe your HR department could use some extra help. Either way, hiring new staff members can help your business grow in both size and profit margins, enabling you to reach your goals and business ambitions much quicker.

Existing Staff Training

But if you’re not quite ready to take on new staff and your advertising campaign is ticking along nicely, it might be worthwhile to send your existing staff on some training programs. There are many external training providers out there with professional and skilled practitioners ready to assist with your training modules.

Introducing staff training allows you to instill some new skills and processes into your existing staff members without the costs of hiring new employees. As the UK economy picks itself up over the next 5-10 years, now is the perfect time to invest in staff training, just as the recovery wave is beginning to pick up speed.

Outsourcing your training can save time and take pressure from your management and/or HR team – meaning you can relax in the knowledge that your staff are being trained professionally and thoroughly. Training should never be regarded as an ‘expense’ but as an investment in the future for both your business and your staff.

To save time and pressure on your management/HR team – you can outsource your training to a professional external training company.

    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
