Inhouse training is a fantastic option for organisations who would like to train a number of their employees at once... Since we come to your premises it helps save time and money, while also allowing for any customisations that suit your individual needs!

So, what's the big hype with inhouse training? Why would you pay for an external training programme if you could just have one of your managers do the training with the team?

Both very good questions, so let's unpack...

We'll start with the hype.

Inhouse training is a great way to get your whole team on the same page, not to mention that the training can be customised to fit your desired outcomes and goals. At Staff Training we are honoured to have amazing clients on board who we see quite regularly for their inhouse training, we love being a part of the journey seeing these companies go from strength to strength.

And as to why an external training programme is important...

An 'external facilitator' can help bring fresh perspectives and new questions to the discussion. The key to successful training sessions also lies in neutral or unbiased facilitation...

According to an article by, external facilitators yield the ability to spot important insights and redirect focus to ensure that important, yet tangential issues, get explored. Therefore, external facilitators may bring a fresh perspective and new questions. They should be willing to ask difficult questions and confront commonly held assumptions. The article further states that because external facilitators come from a broad range of industries, they are better skilled at challenging groupthink.

Now, let's look at the top 3 reasons why you should invest in training your staff:

1. They will gain knowledge and practical tools with which to improve their skills and performance
2. There is a direct correlation between training your workforce and retaining them (according to, 70% of employees would be somewhat likely to leave their current job to work for an organization known for investing in employee development and learning; and according to a LinkedIn Workplace Learning Report, 94% of employees say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their learning and development)
3. It shows employees they are valued
