In-house training can be a cost-effective solution compared to sending individual executive assistants to external training programs.
By conducting the ACEA® program in-house, you eliminate or significantly reduce expenses such as registration fees, travel costs, accommodation, and per diems associated with external training.
Instead, you only need to allocate resources for the program materials and any internal facilitators.
Economy of Scale
Training multiple executive assistants simultaneously allows for economies of scale. The cost per participant typically decreases when training is conducted in groups.
This is because the fixed costs associated with program delivery, such as instructor fees or program development costs, can be distributed across multiple participants.
As a result, the per-person training cost decreases, leading to overall cost savings for the organization.
Customization and Relevance
Whilst the ACEA® program has to follow a pre-defined curriculum to comply with the certification and accreditation standards it is alwys possible to tailor parts of teh course content to the specific needs and goals of your organization.
You can customize some the content and delivery to align with your executive assistants' job roles, responsibilities, and organizational objectives.
This customization is normally focussed on the team exercises components and ensures that the training is directly applicable to their day-to-day work, maximizing its impact and return on investment.
Program Duration Flexibility
When conducting the ACEA® program in-house, you have greater flexibility in determining the program's duration.
External training programs typically follow a set schedule and timeline, which may not be ideal for your organization's needs.
By conducting the training internally, you can spread it out over a longer period, allowing participants to balance their training commitments with their regular workload more effectively.
This flexibility minimizes disruptions and potential productivity losses that might occur with external training.
Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration
In-house training allows for enhanced knowledge sharing and collaboration among the executive assistants being trained. They can learn together, exchange insights, and discuss real-life scenarios relevant to your organization.
This collaborative learning environment fosters teamwork, encourages the sharing of best practices, and builds a cohesive support network among the executive assistants.
These synergies can lead to improved efficiency and effectiveness in their roles, ultimately benefiting the organization.
