how in-house business English training with the InCorporate Trainer meets these needs
managing size and scope

You define your priorities and expectations, and then we adapt our approach to help you meet your business needs.
Ensuring training is relevant
DO YOU NEED YOUR BUSINESS ENGLISH TRAINING TO BE RELEVANT AND EASILY TRANSFERABLE TO THE WORKPLACE?
Our clients all share this expectation as it is important for them to transfer the learning they receive to their workplace. Being in-house means we can consistently deliver relevant training that is engaging, motivating, and reflects your day-to-day reality.
ARE YOU ABLE TO FOCUS TRAINING ON YOUR REAL NEEDS AND BRING INTERNAL AND CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS INTO THE TRAINING?
Confidentiality is a basic expectation of all our clients. We sign your non-disclosure agreement and win your trust and confidence by integrating into your workplace. This allows us to help you improve the quality of your internal documents.
Working around staff and their busy schedules
HOW ARE YOU ENSURING THE RIGHT PEOPLE, WHO ARE OFTEN THE BUSIEST PEOPLE, ARE RECEIVING THE TRAINING THEY NEED WHEN THEY NEED IT?
All of our clients are challenged by days that are full of meetings, emails, and other tasks. We work with that busy schedule by being flexible and using those appointments as training opportunities. Our trainers provide multiple training opportunities and, if we can’t get you into a training room, we come to you to deliver training on-the-job, helping you address your business issues.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FLEXIBLE SOLUTION THAT FITS AROUND BUSY AND CHANGING SCHEDULES?
Our clients don’t want to waste money on cancellations. By being in-house, we have greater flexibility to easily reschedule training. Can’t make the training session at 9am? No problem, let’s reschedule to the next day and we’ll use the free time slot that is now free to support somebody else on-the-job.
ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS OF YOUR STAFF CHANGING?
Priorities and expectations are constantly evolving and our clients want to make sure that our training keeps up with these changes. Through regular review meetings, we can adapt and tailor both the overall training program and the actual content to reflect your changing needs.
DO YOU NEED TO CAREFULLY MANAGE TRAINING COSTS?
All of our clients are cost conscious and not just regarding supplier fees but the total training cost too. We address both aspects with a transparent and extremely competitive rate. Plus, we help you to keep total training costs down by reducing “dead money” wasted on cancellations and no shows. We make training more effective through relevance, plus we support day to day business through on-the-job training and support. We can also take over time-consuming administration.
HOW ARE YOU MANAGING THE BALANCE BETWEEN QUALITY AND COSTS?
We share the idea with our clients that quality does not have to be traded off against costs. We work closely together with our clients to achieve this. By transforming in-house English training into a strategic decision, we achieve a commitment and volume which allows us to offer an hourly rate that is both competitive and sustainable. This in turn means that we can attract trainers who are qualified, experienced and committed professionals.
ARE YOU SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY ON TRANSLATIONS AND INTERPRETERS?
Do you find that external translators sometimes fail to understand the tone, or lack the industry-specific language? On-the job training typically involves working with your documents. By working side-by-side with you, we make sure your document genuinely reflects your intended meaning and tone, and that your industry-specific terminology is used accurately. On-the-job training also means you learn by doing so, the next time you’ll be more confident and effective when writing alone.
ARE YOU SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON ADMINISTRATION AND ORGANIZATION?
We actively support you and your training department to ensure administration is simple and practical. This means that you can focus on more strategic tasks. Some of our clients ask us to manage and coordinate the complete training program, others ask us to help them with specific tasks. Being in-house also means we can share responsibility for driving the learning and motivating the participants.
Getting results that impact your business
HOW ARE YOU IDENTIFYING CLEAR, MEASURABLE GOALS WHICH ACTUALLY IMPACT YOUR BUSINESS AND HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY ARE BEING ACHIEVED?
You need to know if the training is impacting your business performance. Assessing training should go beyond “happy sheets” and levels. By using the Kirkpatrick New World Model, our experts can work with you to set up a realistic and easy-to-implement approach.
ARE YOU SEEING A REAL CHANGE IN YOUR STAFF’S PERFORMANCE WHEN WORKING IN ENGLISH?
A common request from our clients is to make “people less afraid of working in English”. By bringing the training into your department and being easily available to support you, your confidence will quickly grow. Performance isn’t just about confidence though. Your competence also rapidly increases as training is relevant and effective.
