How Much Is Turnover Costing You?

image description

A certain amount of turnover is expected. Jobs and industries ebb and flow. But a constant stream of new automotive employees can be very expensive and cost valuable time. So, stemming that tide would be to your benefit. Careful consideration of who you want to hire is essential to the stability of your business.

Let's look at an all too common occurrence these days. You find a new manager with a resume full of great experience from different dealerships in your state and around the area. You meet and decide his management style would fit well with your staff. He's what you've been looking for and you hire him immediately. After about 6 months, he's really getting the hang of things and the dealership is running well. And then, you get the dreaded resignation letter. You're surprised, but should you be?

Hindsight is 20/20. Although the resume was loaded with wonderful experience, it also showed an alarming work history. He was a serial job changer. This is where having an automotive recruiter, like Autopeople, can be a great asset. Recruiters are on the lookout for this behavior. We can help weed out these candidates who are constantly changing jobs because they aren't happy, are always looking for something bigger and better, or perhaps they've gotten fired a few times. Recruiters can save you thousands of dollars and the headaches involved in having to hire new people.

If you're ready to find the right candidates who will move your dealership forward, contact us at Autopeople. Our experience and drive to find the best will make your search easier and help you to find long lasting employees.
