How does the Best Dealerships program work?
To be included in the search for Canada's Best Dealerships To Work For, you must register online through this website.

Once registered, your dealership will be contacted by the program administrator, Best Companies Group. They'll walk you through a simple yet thorough two-part dealership assessment. Part one is a questionnaire about dealership policies, practices and demographics. Part two is a survey of all employees in the dealership, in which they respond to 78 statements on a five point agreement scale, and 2 open-ended and 7 demographic questions. The collected information will be used to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of each dealership.

Dealerships named among the best will be profiled in the October 15 issue of Automotive News Canada, celebrated at a Toronto event celebrated on October 23 at the Four Seasons in Toronto, and will have earned the right to call themselves Canada's Best Dealerships To Work For of 2018!

Is there a charge to participate?
No! There is no charge to participate in the Best Dealerships program.

BONUS: Upon completion of the program, every dealership will receive a FREE Employer Benchmark Summary, a sample of averages on employee benefits and best practices, and a great tool to help benchmark some of the most common benefits offered compared to those of your organization.

Who can participate?
Any new car dealership in Canada that's been in business for more than one year, and has more than 25 employees, may participate in the program.
