Human Resources Administrator Nicole Romero on helping employees develop a career path: We have a career-path chart that we show employees so they know the timelines and options that could be available to them in the future. We provide training and job shadowing to help them find the right path. Promoting from within is always looked at before posting positions externally.
Romero on methods developed to reward employees and show they are valued: We have a “Massive-Value” competition where we recognize employees for their massive value to the dealership. These winning teams get put into a draw for prizes at the end of the year. To date, two trips, plus televisions, iPads and iPhones have been awarded. Each Monday morning begins with a “jumpstart” rally [where] a different employee speaks regarding our core values, business updates, positive news to share. Birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions are also recognized.
Dealer Principal Jonathan Eltes on steps taken to reflect the community, market demographics and cultural diversity, and to attract female employees: We currently have a diverse demographic and [company] culture. We try to hire employees who reflect each ethnic background. We have attracted many women employees and given them a step into the dealership through job roles like BDC [business development centre].
