Employee turnover costs the average dealership $500,000 every year. How can your team unleash its full potential if the players are constantly changing? Build a team of superheroes by recruiting more effectively, empowering your players, and increasing transparency. You’ll increase sales and profits, decrease turnover costs, and strengthen employee and customer loyalty.

Break Through Negative Perceptions

Many potential employees have negative perceptions of car dealers, making it difficult to attract the best talent. Show them your dealership is different by offering more transparency and opportunity. Most people dislike high-risk, commission-based compensation plans, especially Millennials, who account for 61% of new dealership hires. Ray Skillman Auto Group replaced commission-based sales roles with salary-based product specialists, decreasing turnover by 60%.

Increase Retention with Transparency

For employees, open communication with management builds trust. Employees would rather hear bad news than no news. Rather than focusing only on tactics, share the reasoning behind a new strategy so employees can more effectively achieve the goals. Sharing important information when possible decreases turnover and improves performance.
