Keeping customers through the life cycle of vehicle ownership is a major goal for new-vehicle dealerships. Achieving that goal goes a long way toward increasing your bottom line.

Both goals are dependent on your employees. Good employees create trust. And trust is what keeps customers coming back, for service, for parts, and for their next new vehicle.

Do you have the kind of employees who create this kind of trust? Can you attract them—with competitive pay, benefits, work schedules? What about retention—are you keeping your employees for the three years necessary to achieve peak production?

Find out by participating in the NADA Dealership Workforce Study:
