Have you checked out Joe's Latest Blog?
By Joe Marconi in Joe's BlogA recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company. Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees! Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!

Episode 112 - New Vehicle Owners Are Orphans with Roger Lanctot
Hey all --
My team is getting ready to release a tool that reaches out to your customers automatically to ask for a review. Positive feedback returns a prompt to review on Google and Yelp. Negative feedback is caught and an autoresponder asks them to contact you to discuss. It's a great way to boost your online reputation without much effort. It works standalone and can also integrate with your shop management software. When you close a ticket it can automatically trigger the outreach cycle.
As an ASO member you can use it for free for 3 months. No credit card required.
Check it out. Feature requests and feedback always welcome -- RepCaster.com

This week Hunt talks about the most significant missing link between his clients that make money (rich people) and have money (wealthy people)
• Is there a relationship between how much money someone makes and how much money they actually have?
• What is your personal ratio, and how can you improve it?
• If you have never saved money, how can you start setting yourself up to be more responsible in the future?
• Is debt something to be avoided, or can you actually leverage debt to save more money?
