Use Checklists as a training tool


Recommended Posts

It takes a while for any new employee to get up to speed in thier new position, no matter how seasoned they are.  We have found that using checklists for basic procedures are a great way to acclimate new employees.  

What strategies to you use to get new employees up to seed?

      Team apathy- Is the owner being disengaged or having burnout? Maya Angelou quote -  “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” If we don't care how the other person feels, we have failed.    Showing you care with customers and employees Leadership role- make the people your passion Engagement survey- is there someone at work that encourages my development? Does my supervisor care about me as a person? Think about the last time you had an engaged server at a restaurant- how did that make you feel? What are your employee roadblocks? How can you remove that roadblock for them? How are you doing? How are we doing? How is the company doing? Performance management instead of reviews High priority interrupts- addressing and correcting issues immediately Hiring process-12 step process, 3-6 weeks, meetings, writing assignments, discussions. Are you passionate about customers? How have you wowed a customer? How did you make an upset customer, happy? DISC assessment. Connect with the show:

      We have been a long time user of RO Writer (10+ years) but feel it is somewhat behind the times when it come to features. We are also using AutoVitals on top of it which we absolutely love. We have been using it for a little over 2 years. Along with that we are using The Back Office for our Quickbooks interrogation. We also use an outside payroll processor to handle all benefits, payroll and retirement. I used to handle all this through Quickbooks and chose to outsource a couple of years ago to reduce some of the administrative burdens of dealing with healthcare, 401K etc..
       
      Based upon my managers and AutoVitals conversations, ROWriter is becoming difficult to work with regarding the latest updates.
      I am really looking for a fully integrated product, preferably web-based solution. We are currently evaluating a demo version of MaxxTraxx. I really want something I can look at remotely without having to dial into the onsite server. I am a hands off owner and don't get involved in day to day operations but I look at numbers and stats daily. It also needs to support multiple locations.
       
      Any input or recommendations would be appreciated. We are not taking this lightly as we know its a lot of work to convert as we just went through this last year in our bodyshop.

      Are there are any repair jobs your shop prefers to not do for whatever reason?

      Long story but I need to know what this green wire is for or what circuit it's in. It's the harness in the left rear of the car that goes from underneath up into the left quarter panel. 
      Thanks and Happy New Year, hope your shop is doing great!

      Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and technicians first. By always innovating, Dorman has led the way in growing the aftermarket. Here you will see a few examples of a Dorman OE Fix. An OE FIX is a Dorman repair solution you can’t get from the original equipment manufacturer. It means they found a situation where they believe the OEM wasn’t giving repair professionals what they wanted, so we fixed it. Everything Dorman does is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of products, and the creativity of solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time and save vehicle owners money. Want to really go under the hood?
