Hi from Louisiana

Hello all.

 

It's nice to find a forum with people in the same business helping each other out. I got started in the automotive business about 12 years ago working as a tech helper in a paint and body shop. I've loved cars since I was little, bought my first truck (1982 Silverado) in 1998 when I was 17. It was full of rust and I wanted to work on it myself, so I got a job at a paint and body shop. Worked there for a while, went to school, co-owned a custom accessory and performance shop for several years. Got out of that, had kids, moved to 20 acres in the middle of the woods with 5 horses and now I focus on copywriting and Internet marketing for automotive businesses. Whew, that was all a mouthful! ;)

 

I've been a freelance writer and Internet marketer for about 8 years now. I love helping people figure out the best place for them on the Internet and helping them grow their business using their website. Yes, I do this as my job, but I also like just teaching people because I like it. If anyone has any questions, just ask and I'm happy to help or give advice.

 

Looking forward to being a productive member here.

 

Thanks,

Traci

      A 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!

      This week Hunt discusses the actual cost of that aging loaner fleet. Are they really as cheap as you think?
      • What is an opportunity cost? How does that impact the actual cost of my loaner fleet?
      • Does opportunity cost apply to me and my team equally?
      • So, you spend a couple hundred dollars in parts to keep that beater on the road, but is it really "cheaper than a car payment?"
      • How does opportunity cost apply to a tow truck that I also have off the road and not making me money?

      This recent trip out west - taught me some things about being connected Our own story of feeling like we were “on an island” Shop Owners are disconnected and feel the same way It doesn’t have to be that way Conversations that pointed me to the movie “Cast Away”  We were not created or designed to be alone. We need community.  Chuck Noland (in Cast Away) found a companion in “Wilson”. Who is your tribe? Other Shop Owners Facebook Groups 20 Groups Masterminds What resources do you have? What do you have to give? Coaches Industry groups/associations Industry Events You find what you’re looking for. So, look for connections. Take action.  As we visited shop owner after shop owner, we found ourselves having similar conversations about this ‘island’. Now we’ve connected our shop clients to the industry, other shop owners, and resources. Be a giver, a connector, a helper
