  1. Let's face it, we all know you can't find techs, and it's time that we do something about it. We all need to implement an apprentice program at our shops and hire entry level techs. And we need to start tomorrow. I know many of you are saying that you don't need a tech right now. Well, trust me. You will. And I don't want to hear you can't afford to do this either. No one is going to help us, and the best techs have jobs. If everyone in the industry commits to hiring an apprentice, we will solve the this shortage in a few years. There are many apprenticeship programs available, like the NAPA program, and more. Oh....worried that you train someone and they leave. Let me ask you, How Did You Start Out?
  2. Free webinar for all members hosted by @Ron Ipach from Captain Car Count! As you already know, finding good, qualified technicians isn’t as easy as it was in years past. Gone are the days of simply placing a few ads online or in the newspaper help-wanted section. When you combine the fact that more shops than ever are in the hunt for qualified applicants, with the ever-shrinking pool of technicians to draw from, it’s no wonder so many shop owners are frustrated with their search. Attracting good technicians today requires a radically different approach, and on this highly informative online training event, Ron Ipach, president of Repair Shop Coach, will walk you through the same strategies that his clients are using to attract lots of highly qualified to their shops on a consistent basis. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER Time slots vary and are held weekly: Please reach out to @Ron Ipach for additional information.
  3. Too many shop owners go into hire-crisis mode when they lose an employee. With no real plan, you ask everyone you know, put ads out, and research online sources. But all too often, you end up hiring the wrong person. Why? Desperation. You need to fill a position with someone. Hiring is perhaps one of the most important aspects of running a business. You need to hire right, and that means taking your time, interview as many candidates as possible and look for reasons not to hire as much as reasons to hire someone. ​You also need a plan before you lose an employee. You need to adopt the strategy of recruiting. Constantly look for the top talent in your area and build your pipeline. Connect with this top talent and create a contact list. Maintain a relationship. ​With this strategy, when the time comes when you lose an employee, you will be in a better position to fill that spot with the right person.

  5. Its no surprise to anyone in the business that it is getting increasingly harder to find qualified entry level techs. Trade schools are producing graduates, but where are they? And, how qualified are they? We need to address this industry problem. Timing is right; more and more people are realizing that the trades are great alternatives to professional markets that are saturated with lawyers, accountants and financial positions. Where do you go to find techs? How many are home-grown anymore?
