Tech Recruiting - Cracking the Code

The session will focus on a new and innovative solution to recruiting technicians and maximizing the efficiency and retention of current techs and employees. Collision centers need to be able to attract skilled labor from a much wider pool of candidates those than who are already in the industry and/or the and small number of those who are aspiring to enter it. In order to do this, owners need proven methods to determine if someone from outside the industry will be a successful long-term fit, and upon doing so need access to specific hands-on training designed to teach specific skills necessary to add instantaneous value and productivity while providing the steps for ongoing skill development and career advancement.

Attendees will walk away with access to both: An affordable, proven candidate profiling solution AND an affordable, proven hands-on upskill efficiency training solution specific to shop/employee needs and desires.
