Finding, hiring and retaining staff will be front and centre at a session being offered at the upcoming AAPEX 2022 event.
Kathleen Long, of the RepairPal (www.repairpal.com) auto repair network for high quality and fair prices will present Inclusive Hiring, Onboarding, and Employee Retention Practices on Wednesday, Nov 2, 2022 .
The event is held at the Venetian Expo, Level 1, Repair Shop HQ Training Room 4, starting at 9:30 am through 12:00 pm PT.
“The demand for technicians is high, and continues to be a hot topic in the aftermarket. I feel a responsibility to provide shop owners with the tools they need to hire the right people for the right job, and improve their overall hiring practices to set employees up for success. This course will provide shop owners the knowledge needed on how diversity and inclusive hiring practices can actually help solve the technician shortage and improve the results of their business,” says Kathleen Long, CRO at RepairPal.
Geared towards shop owners, the training seminar will explore how to hire and keep employees, inspired by the technician shortage. Today, it is harder than ever to find qualified talent, hire, onboard and retain them over time.
There is a lot of conversation about diversity and inclusion but few practical suggestions on how to accomplish it.
There is also a need for today’s automotive aftermarket to modernize hiring practices and set employees up for success. There is a common misconception that diversity in hiring makes it more challenging to find the right folks for the job.
Kathleen hopes those in attendance will walk away with the following learner outcomes:
● Write a compelling and inclusive job description
● Learn how to position your role for maximum visibility
● Create a hiring process that allows you to select the best candidate(s)
● Create company culture that attracts the right candidates
● Market and promote the culture and values of your company/shop
