Auto/Mate’s Druzynski to Present ‘How to Win the Fixed Ops Talent War’ at DrivingSales Executive Summit

Dave Druzynski will share tips on how to source and recruit job candidates and how to establish a hiring process that ensures every new hire is a good culture fit with your organization.

Auto/Mate Dealership Systems’ Chief People Officer David Druzynski will present at the upcoming DrivingSales Executive Summit in Las Vegas. In his session titled “How to Win the Fixed Ops Talent War” Druzynski will tackle one of the biggest challenges that auto dealers face today.

“Employee turnover rates continue to be a problem at dealerships for several reasons,” said Druzynski. “Many dealers lack effective recruiting, hiring and onboarding processes. Additionally, culture, mentorship and professional development programs are all important to ensure you can attract and retain the best candidates.”

Druzynski will co-present the breakout session with his cousin Tom Druzynski, director of service operations at West Herr Auto Group in New York.

In the breakout session, Dave Druzynski will share tips on how to source and recruit job candidates and how to establish a hiring process that ensures every new hire is a good culture fit with your organization.

In 2017 Tom Druzynski successfully filled 100 technician positions for West Herr Auto Group. He will share the program they use, including partnering with schools, internships, referral bonuses and a 5-level mentorship program that has been key in helping to fill the technician void.

“Our recruiting program ensures a steady supply of technicians without resorting to poaching from the competition, which is a tactic that drives up labor costs for everyone,” said Tom Druzynski.

Session attendees will learn how to:

  • Create a comprehensive recruiting program
  • Build and market a culture and employment brand to attract top talent
  • Create professional development programs designed to retain employees and grow their careers

Druzynski is scheduled to speak Monday, October 22 at 11:15 a.m. The DrivingSales Executive Summit runs Oct. 21-23 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Click here to register and use the code AUTOMATEVIP for a $150 discount.

Parts Rates for Warranty Reimbursement Could Be a Hidden Gem for Dealers

Parts rates are not a “set it and forget it” endeavor. Just like labor, they should be monitored and adjusted accordingly.

Parts Rates for Warranty Reimbursement Could Be a Hidden Gem for Dealers

Labor rates seem to be top of mind for most dealers as they embark down the warranty reimbursement path due in large part to the fact that labor rates typically increase annually and therefore yield the most room for improvement year over year. But most state statutes also include provisions for parts rates to be submitted annually, or semiannually in some cases. While some dealers assume that a parts submission won’t be worth the effort, that simply isn’t the case. Relying on that assumption could lead to dealers leaving a lot of money on the table.
