Technology Drives Efficiency

Top techs take pride in their efficiency and want to produce quality work quickly. Using antiquated software - having to switch between devices and write up the same ticket over and over again slows a tech down and impacts productivity. When you have processes in place and are backed by innovative technology, it could be the deciding factor when seeking their next employment opportunity. 

Both Urban Autocare and Aspen Auto Clinic have nailed down a great system for recruiting and retaining talented techs, but it hasn't been an easy road. In this webinar, they share how to: 

  • Diversify where you are recruiting from
  • Play the long game (always be on the lookout for new recruits)
  • Make your shop stand out in job postings
  • Gauge an applicant's mechanical aptitude
  • Leverage video interviews to make sure their values align with the culture of your shop
  • Grow your pipeline of talented technicians through apprenticeship programs
