Automotive News names the Best Dealerships To Work For

Representatives of the top 10 dealerships of 2013

Click here for the 2014 list of the Automotive News' Best Dealerships to Work For. A ranking of the top dealerships will be announced in October.

Welcome to our annual celebration of the Best Dealerships To Work For in North America.

For the third year, Automotive News is proud to identify dealerships that are excelling in workplace satisfaction, talent retention and excellent treatment of their employees.

The recognition begins with this list of the top 101 places to work -- a summary that honors new-car dealerships in the United States and Canada that have excelled in creating a high-quality work environment.

This list is arranged geographically. A ranking of the top dealerships will be revealed at a ceremony Oct. 15 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago, where Automotive News will honor the dealerships on the list.

That day, Automotive News also will host a half-day conference, "Next Practices: Innovate, Motivate, Compensate." The program will include speakers from dealerships at the top of our ranking, plus experts in employee and customer satisfaction. The closing keynote speech will be delivered by Jason Dorsey, a nationally known speaker on issues involving generational differences in the workplace -- from baby boomers to millennials.

On Oct. 20, Automotive News will publish a special section that includes summaries of the top 101 dealerships. Some of the dealerships will be profiled in depth, with a look at the practices and policies that helped make them great places to work. Photos from the Best Dealerships To Work For celebration in Chicago will be included.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
