A LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER

Best Dealerships To Work For

How we did it
To arrive at this list of Best Dealerships To Work For, Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., conducted a thorough company assessment of dealerships that chose to enter the process.
The two-part assessment gathered detailed data about each company. In part one, the employer completed a questionnaire about company policies and benefits. In part two, employees completed a survey about their workplace.
The information was combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine those companies' strengths. The workplaces are ranked based on those data.
The ranking will be revealed at the Chicago event Oct. 14 and will be included in a special section of Automotive News on Oct. 19.

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

Since 2012, Automotive News has been proud to identify dealerships that are leaders in workplace satisfaction, talent retention and excellent treatment of their employees.

The recognition begins with a list of the top 100 places to work -- car dealerships in North America that have created a high-quality work environment.

The final ranking of top dealerships -- from No. 1 to No. 100 -- will be revealed at a ceremony Oct. 14 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, "From Recruitment to Retention: Finding and Keeping the Best."

The program will include speakers from dealerships at the top of our ranking, plus experts in employee and customer satisfaction. On Oct. 19, Automotive News will publish a special section that includes summaries of the top 100 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.

See you in Chicago!
