Service Manager Rick Nijakowski on showing employees they are valued

"On our service side, we have a monthly bash with a catered breakfast. We acknowledge each individual's accomplishments for the previous month, and award bonuses are paid out. Managers also provide departmental lunches throughout the month. Yark Automotive also gives employees multiple event tickets. This includes local events, concerts, baseball games and hockey games."

Nijakowski on keeping employees engaged

"We do monthly departmental competitive contests, bonus programs and factory training. Each department sets goals and holds meetings to discuss progress, problems to solve and ideas from each individual. This allows a team concept to help create a team environment and teamwork in the departments."
