David Tokarsky, new-car sales manager, on showing employees they are valued
"It starts with the gung-ho spirit that we all subscribe to. Everyone's work is worthwhile in its own right. Everyone has a clearly defined playing field (job description). When a person or department achieves their goal or a record, we celebrate with the whole dealership together at a luncheon."
Office Manager Beth Isley on keeping employees engaged
"Our leadership team is aware that if you work hard, you play hard. We have [Ontario Hockey League] tickets and class A Minor League Baseball tickets, along with sponsored event tickets, that are available to all employees. We have outings for everyone in the dealership to participate in twice a year — anything from extreme go-karting, to paintball to bowling."
General Manager John Margaritis on attracting employees
"We know that family is important, so we offer flexible working hours in every department."
