Dowd on showing employees they are valued

"Every Friday, we have a barbecue lunch on-site for all of our employees. Once a year, we treat our employees to bring their family to Six Flags. In addition, when we achieve team goals, we reward our employees with fun outings such as high-speed go-karting. We also regularly host smaller, in-house employee events such as ice cream day to show our appreciation."

Dowd on keeping employees engaged

"Our dealership rewards our top-performing employees monthly and quarterly. Rewards range from a monetary incentive to extra time off."

Dowd on a successful healthy living program

"We offer a wellness program that rewards our employees for healthy lifestyles by compensating them with discounts off of our benefits package. We also have a dealership annual 'biggest loser' contest for our employees with a reward for the winners."

Dowd on attracting employees

"We have an entire HR department dedicated to finding top people to work for our company. [Penske] offers benefits, paid vacation time and 401(k) for our employees."
