Brian Heney, director of operations, on showing employees that they are valued: "We try to show appreciation to each member of our dealership throughout the year in many ways -- from a simple "thank you for all your efforts" and acknowledgement from upper management on a job well done to random gift cards. We also have some real sports fans in our store and provide tickets to various college and pro games when we can."
Heney on a change in response to staff requests: "We arranged a designated parking lot chart for many members of our staff. We had the area lined and numbered and drew a rendering that we handed out for all to see and abide by. It makes parking in the morning so much easier and has cut down on lot damage as well."
