For each day a dealership has an open role, an average of $1,000 in gross profit is lost. And dealerships are facing more challenges than ever before when it comes to hiring, due to a record-low unemployment rate, few job seekers interested in retail automotive careers and baby boomer employees retiring at a rapid rate.
In today’s competitive, applicant-driven economy, Fox Motors understands the importance of prioritizing its people strategy and creating a top-notch candidate experience. The dealership group with more than 30 locations has a defined vision for its people strategy: to effectively hire, develop and train staff to provide both a remarkable customer experience and viable career path growth for employees.
Fox Motors started working with Hireology in 2016 with the goal of taking its people operations to the next level and driving more value back to the business. The leadership team was looking to drive consistency across all Fox Motors locations, as well as set up new stores up for success as they join the Fox family through acquisitions.
For new markets specifically, Fox wanted to tell the story of its incredible training and mentorship program that make the brand a noted employer in its existing communities, but may not have been known in their expanded markets.
Hireology has been implemented successfully across all Fox locations and has helped showcase the Fox culture and mentorship program through a compelling career site as well as an immersive career video that highlights the Fox opportunity across all departments and levels. We recently pulled together a case study featuring several key metrics as a result of the relationship. Some highlights include:
- 1,400 hires made since 2017
- 19 day average time to hire (the average time to hire at a dealership is 26 days)
- More than a quarter (26%) of hires generated from the Fox Motors career site
