Last month we announced that we’ll be hosting Elevate — the only retail automotive event focused on giving you the knowledge you need to attract, hire, and manage your best team — in-person this year. But given the continued unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 virus, we’ve decided to once again host the event virtually.
The good news is that all of the speakers and content we planned to cover will remain the same. With the shift to virtual, you’ll be able to catch all of the action from the safety of your own home or office and free of charge. The event will still be held on Tuesday, October 19.
Register here for Elevate 2021. As a refresher, here are the details of each session we have secured so far along with the updated time slots:
Attract Top Talent in a Post-Pandemic Labor Market
Speaker: Adam Robinson, Hireology
Time: 1:30pm–2:15pm CT
Hireology’s CEO Adam Robinson will offer advice on how to stand out and build a pipeline of talent in a crowded labor market. He will reveal the results of a 2021 Hireology study based on a survey of more than 5,000 recent job applicants — providing a unique look into the minds of today’s post-pandemic job seekers. Adam will then dig into how you can translate these insights into actionable steps to help you improve your hiring efforts at a time when attracting top talent is more important than ever.
Redefining the Post-Pandemic Dealership Workforce
Speaker: John Malishenko, Germain Motor Company
Time: 2:20pm–3:10pm CT
John Malishenko from Germain Motor Company will discuss how he overcame pandemic-related hiring challenges by redefining the workforce at his dealership. He’ll explain the skills he looks for in new hires today, the channels he uses to recruit these folks, and why this newfound definition of the modern dealership worker means lower employee turnover and ultimately higher profits.
How Tech-Driven Car Dealerships are meeting Internal and External Customer Needs
Speaker: Napoleon Rumteen, Tekion
Time: 3:15pm–4:45pm CT
Napoleon Rumteen, Sr. Vice President of Commercial Operations at Tekion will talk about how dealerships can leverage the power of technology to re-imagine automotive retail to maximize operational efficiency.
