CHICAGO — Hireology, the only all-in-one hiring and HR platform designed for franchised dealerships, announced Tuesday that it will help support General Motors’ nationwide initiative focused on generating interest in automotive technician careers and attracting new technician talent to GM Dealerships. Hireology will serve an HR technology partner to support GM’s efforts and ensure GM Dealers are set up for recruitment and hiring success.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to support GM in this incredibly important effort,” said Mike McSherry, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Hireology. “At Hireology, we work with one in four dealerships nationwide so we deeply understand the unique hiring challenges dealerships face today, especially in fixed operations. And we pride ourselves on building hiring technology and solutions designed specifically with the auto industry’s needs in mind.”
Using Hireology, GM Dealerships will be able to create content-rich career sites, share open roles across leading job boards, and even power their employee referral programs using the company’s built-in referral technology, EmployUs. Additionally, dealerships can use Hireology to order background checks, seamlessly onboard new hires, and even conduct payroll.
GM’s technician recruitment effort and collaboration with Hireology comes at a time when hiring skilled talent is harder than ever for dealerships. As U.S. skilled labor shortages continue to rise, dealerships across the country struggle to fill roles left open by turnover and an aging generation moving into retirement. It’s time to rethink the notion if you don’t go to college you won’t have a successful career. As an automotive technician, natural aptitude for STEM and problem-solving gets rewarded with competitive pay and benefits without the pressure of overburdening student loans. That’s why GM Dealerships know it’s time to start advertising the unique aspects of, and advantages to, pursuing a career as a GM technician.
“These days it’s more important than ever to put time and effort into improving your hiring processes in order to fill open roles quickly and maximize sales,” said McSherry. “Top talent isn’t going to come knocking on your door, you have to do everything you can to stand out among competition and move your best candidates through your hiring process fast. And Hireology is built to help you do just that.”
