Elevate 2017, the retail automotive industry’s first event focused exclusively on human capital management, is less than a month away. At the event, Hireology, along with Cox Automotive and NADA, will bring together more than 100 dealership General Managers, Dealer Principals and HR leaders to discuss strategy and tactically build their 2018 human capital management plans.

With only a few short weeks until Elevate 2017, we’ve pulled together an overview of some of the key workshop-style speaking sessions, and exclusive data that will be unveiled during the event.

Elevate 2017 Speaking Sessions and Panels

  • Building Your Human Capital Playbook to Win Your Market
  • Aligning People Strategy & Operational Models
  • Sourcing Strategy and Driving ROI Across Channels
  • Growing Talent for the Future of Your Organization
  • Compliance Mistakes that Destroy Enterprise Dealership Valuation
  • How Evolving Labor Market Trends are Reshaping Hiring, Training and Talent Management

Key Findings from the 2017 Dealership Staffing Study

Isabelle Helms, Vice President of Research & Market Intelligence at Cox Automotive, will lead one of the featured sessions at Elevate 2017 and exclusively unveil key findings from the 2017 Dealership Staffing Study. The study includes extensive research of more than 1,000 dealerships, their employees and the broader U.S. workforce. As mentioned in a previous blog post, the study found that two-thirds of dealerships don’t have a staffing strategy in place.

The Dealership Staffing Study also found that 25% of dealership employees say they will likely look for a new job in the next six months. Dealers need to make their human capital management strategy more of a priority, to hire the best teams possible, avoid turnover and retain top employees.
