Read Hireology’s 2023 State of Automotive Hiring Report to better understand the needs, expectations, and motivations of the modern automotive job seeker.
As many employers in the tech space grapple with layoffs and hiring freezes due to inflation and over-hiring during the pandemic, a completely different situation is at play in the retail automotive space. Many dealerships have never fully recovered the jobs they were forced to eliminate at the onset of the pandemic and now — more than three years later — are still struggling to attract talent for these roles.
The key for dealerships is to better understand the mindset of today’s typical automotive industry job seeker so you can reimagine your offerings and processes to stand out. In a recent Hireology survey of about 450 automotive industry job seekers, we set out to define the modern automotive worker.
This report outlines six common characteristics found in this group and what it means for you as an employer looking to fill open roles, better service customers, and maximize sales and revenue for your dealership.
