AM is seeking the opinions of readers to establish whether car retailers’ plans to reduce their investment on headcount 2019 could spark a shift towards a push towards improved recruitment and training.
Respondents to a recent survey published by Automotive Management (AM) revealed that 34.5% of car retailers intended to spend less on headcount than in 2018, compared to just 21.8% who said it would increase and 47.9% who said it would remain unchanged.
With the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) establishing new resources to offer advice on the best use of the apprenticeship levy and another rise in the national minimum wage in April, AM is keen to learn about retailers’ plans to replenish, train and retain their workforce in the year ahead.
From inspiring the automotive retail stars of tomorrow, to training and developing existing staff and driving the ambitions of the directors, retailers can contribuite to an overall view of the sector's intentions for their staff for the year ahead in our latest survey.
