DEALERS URGED TO PARTICIPATE IN NADA WORKFORCE / COMPENSATION STUDY

DEADLINE APPROACHING - MAY 2nd!

www.nadaworkforcestudy.com

NADA and ATD member dealers have until May 2, 2012, to take part in NADA’s new Dealership Workforce Study (DWS) that will analyze employee compensation, benefits, turnover and other data. There is no cost to participate in the study. This enhanced annual study replaces the prior biennial NADA Compensation Study. 

The study will provide dealers with valuable comparative data to assess and adjust, if necessary, their employee compensation programs, health and retirement benefit packages, and find out what it takes to be competitive in recruiting new employees,”
said Marilynn Youngs, senior director of NADA University.

The online survey should take you about 20 minutes to complete! You do not have to go through your payroll records at all. Simply download your payroll data from your DMS, save in the Excel template provided on the DWS website, and upload using the secure web server. Follow the step-by-step instructions on the DWS website. 

***Visit the survey web site to participate***
www.nadaworkforcestudy.com
Participating dealers receive an individualized comparison report (Basic Report) and a Driven Management Guide summary report at no charge.

Why should I participate in the DWS?

  • Learn how your dealership compares to other dealerships in terms of compensation, benefits, retention, turnover, and other factors—and fine-tune your pay plans and benefits packages to enhance your recruitment, motivation, and retention efforts
  • Make the results as complete, detailed, and statistically valid as possible—the more participants, the more authoritative the study can be
  • Provide the data to enable NADA and your state and metro associations to better serve your interests in legal and legislative matters
  • Provide information that NADA University can use to determine the HR issues facing dealers and to develop the educational solutions needed to address those issues
