WrenchWay June Topic of the Month: Great Owners & Managers

According to a recent WrenchWay Insiders poll, 65% of technicians have left or considered leaving a job because of a manager. In this competitive job market, shop owners and managers need to be doing everything they can to build and foster relationships with technicians.

Throughout the month of June, we will be sharing content, hosting events, and working with our clients to help improve and promote the relationships between managers/owners and technicians. We will also be sharing stories about great managers and owners from some of our Top Shops. Join us by participating in one or all of the following:
