Why Shops Need to Focus on Technician Career Development

Type: Virtual Event
Date: February 24, 2021 | 7pm CT
Panelists: TBD

One of the biggest complaints we hear from technicians is they are often frustrated with not having a clear path for career growth in a shop. As career development becomes more important to technicians, it is critical that shops and dealerships make this a priority.

During this roundtable, our panelists will help us understand the growing importance of career development programs in shops, what some of those programs look like, and what results shops have seen by having a program in place.
