HR Services For Car Dealerships

Running a car dealership is like juggling several balls at once. You’ve got sales, service, parts, the BDC, the manufacturer, the store itself, and customers. It’s a lot. In all the hustle and bustle, it’s easy to forget about the necessity of taking care of your team. Think about it like this: if your dealership is a car, then your team is the engine. Without a good, well-oiled engine, the car doesn’t run. Solid, strategic HR is the oil that allows your team to perform at its best. Managing human resources can be challenging and time-consuming, especially if you don’t have the expertise or the resources to do it properly. You must comply with complex and ever-changing employment laws, recruit and retain top talent, train and develop your staff, handle payroll and benefits, and deal with employee issues and conflicts. But what if someone else could design and drive the processes for you in a way that is both professional and efficient? This is where outsourced HR comes in. In retail automotive, you need a professional HR partner who can handle your people issues so you can focus on growing your bottom line.

How Outsourced HR Can Help Your Dealership

Experienced and certified HR consultants understand the unique challenges and opportunities that auto dealerships face, and they have the solutions to help you overcome them. Just like outsourcing car predictive campaigns to your marketing partner, an outsourced HR partner helps you manage your team effectively while maintaining your focus on your sales and service. It’s a practical way to help your dealership run smoothly and set it up for success. At Red Clover, we specialize in helping car dealerships like yours operate at peak performance, fueling your growth while freeing you to focus on what you do best. We can handle all or part of your HR functions, depending on your needs and budget. You want the best people on your team. The right HR partner knows what to look for in a good candidate – in terms of skillset and the behaviors that support your dealership’s values and culture. Outsourced HR is like having a specialist team at your disposal without the expense of full-time salaries and benefits. 

Reduce Employee Turnover

High employee turnover is disruptive and expensive. With the right HR support, you can improve employee retention, reducing the costs associated with hiring and training new staff. It’s preventive maintenance for your workforce, as an experienced HR partner can address employee issues and conflicts promptly and effectively, reducing turnover and absenteeism.

Enhance Your Employer Brand and Reputation

Your dealership’s reputation isn’t just about the cars you sell. A strong employer brand attracts top talent and keeps them. An outsourced HR partner can help create and articulate your employer brand messaging in a way that’s distinct but complementary to the product brand.

Capitalize on Leadership Development

Outsourced HR services often include leadership development and coaching programs that focus on understanding communication and leadership styles, motivational drivers, and EQ to build and support long term motivation.

Promote a Competitive Pay Plan

Ensuring your pay plan is competitive, equitable, and aligned to your goals for the dealership is critical to financial success, recruiting, engagement and talent retention. It’s the foundation that supports the rest of the HR strategy. There’s nothing worse than a bad or frequently changing pay plan. As your outsourced HR partner, our job is to ensure that the pay plan supports your goals, attracts the right people and promotes internal equity across the organization.

The Results

Construction and Contracting

A commercial roofing contractor was in hyper growth mode. They had goals to increase their field workforce to expand their service area to additional states and geographical locations. If they were to grow their field workforce, they would also need to increase their administrative, operational and sales headcount to support the additional workload created by increased field work. Additionally, they were challenged in workforce retention and development, experiencing high turnover, and did not have a dedicated Human Resources professional to manage employee relations and compliance issues that come with trying to scale a business.
