Milton Martin Toyota on Automotive News' list of Best Dealerships To Work For

By Staff
UNDATED - What makes a quality workplace? Which dealerships excel at treating employees well and have the top scores in workplace satisfaction?

Automotive News has attempted to identify those dealerships and the recognition begins with a list of the top 100 places to work - a summary that honors new-car dealerships in the U.S. that have excelled in creating a quality work environment.

Milton Martin Toyota in Gainesville is the only dealership in Georgia on the list.

A ranking of the top dealerships to work for will be revealed at a gala celebration Oct. 17 at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago where Automotive News will celebrate the achievements of all the dealerships recognized in the inaugural list of Best Dealerships To Work For.

That day, Automotive News also will host a half-day program -- "The Pursuit of Excellence: Attracting and Developing the Best." The program will include speakers from dealerships in the top of the ranking, plus experts in employee and customer satisfaction. The program's keynote speaker will be Michael Maroone, COO of AutoNation Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the largest dealership group in the country.

How the list was compiled

To arrive at this list of the Best Dealerships To Work For, Automotive News says Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., conducted a thorough company assessment of dealerships that chose to enter the process.

The two-part assessment was designed to gather detailed data about each participating company. In part one, the employer completed a questionnaire. In part two, employees completed a survey.

The collected information was combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths of the participating companies. The workplaces are ranked based on these data.
