An emphasis on training and personal growth
The strong focus on personal development ensures that the qualifications of, and approach by, all members of staff are aligned with the ethos of the Group, and the requirements that manufacturers have for the business units that represent them. This, together with management playing a supportive and guiding role, creates a dynamic work environment where expertise, self-esteem, job satisfaction and teamwork serve as starting points to offer the level of service expected in the environment in which the Group operates.
The Group has a system-based approach as far as the task at hand, quality management within the business, and the end result go. To do so, it developed and documented standardized processes for all its activities, based on best practices and proven methodology. This structured method of operation gives guidance to the workforce on how to approach their task, and it ensures consistency in output and the quality of work. A major benefit of this approach is that it shifts management’s focus to ongoing improvement of internal processes and the output of the business as a whole, instead of having to constantly oversee the performance of individual employees.
Employees work within a team environment where there is a practical approach towards the task and opportunity to show initiative. It is expected of employees to take ownership of their work and adhere to standards and the laid down criteria, act in a principled, fair and honest manner, and show mutual respect towards one another. Team members are, furthermore, given the opportunity to become familiar with the role of others in the business, and are encouraged to learn from and support one another. This is in line with the dealership’s approach to create a team which accepts responsibility for the overall success of the business.
Employees can expect to face challenges in their work but, at the same time, will experience the satisfaction of dealing with these issues successfully. Those employed have the opportunity to learn and grow personally, and to give input and contribute towards the success of the business. Above all, they have the benefit of a secure job environment where employees are able to reap the rewards of being part of this well-qualified and efficient team.
