Building successful dealerships requires a lot of time, hard work and passion from its management. Providing a rewarding environment for dealership employees and sales staff also takes dedication–but it ultimately leads to a rewarding work life and lifelong career in the automotive industry.

Automotive News recently released their 2013 list of the Best Dealerships to Work For in North America, containing the top 100 dealerships that have excelled in providing the highest quality workplace environment for their employees. We extend our congratulations to each of the dealerships featured on this year’s list.

The honorees will gather in Chicago this October for a special dinner highlighting the top dealerships of this prestigious list, preceded by a half-day conference centered on building the best sales force and employee retention. These dealerships will also be highlighted in a special section in Automotive News’ October 21st issue.

We truly enjoy seeing other companies succeed, especially those that embrace our customers and take the happiness of their employees into consideration. We also commend Automotive News for taking the time to recognize these dealerships for their commitment to excellence.
