Elevate 2020 wrapped last week, and though the all-virtual event had a different format than in year’s past, each session brought the same degree of impactful takeaways to the retail auto industry.
Jason Stein, Publisher at Automotive News, moderated three weeks of meaningful discussions between Hireology’s CEO and Founder, Adam Robinson and various industry professionals like Peter Fong, Chief Revenue Officer at Orbee Auto, Inder Dosanjh, President of California Automotive Retailing Group Inc., and Michelle Harrow, the Head of Recruiting for Twitter.
Here are some of the takeaways from Elevate 2020, and if you’re interested in rewatching any of the events, you can access them on-demand here.
Understanding Your Applicants Matters
What type of candidate are you attracting to your dealership? Do you know what your candidates are looking for from your hiring process? Does it take weeks for you to respond to applicants? These are all important questions that you should have nailed down, but it’s not always easy to do so.
Hireology surveyed a pool of recently hired candidates to help dealerships better understand the applicant sentiment. You can find their responses and our report on the applicant experience here.
