AM is searching for the best dealerships in the UK to work for. This programme recognises and honours the best employers by measuring the views of their employees.

We look after our people because they are the key to our success. It’s a phrase often uttered by retail group directors but which are the best dealerships to work for in the UK? AM plans to find out in this initiative called "Best UK Dealerships To Work For."

AM has teamed up with Best Companies Group, which produces similar studies in other industries, to find and recognise the best places to work in the franchised dealer sector. It will be the first survey to look purely at automotive retailers.

The programme is based on the view of employers and the verdicts of employees over a number of key metrics, including leadership and planning, culture and communications, working environment, relationships with managers, training/development and pay/benefits.

The collected information will be combined to enable Best Companies Group to determine the strength and weaknesses of participating companies. They will then be assessed on this data, with the best being granted "Best UK Dealerships To Work For" status.

In addition to identifying the best dealerships, AM will also compile a secondary listing based on dealer groups. Both will be published in a report launched at Automotive Management Live on November 9. The listings will be alphabetical not by ranking, with each dealership honoured exceeding a minimum threshold.

Participation in the "Best UK Dealerships To Work For" programme is completely free. All companies recognised in the listing will be able to use the "Best UK Dealerships To Work For" logo for promotional work.
