Available talent has been in decline for decades in the collision repair industry but is now at a crisis level! Your host, Luehr, has recently taken on a chairman position with the Collision Industry Conference’s Talent Pool Committee to address the problem. During August’s Free Elite Webinar, Luehr is teaming up with industry icon Bickett, along with CCI’s Amber Ritter to share what they have learned about the talent shortage and what shops can do about it.
“It's time we all do our part to correct this problem,” said Luehr, “but I feel like much of the industry doesn’t know exactly how to correct it. Bickett, Ritter and I plan on shedding some incredibly valuable light on what is keeping people away from the collision industry and what collision repairers can do to be a part of the solution.”
Attending this free webinar could be one of the most important things to your business success in a long time! Luehr, Bickett, and Ritter will be discussing topics such as:
- What is causing the shortage?
- What are the barriers to solving it?
- What the industry can do to make itself an attractive trade.
- What shops can do to attract more talent.
- Working with schools.
- Apprenticeship programs.
- Much more!
Every month, the Elite Academy highlights a topic to keep collision repairers and those that serve them well informed with relevant information required to be successful in today’s challenging business environment. The webinars feature a wide range of top industry leaders in an interactive and often entertaining format.
