The encore took place in the southern part of the state the following day at the Hilton Garden Inn in Hamilton, NJ.
Designed to increase engagement, improve teamwork, boost productivity, maximize compensation and improve the working environment, the seminar focused on the culture of a business and was taught by Jerry McNee, AASP/NJ president, and John Niechwiadowicz of QLC, Inc.
According to McNee, “Creating culture within your business, developing team work, and stressing the importance of working together is imperative, and we demonstrated how a break in the chain can affect the entire repair process. The event was well-received by all attendees. The majority of the shops present had multiple attendees---one shop signed up 19 of his employees, [and] both classes maxed out. Attendees actively participated in the discussion and seemed to understand how improving one’s success in business starts with improving shop culture.”
AASP/NJ was pleased with the meetings, and McNee feels the events went better than expected.
“We always want to offer value and engage participants,” he said. “The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive and lets us know we are offering value for attendees. It’s important for associations to give back to our members, offer support, provide information on current topics, share strategies that work, and offer items they can use immediately.”
Both meetings were co-sponsored by Central Paint, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and AASP/NJ as a way to provide value to the industry.
