Motivate Your Money Makers!

So you’ve got the staff in place, you’ve got your policies laid out, and everybody is on board and ready to roll. Are you done? Do you sit back and watch and count your money? I don’t think so. Not yet, at least.

I’ve heard every side of the argument regarding proper motivation for production staff. Some won’t even dream of paying extra spiffs or bonuses to their staff with excuses like “well, it’s their job anyways,” or “I don’t want people cheating the system to make more money on spiffs.” Here’s a thought: If your people are finding ways to cheat the system or cheat your clients for their extra $5.00-$10.00 spiffs, then you’re not doing your job.

Spiffs aren’t the only way to motivate, however. A solid bonus program is like dangling a brick of gold in front of the hungriest of your production staff. In my time in management we played with plenty of ways of motivating the technicians. The best ever was a simple technician bonus program. It’s all about productivity and squeezing every bit of work into the few hours your department is running, so reward those that would beat record and increase their efficiency by developing such a program.

It can be as simple as this: Tech A is tasked with producing 200 sold hours within a month. If Tech A beats the 200 hour mark, add $1.00 to every sold hour they flagged, retroactively, for the month. Increase this in tiers: 225 hours is an additional $1.25, 250 hours is an additional $2.50, and so on. Your techs will have a reason to stay in their bay, a reason to perform thorough inspections, and a nice bonus to brag about in the following month. This will result in happier technicians, which means less turnover, and more hours flagged for the hours you turn the lights on. You can’t lose.

As far as consultants go, bonuses need to tackle more than just making money, but also making your clients happy. If you’re in the dealership world, then you know that client satisfaction is paramount. A service consultant can sell the paint off of the walls, but if his/her clients are unhappy it won’t even matter. Set up a tiered percentage bonus plan to reflect their efforts regarding client satisfaction and watch your customers roll of your drive with a smile on their face.

Proper Staffing is a MUST

Regardless of the industry, staffing is a must. Between juggling expenses and increasing revenue it’s sometimes tough to justify a higher debit from personnel expenses, but you have to consider the pros and cons before limiting your departments.

Throughout my career on the front-end of the automotive biz, I found myself in all sorts of different staffing situations. At times it felt like we had far too many people and there wasn’t enough work to go around. Other times we were stretched so thin we couldn’t breathe and it was all due to a management team that didn’t want to shell out the hourly expense of additional support staff.

There’s no perfect formula for deciding how many people should be clocked in and working on any given day, but let me try to make it easier for you: if your production staff, like service consultants and technicians, are finding themselves away from where they make you money the most (the front desk and in the work bays) then you’re in need of more support staff.

It’s no big mystery that if a technician is walking back and forth to the parts department to put in recommendations, acquire pricing, grab up-sold parts for vehicles, etc., the he or she is not making you or your company any money. If your consultant is pulling up vehicles, checking in cars on the drive, filling up amenities in the waiting room, etc., then yeah, you guessed it, they’re not making themselves any money or helping out your bottom line.

The simple expense of an extra porter, parts runner, or driver, pays for itself in no time when your department’s production staff are able to stay in their work station and produce.

In addition to staffing, there is software and other tools out there to help minimize the time that production staff and others spend doing tasks unrelated to producing. If you’re in the car business you’ve likely already been introduced to one or ore forms of these tools by vendors stepping into your office. AutoPoint, XTime, CDK, and others have solutions for automotive fixed operations that can turn your department into a well-oiled machine. Just be prepared to pay accordingly and make sure your entire team buys into the new processes.

The Blog is Growing

Hey everybody! Just wanted to do a very quick post to let everyone know how this blog is going to evolve.

In addition to my client services posts and my financial advice (mostly tuned towards professionals in the automotive industry,) I’m also adding several other features. Instead of a single-facet blog, I intend to turn this into a blog-ring. I’ll have pages for travel, pages for cooking, pages for gaming, pages for job help, education, programming/coding, etc. Essentially this blog will be a window into everything that makes me “me.”

My main purpose behind it all is to help everyone else out. If I can create some content that helps you answer a question, or helps you find a solution or a product to assist you, then I’ve done my job.

Stay tuned as the site is going to look a lot different; with a brand-new brand name and an updated feature-laden layout.

Thanks for stopping by, and good luck out there!
