Brossard, 21 octobre 2019 – Park Avenue Volkswagen is proud to announce that it is in the top 25 on the list of “2019 Best Dealerships to Work for in Canada.”

The employees and management of Park Avenue Volkswagen were asked to complete questionnaires and surveys, and the answers were rigorously evaluated by Best Companies Group, putting the dealership on the list of best places to work in automotive retail in the country.

At Park Avenue Volkswagen, a two-pronged approach is taken to employee satisfaction. First, Groupe Park Avenue has ethics and equity policies that enshrine its core values. Also, since 2017, all employees have had access to Académie Park Avenue, an internal “continuing education school” that provides ongoing training courses for all fields of activity.

On the dealership side, General Manager Éric Gingras gives his employees flexible work schedules, arranges a monthly group dinner at which everyone reviews the previous month and sets the objectives for the next one, and more. 

 

Early in 2019, the dealership brought onboard some product specialists and team managers, two initiatives that have helped boost employee synergy. 

 

“Park Avenue Volkswagen must be at the forefront and adapt to consumer purchasing patterns. The outcomes of changes we made in 2019 demonstrate that our approach is working and is contributing to employee well-being. To be named one of the best dealerships to work for in Canada is an honour, but also an accomplishment that tells us we’re on the right path.”

Norman John Hébert, Vice-president and Chief Experience Officer, Groupe Park Avenue.

 

The 25 finalists will gather to celebrate their achievement at the Toronto Hilton on October 23.
