Last week we discussed the value of total rewards for a dealership. Through the implementation of total rewards, prospective and current employees can be attracted, motivated, and retained. We now know that through the use of full compensation packages (a four-part concept), employees are motivated to perform even better. However, compensation is only one small portion of the total rewards toolkit. Also included are benefits, work-life balance, performance and recognition, and development and career opportunities. With the right combination of the total rewards pieces, you can create a package that will encourage employees to increase their performance as well as entice new applicants.
