The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas today named this year’s marine industry Great Dealerships to Work For at Dealer Week 2021, the association’s annual conference and expo.
Twenty-one dealerships qualified for recognition by earning an overall score of 90 percent or better on the Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program’s annual Employee Satisfaction Survey. Administered anonymously through the MRAA, the survey asks employees of Certified Dealerships to answer 32 ranking questions about overall satisfaction regarding their unique dealership’s customer relations, employee satisfaction, leadership, management and reputation.
“Earning the acknowledgement as a Great Dealership to Work is no simple task. It means all these dealerships unequivocally invest in their employee’s satisfaction levels to cultivate an environment that is both motivating and morale boosting,” says Liz Keener, MRAA Certification Manager. “This past season produced many unforeseen challenges that required dealership personnel to meet extremely high consumer demands in spite of industry supply shortages and delays.” Of those participating, 21 dealerships qualified to be named a Great Dealership to Work For.
