The 2018 Automotive Management (AM) ‘Best UK Dealerships To Work For’ have recently been announced at an Automotive Management Live Event and two Mitsubishi dealerships were recognised in the winning list of just 11 motor trader dealerships from across the UK.
Livery Dole Mitsubishi based in Exeter and Luscombe Motors from Leeds have been named as winners and they can now proudly display the AM ‘Best UK Dealerships To Work For’ accreditation and commemorative plaque in their showroom.
Pride, rewards, enjoyment and development opportunities are just some of the key elements that were looked at by the 2018 judging panel, with the award-winning dealerships standing out amongst the other worthy contenders.
Hayden Williams, Managing Director, Livery Dole, said: “Being recognised for being a good employer and one of the best dealerships for our staff to work means a great deal to the management team at Livery Dole. Personally I believe that allowing staff to feel valued, being able to contribute and feeling engaged in the business is the key for the future success of the business and happy returning customers. We have and continue to look for ways to make changes to the business and working hours of the team to allow for a better balance of work and personal life. It is my ambition to have a team that although feeling challenged to perform at the best level they can every day, enjoy coming to work and feel proud to work for Livery Dole. The infectious atmosphere created by a team of staff who feel successful and rewarded cannot be underestimated in building the steady continuous momentum needed to face the many challenges of today’s market.”

Robin Luscombe, Managing Director, Luscombe Motors, said: “Winning ‘Best UK Dealerships To Work For’ for the 2nd year in a row really demonstrates the great values and culture the company has. This filters out to customers, who leave wonderful reviews and recommend their friends and relatives. This demonstrates even in the technological world we live in, word of mouth, personal recommendation and above all treating everyone respectfully, kindly, and how you would want to be treated yourself, is still the backbone of not just business but society.”
Tim Rose, Editor of Automotive Management, said: “Congratulations to Luscombe Motors and Livery Dole on their remarkable achievement! The UK’s motor retail industry is high pressured and extremely competitive but full of opportunities for great earnings and career progression. And it is Luscombe Motors and Livery Dole along with the other 2018 AM ‘Best UK Dealerships to Work For’ who play a leading role, by rewarding their staff well, by providing regular training, by helping staff climb the career ladder and by being a decent, responsible, caring employer.”
