AuSM’s Best Auctions to Work For, which is sponsored by CARS Recon, is a free workplace study for the auto auction industry that recognizes the best auto auctions to work for on an unranked basis.
It is designed and intended for individual auction locations — not corporate or headquarter offices. It is absolutely free for these individual auctions to participate.
Winners are recognized both in this edition of AuSM and at the National Remarketing Conference/NAAA Convention during Used Car Week
AuSM, teaming with the Best Companies Group (BCG) in Pennsylvania, underwrites the study. The study is managed by BCG, and the data is analyzed 100 percent by the staff at BCG.
Best Companies Group directly administers all surveys and manages and analyzes all data and information that is gathered.
The Best Companies Group assesses the data from the group of auctions choosing to participate and develops metrics and standards based on that data to determine which auctions are named to the list of Best Auto Auctions to Work For. Thank you to all who participated this year, and congratulations to those recognized in this year’s study.
And now, without further, ado, the 2017 Best Auto Auctions to Work For:
Auctions in Motion
DAA of Chattanooga
KCI Kansas City
Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction
Manheim Dallas- Fort Worth
Manheim Keystone PA
Manheim St Pete
Best of the Rest:
While their overall scores were just shy of the high mark required to be included in the Best Auto Auctions to Work For, they represent the up-and-coming, and we expect to see many of the following on next year’s Best Auto Auctions to Work For list:
DAA of Huntsville
DAA of Memphis
DAA of Mobile
DAA of Murfreesboro
Texas Lone Star Auto Auction
Stay tuned for the Sept. 15 print and digital issues of AuSM, which includes Q&As with the respective general managers of the winning auctions, photos from the honorees and in-depth workplace survey data from the Best Companies Group.
Editor’s Note: ADESA auctions did not participate in the 2017 Best Auto Auctions to Work For Study. To see the company’s auctions that earned recognition last year, reference the Sept. 15, 2016 issue of AuSM.
