Infographic: 6 keys to building a strong carwash team

A solid “farm system” of talent is priceless.

In Professional Carwashing & Detailing’s upcoming August issue article titled, “Building your bench strength” by contributor Chris Brown, Brown discusses how best to recruit members for your carwash team with six keys.

In the article, Brown cites some foreboding statistics. “According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the official unemployment rate in the country is, at the time of writing this article, a tight 4.3 percent — the lowest it has been in 16 years. However, this statistic is counter-balanced by a simultaneously decreasing Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR) — the percentage of people who can work and are working — which is now down to a paltry 62.7 percent. The LFPR has not consistently been this low since the inflation-driven and gas-starved economies of the late 1970s.”

However, Brown says that there is hope. “The good news is that getting good at finding the right employees is one of the few areas in which a business — any business — can differentiate itself from its competition. To do so, however, takes more than simply posting a ‘Help Wanted’ sign in the window and hoping for the best. What is required is a strategy, a system and skills to keep your prospective employee pipeline full.”

So, how can you find and secure the best employees for your carwash? PC&D created the below infographic highlighting the six keys Brown claims are instrumental to building a strong carwash team. Be sure to read the entirety of this article when it is published.
