At WrenchWay, we understand that in order to solve the technician shortage, we need to be continually promoting and improving technician careers. And, if we’re being honest, there are some much needed changes that need to happen in the automotive, diesel, and collision industries in order to do so.

Each month, we will be sharing content, hosting events, and working with our clients to help improve, elevate, and promote technician careers. Not only do we want to help shops improve, but we also want to celebrate and highlight the shops who are doing these things well already.

WrenchWay’s May Topic of the Month: Technician Onboarding

Having a solid onboarding process for new technicians is critical to their long-term success at the shop. However, studies have shown that 88% of organizations don’t onboard well (Gallup).

  • Roundtable – We brought together three experts to talk about how they onboard new technicians. Watch the Recording
