Axalta Services launches a new body shop recruitment program

Axalta Coating Systems is offering nationally an I-CAR approved recruiting, hiring and staff training course designed for owners and managers to develop a strategy to attract and sustain high quality candidates to a body shop.

Participants will walk away with an in-depth understanding of how to improve body shop recruitment and hiring practices that will not only help to improve business efficiencies and productivity but will ultimately translate into happier staff and a sustainable business.

One bad hire is enough to destroy a small business, so managers/shop owners need to get it right the first time. Taking time to create a plan to recruit, hire and train the right candidate will lead to greater returns on investment. New blood that naturally fits in with a body shop’s team and company culture will create greater opportunities for business sustainability. Not only is a stronger skill set on offer but if trained right, the new candidate will deliver the highest level of service and product to customers time after time.  Hiring the right candidate means potential savings in time with the bonus of improved productivity and profitability.

The I-CAR certified course is taught using a highly interactive guided learning model to keep attendees engaged in the learning process. Numerous concepts will be available, including:

  • Identifying the task or functions critical to success
  • Reviewing the owner/manager’s goals that will lead to long-term success
  • Improving the ability to recruit, interview, and hire employees.
  • Creating an on-boarding and mentoring program for employees.
  • How to train, coach and conduct performance reviews

Axalta’s Training Alliance with I-CAR means that the upon completion of the recruitment course an attendee will be awarded credit hours that can be applied towards the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals, Platinum Individual designations, or be used to meet role‑relevant annual training requirements. The training dates for Recruiting, Hiring and Training Staff in 2018 are:

  • QLD – 13 June
  • SA – 20 June
  • NSW – 18 July
  • VIC – 25 July
  • WA – 8 August
