Celebrating Our First Year in the Automotive Aftermarket 🎉🚗

Promotive just closed out our first official year (or, technically, 9 months) of business in the automotive aftermarket. What started out as a mission to connect talented automotive professionals with industry-leading repair shops has expanded into so much more.

 

As we wrap up our numbers for 2023 and prepare for an even more exciting 2024, join us in celebrating these achievements:

 

  • In 2023, we placed just under 100 talented candidates in various positions throughout the industry.
  • Our candidate to shop match-making efforts expanded across the United States, penetrating approximately 40% of the US market.
  • Promotive candidates earn an average annual salary that is 20% higher than the industry average for automotive technicians.
  • Putting that into cumulative numbers, these guys (and gals) earn a collective salary of approximately $4.5 million in total. Talk about fueling the aftermarket! ⛽🤑
  • Moreover, our superstar recruiting and account management teams helped candidates negotiate their salary/benefits by more than 15%. This sets them on a path for greater success and fulfillment in their careers.
  • A low starting salary is a contributing factor to the technician shortage. So, starting your techs at a competitive wage means higher employee retention for hiring shops. Be sure to look out for our retention numbers at the end of 2024 because, as of now, they are looking pretty good!
  • Promotive’s shop count is growing with unstoppable momentum, at an average of 48% month over month.
  • These milestones wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible support and partnership of the 120+ shops (and more than 70 shop owners) that we’re honored to call our customers.

Why Promotive?

We go beyond the job boards to find technicians who aren’t posting their resumes online. We proactively search the marketplace for quality automotive talent. Our employee referral program also enables us to secure the best candidates nationwide.

 

“Promotive helped us source two of our latest technicians – and they truly are keepers! It has been tough to find highly-skilled technicians in the area who are actively searching for jobs. Promotive was able to help us find qualified talent, schedule interviews with them, and helped us land some of the best techs in the area. Our customers are much happier as well knowing their cars are in the right hands with us. Our techs’ range of knowledge and expertise, as well as exceptional customer service, have helped increase sales and trust with our customers immensely since coming on board. I will be coming back again and again to Promotive to help us source more talent as our shop continues to grow. If you are looking for a sign to make the next move for your business, this is it.”   Michelle T. – Shop Owner at Euro Clinic
