Oregon’s Capitol Auto Group Dealerships Ranked
#1 and #2 in the Country for Large Dealerships by Automotive News
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Salem, Oregon, (Dec. 12, 2017) – Capitol Auto Group (CAG) dealerships Capitol Chevrolet-Cadillac (#1) and Capitol Toyota (#2) took the two top spots in Automotive News’ 100 Best Dealerships To Work For in the large dealership category. CAG dealerships have been in the top 10 every year since the awards were established in 2012.
Establishing a “Best Company” status is no small feat with competition in both the USA and Canada. CAG continued to dominate this year with Best Dealership overall awards also going to Capitol Subaru (#8), Capitol Chevrolet/Cadillac (#15) and Toyota (#17).
CAG is also family-owned. President Scott Casebeer; Marketing Director Carrie Casebeer and second-generation Alex and Matthew treat employees like an extension of that family. The entire management team places a high priority on employee satisfaction and believes that is why their business is successful.
Sales Director, Arthur Lyter, who has worked with Capitol for 14 years said, “The family atmosphere and opportunity for individuals’ growth within the company really set CAG apart from other dealerships.”
Scott Casebeer sets the tone for the employee-focus. “When our number one focus is on our employees, customer service will be a natural outcome,” he says.
In the award announcement, Automotive News Publisher, Jason Stein wrote, “What these dealerships have in common is the admiration and confidence of their employees.”
Each year, Automotive News joins with Best Companies Group, a research group based in Pennsylvania, to analyze data for these awards. Employees received a confidential questionnaire with 78 statements to rank and two open-ended questions designed to evaluate how they felt about their workplace. They were asked if they experienced enjoyment and saw an opportunity for growth. CAG’s 350 employees ranked the company highly on leadership, benefits and the extra efforts made by the company to individually recognize employees daily.
