Millennial_Customer.jpgWhat do you know about millennials (also known as Gen Y) entering the dealership workforce? Beyond any stereotypical footnotes or general observations that’ve been made about this group of young professionals, do you fully understand the impact that this group has on your dealership’s business?

According to a recent article published by Automotive News, “The percentage of millennials working in dealerships rose to 31 percent from 27 percent a year earlier. Close to half of all new dealership hires in 2014 were millennials.” Nevertheless, “In 2014, the annualized turnover rate in the average car dealership’s sales department was 72 percent, an increase of six percentage points from a year earlier,” says Automotive News.
