What can I post?
Cat videos? Everyone likes cat's right? Jokes? The only trouble with that is that my wife Allie and my two year old Sawyer are the only ones that seem to think that I'm funny. I've gone to the "experts" and the service that we use to run our webpage has given me a number of suggestions, news articles and the like. I don't know if that's the answer either though, because frankly, the articles aren't really that interesting! I'm sure that some are good though, but I'll do my best to keep from copying and pasting article after article.
I could post You Tube videos of my favorite routines from this season's "So You Think You Can Dance", but the rest of the staff will heckle me, so that's out.
I'm for sure not going use this forum as a way to promote sales or events; we do tons of that in other places! Perhaps we can just talk about "interests" and "goings-on". Failing that, cat videos.....
Anyway, we'll see how it evolves?
Here's some neat stuff...
We have been spending lots of time here working on aggregate dealership health and happiness. We figure, that a healthier dealership is a happier dealership and we all know that a happier dealership will be better for our guests. We are a pretty happy bunch here already, but we want to take it to the next level!
Our first thought was to play Bob Marley over
the intercom, but after 12 hours of it, the accounting staff wanted something
different. Plan "B" then?
A few weeks ago we completed the first ever Victoria Hyundai Health and Happiness survey. We discovered some things that the average car dealership doesn't know about itself? Sheez, self discovery can be scary!
On average, your Victoria Hyundai team member is 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. Correlating this versus the BMI index, Health Canada puts us as "slightly overweight". On finding this out, we quickly agreed to rename the term "overweight" to "huggable", and then we quickly threw out every scale in the dealership and agreed to not ever do a survey again (just kidding, we'll do the survey again once we get fit).
Also, 88% of us report feeling "sometimes stressed out" at work. This is somewhat predictable, as car dealerships are very "target driven" organizations and our targets get bigger and bigger every month!
These two facts though were a wake-up call, as put together they are a deadly mix. We need to tackle this fast!
Some more stuff?
On average, we eat 1.6 servings of fruit and
vegetables a day, get 6.9 hours of sleep and watch 1 hour of
TV. As a whole, we get a fair bit of vigorous exercise (120
minutes a week), but if you take Luis our resident fitness guru and detail
department lead hand out of the equation, that number drops to 105 minutes.
What are we going to do about it? Well that's still a work in progress, but together we are going to get better! Stay tuned for more news here! If you have any experience in this area, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com with ideas!
