2023-11SpecialPresentationTechnicianCrisis:   [ppt show]: The Technician Crisis: Tapping into the Technician’s Perspective – This will not be the typical
presentation on the technician crisis, simply outlining the problem of not enough new technicians entering a field already burdened by high turnover. This presentation will dig deeper into how the collision industry stacks up against other automotive verticals, and if there are lessons to be learned directly from the technicians on how we can shift attention to solutions that draw in and retain talent. With over 30 years of globally recognized research and benchmarking experience, research firm Ducker Carlisle will share their expertise in the technician space, detailing the results from a recent collision technician survey orchestrated by I-CAR and SCRS. The presentation will dig into the key drivers of collision technician satisfaction, their career goals and needs, and explain how those results compare with data collected from past technician surveys in other automotive sectors.

Everyone can access these free resources and all can become champions of the technician workforce. Too many don’t know that TechForce Foundation exists. We don’t need to start from scratch.

2022-11InsurerReportCard:  [John Yoswick] Shops’ view of insurers isn’t “all about the money” – Every year, shops use CRASH Network’s “Insurer Report Card” to assign a grade to the insurance companies they work with based on each company’s claims handling practices.
