LUSCOMBE Motors, which operates Luscombe Mitsubishi, has been named as one of the UK’s Best Dealerships To Work For in a new programme launched by Automotive Management, the UK’s leading automotive retail business publication.

The Leeds-based dealership was one of 15 dealerships to win the accolade in the new initiative, which aims to find and recognise the best places to work in the franchised dealer sector.

Run in conjunction with Best Companies Group, that produces similar studies in other industries, AM’s Best Dealerships To Work For programme celebrates those franchised dealers who have proven that they know what it takes to create an environment where people love to come to work. The aim of the programme is to raise the bar among industry employers, creating excellence and employee engagement that will attract talented people for years to come.

Luscombe Motors was recognised for providing an outstanding workplace environment that engages its staff and allows them to flourish. The company is committed to ensuring its employees are motivated and happy through a range of benefits. Notably, employees receive a share in the company profits and they are kept up-to-speed on dealership performance by twice-weekly text updates from the managing director, which thank them for their efforts.

Robin Luscombe, Managing Director, said: “I am very proud to be one of only 15 car dealerships in the UK to qualify for Best UK Dealerships To Work For at AM Live! It means a lot to me and everyone who has been part of the last amazing seven years. Massive thanks to a great team in Leeds and everyone who has helped and supported us on the way.”

AM Editor-in-Chief Stephen Briers said: “Employee engagement is an essential ingredient for a successful business. No company, large or small, can win over the long run without a workforce that is motivated and energised, and which understands and believes in the company’s mission. All of our Best Dealerships have achieved this.”
