For the second year in a row, The Niello Company has been recognized by Automotive News in their annual look at the Best Dealerships To Work For in North America. “The recognition begins with this list of the top 100 places to work – a summary that honors new-car dealerships in the United States and Canada that have excelled in creating a high-quality work environment.” – Jason Stien, Automotive News Publisher.
Out of over 22,000 dealerships in the nation, and out of only eight chosen to represent California, The Niello Company was recognized as having four of the 100 best dealerships to work for in North America, including Niello Audi, under the leadership of Matt Phelan, Niello BMW Elk Grove, under the leadership of Matt Ryan, Land Rover Rocklin, under the leadership of Eric Niello, and Niello Porsche, under the leadership of Don Faerber. On October 17th, 2013, Automotive News will celebrate the 2013 Best Dealerships to Work For program to recognize each of the 100 best dealerships, and to announce the top ten.
Managed by the Best Companies Group, the survey and recognition program was established to find and recognize the best employers in the automotive dealership industry. The Niello Company is proud to have four of its dealerships in this program for two years running.
A special congratulation is in order for Land Rover Rocklin and Niello Porsche. This is the second year for both dealerships making it onto the list. Last year, in the inaugural event, ten dealerships were chosen to represent California, with The Niello Company having four dealerships in the top 100, including Niello Volkswagen, Land Rover / Jaguar Sacramento, and the aforementioned Land Rover Rocklin and Niello Porsche. Out of this list of 100, the top ten dealerships in North America were revealed in an awards ceremony in Chicago in October 2012. The #8 spot was held by none other than Niello Porsche, marking Niello Porsche as the top Porsche dealership in the country.
Last year, Rick Niello was asked to speak about practices and policies that helped make The Niello Company one of the great places to work, as well as participate on a panel discussing such work ethic.
“We are in the people business,” Rick Niello often proclaims. Nationally-recognized awards like these exemplify that statement, as does The Niello Company mission statement: We are committed to providing distinctive automotive products and exceptional service while treating our customers and employees with unyielding integrity, as well as The Niello Company vision: To be Northern California’s leading automobile dealer for the products we represent. On a daily basis, employees uphold the following core values:
- We are a team
- We respect each other
- We encourage self-improvement
- We hold high expectations
- We embrace change
- We enthusiastically value our customer
- We support our community
The Niello Company philosophy positively impacts the community through employees and customers alike. Upholding such values is the reason why The Niello Company is such a great place to work, and likewise a great place to buy a car, and the reason many of its dealerships continue to rank among the top 100 in North America.
