The dealership also offers employees referral incentives. "If they know someone that wants a job, they get incentives the longer the new hire stays on with us," Clark said.
The company offers 360-degree performance reviews to all employees annually.
Dorsey also supports further training for all of its employees, Clark said.
"All of our technicians are TIA certified; retread employees are encouraged to certify on all equipment; we send our alignment techs to Hunter training; and if there is an Excel masterclass that is beneficial to our admin staff, we make sure they are able to attend."
Employees are eligible to enroll in Dorsey's health care plan after 30 days of employment. The company also offers "better you" health programs, Clark said, that support health goals, such as quitting smoking or losing weight.
Dorsey's people-focused culture doesn't stop at the shop. The company participates in several community-oriented events and organizations, including Make-A-Wish and non-profit Savannah AMBUCS (American Business Club) Inc.
"Many of our employees coach sports teams and we are always willing to lend a hand," Clark said. "Our neighboring community is sponsoring a back-to-school bash to give needy families the necessary assistance getting school supplies."
Dorsey owes its success to two groups of people.
"We are grateful for our employees, new and old. We are also grateful for our loyal customer base. We would not be here without either of them and we cannot wait to see what our new growth brings us," she said.
