MRAA Announces 2022 Great Dealerships to Work For

• A record 27 dealers honored at Dealer Week 2022

AUSTIN, TEXAS – December 15 – The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas has named this year’s marine industry Great Dealerships to Work For. The dealerships were honored on December 7, at Dealer Week 2022, the association’s annual conference and expo, in Austin, Texas.

A record 27 dealerships qualified for recognition by earning an overall score of 90 percent or better on the Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program’s annual Employee Satisfaction Survey. Administered anonymously through the MRAA, the survey asks employees of Certified Dealerships to answer 32 ranking questions about overall satisfaction regarding their unique dealership’s customer relations, employee satisfaction, leadership, management and reputation.

After their employees complete the survey, and the dealership receives its 13-page survey report, the whole team meets and discusses what the dealership is doing great and what they could be doing better for their employee culture.

“Our Certified Dealers work hard each year to continue to improve their employee experience by not only surveying their teams and learning more about their work culture, but also by working with their teams to create solutions to issues identified by the survey,” said Liz Keener, MRAA Certification Manager. “Many dealers find the Employee Satisfaction Survey is one of the most beneficial elements of the Certification program, as their team is integral to their success.”
