Mr. Blue said, “At the indiGO Auto Group, we’ve built a culture which invites our team to participate with ownership in community, creative customer engagement, company conversations, and creative ways to motivate one another.”
In addition to the impressive Automotive News accolade, indiGO has earned both global and national awards, including Porsche’s highest honor of being recognized as a four-time Porsche Premier Dealer in 2015. Mr. Blue has cultivated a progressive Porsche culture rooted in the heritage of the brand, maintaining authenticity and uniqueness, exceeding customer expectations, and activating customer ownership. He is steadfastly expanding his Porsche-centric philosophy with the acquisition of four Porsche franchises in just five short years in three U.S. markets including Houston, TX, Rancho Mirage, CA, and St. Louis, MO. With that comes a commitment to creating a successful environment for all indiGO Auto Group employees.
“We spend as much, or more, time in the workplace as we do in our homes; making our environments stimulating and inspiring translates into retention and performance. Creating unique and authentic environments and experiences for our team results in business success and activating customer ownership,” added Blue.
The 100 dealerships were selected by Best Companies Group, which screened extensive surveys filled out by 62,000 employees of U.S. and Canadian stores that applied for the distinction. Porsche of North Houston employees completed a detailed “Employee Engagement & Satisfaction” survey earlier this year that focused on 8 Core Focus Areas: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement.
Amongst Blue’s many corporate wide employee-centric initiatives, the company provides: lunch to all employees every Saturday to foster relationships and to create fellowship and camaraderie among the staff; awards trips to teams when they reach company goals, including a recent all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas; gifts for every employee including custom indiGO Nike Gore-Tex jackets; awards to employees every month celebrating achievements and much more.
Mr. Blue added, “Every month the company awards a team member who best embodies the company philosophies. At the holiday party, at year end, the team member who best elected these ideals for the year is awarded $5,000.00.”
The indiGO Auto Group family adheres to the following five organizational certainties:
* We prioritize continuous improvement
* We passionately honor the heritage of the brands we represent
* We always maintain a consciousness for uniqueness and authenticity
