Elite Body Shop Solutions Announces Tech Shortage Webinar

“Talent Shortage! What Can Be Done?” will feature Dave Luehr along with Erick Bickett of Fix Auto USA and the Collision Career Institute and Amber Ritter, COO of the Collision Career Institute.

Dave Luehr’s Elite Body Shop Solutions has announced the next installment in the free Elite Webinar Series.

“Talent Shortage! What Can Be Done?” will feature Dave Luehr along with Erick Bickett of Fix Auto USA and the Collision Career Institute and Amber Ritter, COO of the Collision Career Institute. The webinar will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 1 p.m. Central.

Available talent has been in decline for decades in the collision repair industry but is now at a crisis level. Luehr recently took on a chairman position with the Collision Industry Conference’s Talent Pool Committee to address the problem. During August’s Free Elite Webinar, he is teaming up with Bickett and Ritter to share what they have learned about the talent shortage and what shops can do about it.

“It’s time we all do our part to correct this problem, but I feel like much of the industry doesn’t know exactly how to correct it,” said Luehr. “Erick, Amber and I plan on shedding some incredibly valuable light on what is keeping people away from the collision industry and what collision repairers can do to be a part of the solution.”

Luehr, Bickett and Ritter will be discussing topics such as:

  • What is causing the shortage?
  • What are the barriers to solving it?
  • What the industry can do to make itself an attractive trade
  • What shops can do to attract more talent
  • Working with schools
  • Apprenticeship programs
