The bottom line is that according to your employees you -- as employers 95%. Why that number represents new bragging rights for some of the best auto dealerships in the US. That's next. Welcome on this Friday. I'm -- Snyder and for Tom -- back. A question for you dealers out there ever wonder what employers are saying about your when your not around how engaged are they really. Apparently. Quite a bit. While national engagement studies have revealed that only 41%. Of employees are considered gates. That percentage for you the group of winners is 95%. Yes. Peter Burke is president and co-founder of the research firm best companies group. Over the past year and a half Automotive News has worked with best companies to identify which dealerships are the best to work for. On Wednesday the top 100 stores were saluted at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago. That honor is mostly based on a lengthy survey of employees. And the conclusion. Dealers are doing better than their peers in other industries. This group of the top 100. Is a really really strong group of employers in fact we managed forty -- so these programs around the country. And the engagement scores for the top 100 best dealerships to work for it is the strongest group. Best places to work that we had. The survey covers topics like corporate culture communications trust and getting along with the boss. And then it really gets interest. Employees willingness to give extra effort on behalf of the organization or how long they've played this day with the organization. -- those types of questions we're really couldn't drill down and find out how connected these employees are there players. But wire dealers scoring so high. I'm not really sure why I think beat the employers in this particular industry have really focused. Creating environments. Where trust him. And respect permeate the culture. And he says there were so many applicants some excellent work places didn't even make the list that top 100 really the cream of the crop and it. Do you have a theory send us a direct message on Twitter at auto news TV. Auto supply giant magna says infinity is chosen handle some -- of a future premium compact car itself. In May Canada's magna and Infiniti announced a deal to have magna assemble the car in Austria. Consumer reports has a new auto testing director. Former GM engineer Jake Fisher replaces David Champion who left in August to rejoin Nissan. And Lincoln. Formerly opening its new design studio in Dearborn Michigan the brand's first dedicated designs that are in four decades. And speaking of the world of MK's season MK US's. Here's Automotive News executive editor -- -- Do you ever get the feeling that the auto industry is turning into a great big cattle alphabet soup. For one thing more and more vehicle lanes there alphanumeric contractions or worse yet just a handful letters. I'm with the judges for the North American car and truck of the year and this year are shortlist includes. The Cadillac ATF's. The Lincoln and Khazei. -- on FRS Subaru BRZ. Acura RD XB MWX one. Infiniti JX 35. And Mazda CX five. For another thing it's all the rage for corporate titles to get shorthand designations like. CEO for Chief Executive Officer and see all all for chief operating officer. Now we have see them all for chief marketing officer. C all for chief information officer CT all for chief technology officer and -- at all for chief financial officer. Look I understand the allure of being CF fault instead of just had been counter. But when it comes to alphabet soup. Too many chiefs. Spoiled -- I'm Edward lap and that's IC. Thanks dead. And that's our time for today. Comes back on Monday have a great weekend we'll see you all back here. Then.
