Audi Celebrates Successful Hiring Program for Veterans
Audi Santa Barbara celebrates 200th national hire within the Veterans to Technicians program sponsored by Audi.
Audi Santa Barbara is a proud supporter of its community, both local and national. As part of Santa Barbara Auto Group, the team at Audi Santa Barbara participates in various fundraisers, sponsorships, and service opportunities throughout the year. Additionally, Audi Santa Barbara proudly supports national efforts made on behalf of the Audi brand as well such as the Veterans to Technicians program which matches former military personnel with jobs as Audi service technicians.
Veterans to Technicians Hiring Program
For Audi employees, this is a unique service because it does more than “give back” to the community, it brings the community in to build one another up together. The Veterans to Technicians program acknowledges the unique skillset military veterans have following their service and encourages them to put those skills to use in a positive new way within their community. Participants are screened and trained by Audi to become Audi certified technicians. For two years the program has worked to match veterans with the right job within Audi’s growing network of dealerships across the country.
200th Hire Marks Important Milestone
Fittingly, Audi celebrated the 200th hire within the Veterans to Technicians program during Independence week this July. This is a substantial milestone because the program focuses on quality over quantity. Each participant is carefully screened, trained, and placed to provide the best fit and benefit for both the dealership and the veteran – setting each other up for success. To have accomplished this with 200 individuals marks a substantial success.
Participating dealerships have reported that participants in the program are a huge asset because they bring a high degree of technical competence and exceptional work ethics including discipline, maturity, quality control, and detail-oriented performance.
Veterans have been placed in Audi dealerships across the country, some hiring as many as 10 individuals through the program. In return, the individuals placed within Audi are pleased to be part of a company that values innovation and encourages employees to be creative problem-solvers. Audi also offers a rewarding career path for those interested in a long-term growth experience within the industry.
As a member of the Santa Barbara community, Audi Santa Barbara understands and appreciates the immense service veterans provide for our country and is eager to support and recognize these outstanding individuals.
