Auto/Mate's Director of Human Resources, Dave Druzynski, to Present at MTADA 100th Anniversary Convention


ALBANY, N.Y. – August 4th, 2014 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems ( today announced that Dave Druzynski, Director of Human Resources at Auto/Mate, will present "How to Avoid the Costs of a Bad Hire" at the upcoming 2014 Montana Auto Dealers Association (MTADA) 100th Anniversary Convention in Helena, Montana. Druzynski's presentation is designed to help dealers understand the true costs associated with poor hiring decisions, and to create a hiring process to aid dealers in hiring the right person for every position, every time.

"I've interviewed literally hundreds of former dealership employees, so I am very familiar with the hiring practices and common mistakes made by many dealers," said Druzynski. "Hiring the wrong person can be an expensive mistake, with costs far beyond the 'obvious' ones associated with lost pay, COBRA, unemployment insurance and more. In my session I will go over all these 'hidden' costs that can add up literally into the tens of thousands of dollars."

Druzynski will also present the following to the MTADA's dealer audience:

1) The most common mistakes made by dealers during the interviewing process

2) The "hidden costs" of a bad hire; i.e. lost vehicle sales, future referrals lost from loyal customers, lost team productivity because of bad morale, and more.

3) Interviewing techniques that will identify red flags and ensure that a candidate's resume accurately reflects their experience and achievements

4) How to assess skills and personality to ensure that a candidate is a good match for the job description.

5) How to properly check references.

Druzynski has earned the prestigious distinction as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and is a member of the senior management team at Auto/Mate Dealership Systems. He provides strategic human resources planning in the areas of talent management, employee engagement, leadership development, benefits and compensation and legal and regulatory compliance.

Druzynski is scheduled to present at the MTADA's Annual Convention at the Great Northern Best Western in Helena, Montana on Tuesday, August 12th at 9 a.m. MST. For more information, visit
