What works for employees of Cherry Hill Volvo in South Jersey? The attitude of the company’s owner.
Workers at the 51-year-old Volvo dealership told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the company’s president, Judith Krupnick, fosters a feeling of family in the workplace, making a point of meeting employees’ spouses and children, checking in with each one of them regularly and even pitching in to wash cars and do office work when she sees someone needs help.
Cherry Hill Volvo employees who responded to the newspaper’s “Top Workplaces” survey said they feel managers trust them, appreciate their efforts and include them in decision-making.
Krupnick encourages collaboration and said her 68 employees have the authority to do what’s necessary to get their jobs done.
In addition, the boss springs for pizza, sandwiches and snacks twice a month and designates a “birthday” each month—with cake—for employees who are celebrating theirs.
