Baldwin Subaru Celebrates being Named Top Workplaces of 2023
We are proud to announce that Baldwin Subaru has been named a Top Workplace of 2023 by Nola.com and the Times-Picayune! The award criteria is based on an anonymous survey that was sent out to all of our employees to gather feedback on our company's culture, management, and the overall happiness of our employees. It's safe to say that we truly couldn't have done it without them!
Baldwin Motors was established in 1950 with a focus on putting our clients, employees, and community above all else. With an approach that goes beyond the industry standard, we have been able to remain successful in providing an extraordinary experience at every interaction. Our family-focused atmosphere and community-centric ideals have kept our family-owned and operated dealership running strong for 3 generations.
Baldwin Subaru believes that a positive company culture can have a significant impact on employee engagement, productivity, and overall success. First and foremost, we know that employees are the backbone of any organization. It's important to invest in employees and create an environment that fosters their growth and development. We do this by offering training and development opportunities, providing a positive work-life balance, and recognizing and rewarding employee contributions.
When employees feel valued and supported, they are more likely to be motivated and engaged in their work. This can lead to increased productivity, higher-quality work, and better customer service. In today's job market, we recognize that employees are looking for more than just a paycheck. They want to work for a company that aligns with their values and provides a positive work environment.
Our purpose is to provide support - support to our community, our team, and our customers. We don't sell cars; we support and guide our customers through the purchase process and ownership of their vehicles.
Our vision is to consistently exceed expectations, every time, with unparalleled hospitality and to be one of our community's most valued resources.
Our mission is to be a resource for our guests, community, and team by providing an extraordinary experience at every interaction, giving support however we can, and treating everyone who encounters us like a member of the Baldwin Motors family.
Our core company values are as followed:
Family: Family stands right at the core of our values as a company, second only to God. We believe family should always come before work and we continuously reinforce this core value within our team by encouraging a healthy work-life balance and offering generous parental leave programs and more holiday time off than most others in our industry.
Community: Baldwin Motors owes everything to our community. We could not have remained in business since 1950 without the support of our community, so giving back is a top priority. A percentage of every sale is put back into our community and our team frequently volunteers at community events.
Integrity: We, at Baldwin Motors, hold ourselves to a higher standard. We value doing what is right over what is easy, or even what may be more profitable. This helps us reinforce our values of putting our community and family first.
We're more than a car dealership. Since opening our doors in 1950, we've stood firm in the motto, "we won't sell you a car, we'll help you buy one." Like the way we support our clients in their purchasing and servicing journey, we also support our team in their employment and life journeys. Since no two team members are alike, we make a point to cater to the needs of each. For one person that may look like supporting their daughter's school play; for another, it may be covering adoption fees for their rescue pup or sending them to courses in an area they're interested in growing towards.
We firmly believe in hiring for attitude, training for skill, and giving opportunities to applicants and team members who may otherwise be overlooked for certain positions in our industry. This helps us keep fresh perspectives on our teams and provide a better experience to our guests and our community. Our team takes pride in what we do in and outside of the office and we believe it's important to enjoy your time at work. If you stop by, you may catch us having a company-wide cornhole tournament, enjoying afternoon sweets in the sales department, showing off crazy socks in Service, or spoiling a dog with treats and toys in the customer lounge.
Benefits: We offer parental leave for BOTH parents, an environment that puts family first, generous IRA matching, health, dental, and vision insurance (we pay half of your health coverage!), vehicle and service discounts, paid vacation, company crawfish boil and BBQs, and more!
