RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Get Spiffy, the Triangle-based on-demand car care company has unveiled a new strategic vision  focusing on the development of automotive technicians.

Spiffy’s CEO, serial entrepreneur and investor Scot Wingo, shared his inspiration on Thursday.

“As we talk to our technicians, we’re finding the automotive industry is failing to recognize their value. No service happens without the technician – full stop. At Spiffy, we are on a mission to change that lack of recognition, and our vision is to be the employer of choice in the automotive services industry.”

In order to achieve this, Spiffy plans to improve focus on employee professional development and strategic hiring. Technicians will be hired as W2 employees, rather than the more common 1099 contractor positions. The company believes this will help recruit and retain top talent, and set them apart as a provider of top-quality technicians. Spiffy also offers competitive pay, a comprehensive benefits package, stock options, and company-sponsored training and certifications.

To build on this program of talent management for Spiffy, the company announced the promotion of Nicole Haight from VP of Human Resources to a new role as Chief People Officer. The company has also added Sheri Peck as head of Talent Acquisition.

“Our mission is clear,” said Haight in the press release. “Attract, develop, and retain the industry’s best talent. We are at the forefront of a paradigm shift in the automotive industry, and I am excited to work with Sheri and our team to build an empowering and rewarding environment.”

Technician Roles, among others, are available. Those interested can learn more and apply on the Spiffy Careers page.
