The world of recruiting is changing quickly. Lonski and Associates is increasing our reach and our overall business each and every month.

What he has found is that many clients have not even had the thought of using a recruiter to help their business simply because they are not educated on the value we can bring to their business. Many marine industry builders, OEMs and suppliers are utilizing our services now and in almost every case once they start they are very willing to continue to develop the relationship and bring us in to the fold, viewing us as a very valuable partner.

Lonski finds dealers in search of top talent Henry Lonski, founder of his namesake recruiting firm Lonski and Associates, LLC, takes phone calls and emails daily from dealers looking for upgrades in talent. In fact, it’s his job, and the demand for finding quality personnel at both dealerships and other industry companies is growing so fast that Lonski has had to make additional hires to his own staff.

Has your dealership been seeking qualified candidates for open employment positions, only to find a barren field of prospects? If so, you’re not alone. As dealership job openings continue to rise, the number of qualified job candidates remains stagnant, leading to headaches for dealerships across the country. For Lonski and Associates, LLC, a recruiting and placement firm with deep connections to a number of powersports dealers and OEMs throughout the industry, the first part of each new year brings with it a spike in demand for jobs.
“This is the third consecutive year where the demand is just over the top,” Henry Lonski, who founded the firm in 2005, told Powersports Business in a January interview. From service technicians to sales managers, there is plenty of demand for all positions across the industry. This is nothing new compared to recent trends. However, as dealers are increasingly struggling to find ideal candidates, job openings are piling up.
Lonski and his company of eight headhunters are currently working to fill over 130 open positions across the motorcycle, powerpsorts and marine segments. As of Q1 2018, the openings were evenly split among all three segments. “And it’s coast to coast. The first quarter of 2018 was the largest numbers of openings we’ve seen in three years. All eight recruiters have full plates. It’s not the number of jobs, it’s the number of qualified people for those jobs. I’m very positive looking forward.” Of course, that figure does not contain the large number of jobs that are open, but aren’t being publicly advertised due to the future termination of a current employee in that opening.
