George Arrants, Vice President, ASE Education Foundation will present “What Makes Technicians Leave? and How to Stop Them” at the 2024 ADS Convention in Grapevine, Texas

The Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS) has announced a new speaker for the 2024 ADS International Convention, George Arrants. Arrants will present “What Makes Technicians Leave? And How to Stop Them” at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center. The convention runs from January 21-22, 2024 immediately preceding Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) and features the latest industry education sessions as well as numerous networking opportunities.

When an ADS service member has a quality technician leave, it creates a major void that is difficult to fill. This session will address the challenges of retention and recruitment of technicians. ASE Foundation’s Arrants will share his insights into what really motivates technicians to leave employers. It’s more than just pay. He will offer practical and actionable tips on how ADS members can strengthen relationships with existing technicians and create relationships with technical schools to supplement their workforce effectively.
