Symposium – Caregivers and the Workplace

There is a symposium being planned on a discussion about caregivers and the workplace and how it impacts the balance between personal and professional. Even though it effects men and women-the largest percentage are women who are often forced to make decisions – taking on the caregiver role and stepping out of career paths or lucrative positions to do so.

LBCCC Members – Are you a company that does have best practices vis a vis families/caregivers who would be interested in serving on the panel discussion at the forum? This could be a great opportunity for visability!

If so, please contact Nancy Morell directly at npmorrill@comcast.net

Between 2013 and 2016, over 240 automotive brands are being redesigned or reintroduced using advanced materials and technology making this new generation of vehicles both lighter and safer. Most newsworthy has been the radically redesigned 2015 Ford F150, built with innovative, high-strength, military grade aluminum alloy. Hand in hand with the new vehicle designs comes the challenge for you, the consumer to identify which collision repairers have the technical capability to properly and safely repair your second most valuable investment; your vehicle. The decision not to investigate can have life-threatening consequences.

Assured Performance Collision Care, a non-profit consumer advocacy organization, is working with Automakers such as Ford, FCA, Hyundai, and GM to assist consumers in this critical process by Certifying body shops that maintain the right tools, equipment, training, and facility modification necessary to repair the participating automaker brand vehicles back to the manufacturer’s specifications. These shops are also officially recognized by the Automakers and carry special credentials. These shops are listed on consumer-facing shop locator websites and inside of new smart apps now available.

Rob’s Automotive & Collision, a local business is now part of the exclusive advanced capable repair network of Certified Collision Care Provider.™ The shops that receive the Certification include only best-in-class collision repair businesses that have passed a rigorous inspection and evaluation process essential to help ensure a proper and safe repair of the new generation of advanced vehicles. With the official Certification of Rob’s Automotive & Collision service is now available in the Bristol area, you can reach them at (215) 826 9200.
Collision Care is distinguished from the experience and service provided by body shops of yesteryear through the advanced collision repair capability and service experience delivered by the best in class shops receiving certification. Less than 5 percent of body shops across the nation are able to meet these stringent requirements.

Auto manufacturers want to ensure that consumers have the option of Certified Collision Repair wherever they live, work, or travel. Based upon the new technology and advanced materials of today’s vehicles, now more than ever, a proper repair is critical to the value and safety of the vehicle.

“Consumers need the confidence and peace of mind to know their vehicle is repaired by a shop that has what it takes to ensure the vehicle safety. Rob’s Automotive & Collision is officially recognized as a Collision Care Provider™,” said Scott Biggs, CEO of Assured Performance Collision Care. “They represent the standard by which all other body shops are measured.”

About Assured Performance Collision Care™: Assured Performance Collision Care™ is a non-profit consumer advocacy organization specializing in the automotive collision repair market segment. Assured Performance works with the top automakers to identify, audit and promote collision repair providers that meet best-in-class business standards and the manufacturer’s requirements. Consumers can go to: www.CollisionCare.org to find a list of Certified Collision repair providers.
