A third of the top performing car dealers on Auto Trader have never hired women to work within their sales team, according to new research commissioned by the online classified website.

According to MotorTrader.com, a survey of 70 dealers revealed that gender diversity remains a significant issue within the car dealer sector, with less than a quarter currently hiring a woman for their sales team and a third having never hired a woman.

The report argues that having greater gender diversity in the workplace can boost the performance of staff, heighten engagement, help to grow reputation, increase employee retention and even help to provide a greater variety of perspectives when it comes to planning a company’s future.
