• Shirk on a change made in response to staff request: "One of our employees suggested we add a couple of water filtration stations in the dealership instead of buying water bottles for our customers. We still provide our clients with water bottles, by request only. We have considerably reduced our cost and the waste of plastic bottles. The employee was recognized at one of our employee appreciation gatherings."
