Best of Belron® Kicks Off in Paris
June 9, 2010
Twenty-seven Belron technicians from around the world are competing
this week in Paris in the companys international Best of Belron
competition. The winner of the competition will take home a cash
prize of a years salary. The event began today.
The competition has several new facets this year, including the
ability for technicians to bring a personal coach to the competition,
with whom he can consult as necessary during the competition for
up to two minutes during each portion of the competition. Likewise,
Belron has added a Training on the Job element, so that
after each challenge, both the technician and his coach will be
able to listen to the quality judges comments as he inspects
the technicians work.
To qualify for the event, each finalist has had to win his own
country competition. Judging is based on a windshield installation,
windshield repair, sidelite replacement, and communication with
the customer throughout. Each technician also must complete a detailed
questionnaire covering every aspect of his job, from health and
safety, working methods to customer care.
The event is being held at Grande Halle de la Villette and continues
tomorrow. Mark Jackson of Columbus, Ohio, is representing the United
States in the competition. (CLICK
