CAG Top Gun Award

This year the Continental Automotive Group has started an employee recognition program called the “Top Gun Awards.” The Top Gun Award is designed as an avenue for CAG to recognize, with appreciation and gratitude, dedicated and loyal employees who contribute to its’ success.

“We wanted to start an employee recognition program for some time,” says Will Hardeman, owner of CAG. “We want our employees to know that their efforts don’t go unnoticed.”

Each of the 6 locations: Austin Infiniti, Austin Subaru, First Texas Honda, Mercedes-Benz of Austin, Continental Collision, and Wholesale Parts Direct, select an employee (non-manager) from each department to win this award each year. The Top Gun Awards will be given out each year at the annual company appreciation dinners.

This year our inaugural 34 winners will each receive their name on a Top Gun Award Plaque, a trophy, and an iPad2!

CAG employee comments and votes from Austin Infiniti, Austin Subaru, First Texas Honda, Mercedes-Benz of Austin, Continental Collision Center, and Wholesale Parts Direct are to thank for this award. One of the main reasons CAG won this award is their extensive employee benefits package. Continental Automotive Group is also noted for their “career” possibilities. When other companies have cut back on benefits and laid off staff, the Hardeman’s have stayed true to their mission – taking care of their employees. Today, CAG’s benefits package continues to grow, and there have been no layoffs based on current economic conditions. Read More.
