Going once, going twice… CarGurus’ virtual auction in support of automotive charity Ben ends this week
Last week at Navigate, CarGurus’ second annual automotive conference, we launched a virtual auction to raise money for Ben. At the heart of our partnership with Ben is a shared desire to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing challenges in the automotive industry, and to provide resources to help people manage through the trying times the industry faces in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For car dealers, COVID-19 has brought on the challenge and stress of keeping business going while navigating a new normal. That kind of challenge can take a toll on a person’s mental health and wellbeing, which is why we’ve partnered with Ben, a charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry as well as their families. With Ben’s permission, we’re republishing some of their resources and tips on a variety of topics. We hope you find them useful during this unprecedented time.
Supporting individuals in the automotive industry through life’s challenges, Ben is continuing to provide assistance to the UK dealer community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Ben works with people to improve their lives by enhancing their health and wellbeing through its free and confidential online self-help, helpline and support services.
Ben advises: “There’s no doubt that we’re in unusual and challenging times. The Coronavirus is affecting many lives — both at home and at work. We want to reassure you that if you and your people need us, we are here for you.”
