Overview of the webinar

 

A recent LinkedIn news article titled "Exit Interview, Meet Stay Interview” states:
“Scores of people are leaving jobs for greener pastures. That's a lot of exit interviews. While the Great Reshuffle is upon us, and looks to continue well in to 2023, a new kind of interview is growing in popularity - the stay interview. It's a conversation not focused on reasons for quitting, but rather why workers are staying put. It's part of an effort to "dial up retention efforts during the record turnover."

Do you want to dial up your retention efforts? Adding stay interviews to your engagement and retention strategies will help your organization retain your critical talent so they won’t be motivated to seek out greener pastures.  It’s the single best tool you can give managers. The benefits of are:

  • They motivate the employee: They’re excited simply by the fact that the organization is concerned about their future and that their manager took the time to consult with them.
  • They’re personalized: Unlike surveys and many other retention tools that are primarily focused on what excites many employees, this approach is customized to a single identifiable individual and their needs and wants.
  • They include actions: Unlike exit interviews, which only identify problems, stay interviews also encourage the parties to identify actions that can improve the employee experience and actions that can help eliminate any major turnover triggers.

Why should you attend?

Are your employees engaged? Do they feel committed to the work they are doing? Do they brag about your company to others as a great place to work?

The best way to find out what your employees think and how to retain them is to ask them. Not just “How’s it going?”, but specific questions to get specific answers. Its aim, quite simply, is to learn what motivates your top talent employees to continue working for you and the organization. How well are their objectives or dreams being fulfilled? Which aspects of their work do they enjoy the most? Which do they least enjoy? Are they receiving sufficient opportunities for growth and development? What would influence them to look elsewhere?

Therefore, stay interviews will help managers and leaders understand their employees' goals and how they and the organization can ensure they will continue to be engaged and excited about their job. The stay interview is also an opportunity to build trust with employees and a chance to assess the degree of employee satisfaction and engagement that exists within a department or company. It will help managers understand why employees stay so that those important factors can be reinforced. They also signal frustrations that can be nipped in the bud before they drive the employee to start looking elsewhere.
