The Stay Interview: A Powerful Employee Retention Tool

Duration: 90 minutes

<<UNLIMITED PARTICIPANTS -- INVITE YOUR ENTIRE TEAM!>>

If you’re like most companies, there are certain employees that you really, really don’t want to lose. They perform mission critical tasks and you don’t have backup. They have a positive attitude that rubs off on everyone else and keeps morale high. They have institutional knowledge that can’t easily be replicated. It’s easy to take these people for granted and assume they’ll be there forever.

Think again. Studies show that 70% to 80% of workers are considering a job change … and 50% are actively looking. If you have mission-critical employees like the ones we just described, you need a plan to retain them. In this Webinar you’ll get one: It’s called a Stay Interview.


WHY ATTEND

Stay Interviews are a proactive and proven solution to the turnover problem. They allow organizations to determine why each employee is likely to stay or leave -- and then develop an effective plan to retain and develop those they want to keep.

The key question is, how do you conduct an effective Stay Interview? What questions should you ask? Who should conduct the interview? What should you do if you discover that an important member of the team is likely to jump ship? How do you structure an effective retention plan?

This webinar provides a step-by-step plan -- plus meeting materials -- for conducting Stay Interviews that help you identify minor employee satisfaction issues before they blow up into reasons to quit. And you’ll also learn why retention interviews are vastly superior to exit interviews.

Participants will receive a Stay Interview toolkit that includes:

  1. Supervisor’s pre-interview form to set the stage for the interview
  2. Staff retention interview questionnaire
  3. Retention Interview Form with specific questions in 10 key areas including an individualized retention plan for each employee
  4. Retention tracking forms
