Beyond Exit Interviews: Stay Interviews for Retention [+ PDF download]

#employeeengagement #employeeexperience #employeeretention #stayinterview

As an organization, you may have already implemented exit interviews as your employees transition out. But what about while they are still part of the team?

Let's paint a picture.

Scenario #1: your organization is running smoothly, your employees are thriving, there are strong communication flows in place, and everything is seemingly going perfectly. ๐Ÿ’ช

Scenario #2: your workplace feels like chaos, there are always fires to put out, employees are leaving left and right, and you can't seem to be able to retain your stronger employees. ๐Ÿงฏ

You may have experienced either one; one being more preferable. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But how do we keep our pulse on how our employees are doing in either scenario?

Stay Interviews can help us keep a pulse on how our employees are doing. 

Without a doubt, we know that it's important that we know how our employees are doing throughout their time within our organizations. That's where the Stay Interview can help.

Stay Interviews are one-on-one conversations between managers and employees that happen throughout the employment journey. This is a proactive discussion that helps managers gain insights into what motivates their employees, understand their goals, and address any concerns or challenges that might be impacting their job.  ๐Ÿค“

For my research folks, we can see this as a time to do some research on how to better engage and retain our employees. ๐Ÿค“

Stay Interviews can help create meaningful moments between you and your employees.

This can act as an opportunity not only to gather data about your employee's journey but as a time to connect in meaningful ways. ๐Ÿค
Carving out this intentional time between you and your employee can help build rapport and trust. It is important that we communicate that this time is set apart for them to freely communicate their thoughts, concerns, and aspirations.
This is a time of active listening that demonstrates your commitment to their growth and job satisfaction. It is a powerful way to send the message that you value their feedback and their place in your organization.
