When to Use Stay Interviews

 Stay interviews enable employers to understand employees’ expectations to improve retention rates. Additionally, stay interviews show employees that they are valued, as the interview is about learning what is important to them in order to stay at the organisation.

How do you determine who receives a stay interview?

This depends entirely on the organization and the insight they wish to unlock. One of the obvious answers to determining who receives a retention interview are teams with a high turnover rate.

It is important to find out the reasons behind the high turnover to curate solutions and solve this problem. Organizations often target the following employees for stay interviews:

  • Teams with a high turnover rate
  • Underperforming teams
  • Diverse employees (gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation)
  • Positions that are difficult to replace
  • Millennials
  • C-Suite

Turn Insight into Action – What to do After the Interview

Retention interviews are only beneficial when action is taken based on the data that has been collected. It is counteractive to ask for employee feedback and then do nothing with it as this may lead to distrust and dissatisfaction.

The first step is to evaluate the interview. We do this by assessing

-The quality and quantity of interviewees’ answers.

-The individual’s body language and which issues they focused on the most. Based on your requirements we have the option to

– Link the data to the job function rather than the individual to ensure that the data is unbiased and anonymous.

– Customise the data based on individual employee conversations so that the business can hear why each person stays or may choose to go.

– We then develop a ranking system to determine the risk level of the team or the department as a whole.

– Provide a full department overview of the feedback we have received, the team ranking, and potential solutions to problems brought up by the team.
