Instead of focusing on why employees leave at Exit interviews, employers could up their retention rate by identifying and eliminating the factors that cause employees to start looking for jobs, or their being open to offers from other employers. Because the factors that cause employees to stay are also the same factors that create employee satisfaction and create engagement and productivity.

What’s an employer to do when one of their best employees professes profound, long-term dissatisfaction or even worse turns in their resignation? Alternately, what can an employer do when facing budget cuts, and/or big changes but doesn’t want to lose its best and brightest employees during the process?

Stay interviews concern awkward situations, but those conversations don’t have to be awkward. In fact, better relationships can be built from the candid conversations that can occur in a stay interview. But frank and healing conversations regarding awkward situations, certainly need to be planned before they occur and this webinar will cover how to structure and conduct those conversations.
