The Stay Interview is an alternative to the ‘Exit Interview’. The benefits of conducting this type of interview with your employees are enormous.
Firstly, this type of interview gives you, as a manager “permission” to ask some questions that you may not feel comfortable asking in a general conversation.
Secondly, it allows the employee to share what’s actually going on for them – rather than keeping it inside. This gives them the feeling of being listened to by their manager and gives you insight that you may not have gotten otherwise.
Thirdly, it allows an opportunity for misconceptions to be cleared up before they turn ugly and lead to an exit interview.
Why not use our Stay Interview to start with. You can always alter it later to suit your style and your business.
