The landscape of work culture is quickly evolving…
Hiring rates are up, unemployment rates are down.
And with an influx of top talent entering the workforce, organizations are now battling it out in order to employ and keep these high-performers.
And retaining top talent is an ongoing war.
As a leader, it’s your job to build trust with your employees, communicate goals and objectives clearly and consistently, recognize and celebrate their successes, coach and give feedback…the list goes on. And all this needs to be taking place on a daily basis if you want to hold on to your top performers.
Because the minute your star employee feels unrecognized, he/she will be on the job hunt.
The Keys to Engaging and Retaining Top Talent
Exit interviews are now a moot point. Sure, they might give you an idea of what you can improve upon for a new recruit, but the sad fact is that you’ve already lost key performers that make your organization successful.
Enter: the STAY interview.
Unlike an exit interview, the Stay interview is a process not a one-time event and it’s done over time before you notice initial signs of disengagement among team members.
Its design is simple: Stay interviews are casual, one-on-one conversations between you and your employee, focusing on ways you can help them feel recognized, more engaged, and ultimately, more successful in the organization.
And when used correctly, Stay interviews and help keep employees longer and cause them to work better.
But how do you know what to ask, when to ask it, and how to build a solid foundation for your team?
