Stay Interviews Are THE Engagement Survey Solution!

2016 SHRM Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: Learn how to implement stay interviews immediately after your employee survey results are in so your supervisors can solve employee issues at the ground level.

Gallup tells us that engagement has been stuck for 15 years and the reasons are clear. Surveys give us data but not solutions, and the driving force to improve engagement is through supervisors and not with employee programs. This session provides the clear path to frame stay interview questions based on survey data so supervisors can ask employees for their specific needs and then solve them. And then watch your company's engagement scores go up. You will learn:

·         The top five stay interview questions and probes in order to highlight the most concerning engagement survey findings. 

·         How to train your supervisors to listen, take notes and ask probing questions, as well as how to support company policies,
          in order to build trust.

·         How to design ideal stay plans for individual employees to deepen engagement and improve retention.
