HR Newsletter: Stay Interview Best Practices

Employee turnover can be a significant challenge for employers, as it can lead to increased costs, loss of productivity, and a negative impact on company culture. Stay interviews offer a proactive approach to understanding and addressing the needs of employees, ultimately enhancing retention rates.

  • Establish clear objectives
  • Integrate stay interviews into onboarding
  • Create a safe and confidential environment
  • Train interviewers
  • Ask open-ended questions
