This practical guide introduces managers to a powerful new engagement and retention tool: the stay interview. Smart companies have begun conducting these periodic reviews in order to discover why their important talent might leave and to solve any problems before they actually quit.
We've all encountered performance reviews a few times in our lives. So often, those conversations are about things the employee needs to stop doing. Rarely do bosses and their employees discuss what the employees want to do more of. That's where Richard Finnegan's Stay Interview concept comes in. Detailed in his new book, The Stay Interview, published by AMACOM, this kind of discussion increases transparency and therefore retention of quality employees before they start heading out the door.
