Stay interviews are an important means of re-recruiting your workforce – because what attracted your employees is often different from what will keep them. Stay interviews tend to improve engagement and productivity - as well as retention. In this webinar you will learn how to prepare for, conduct & follow through on stay interviews.

Why Should You Attend

Turnover today is rampant because employees can be choosy with:

 » The lowest unemployment rate in 48 years
 » For the first time ever in the U.S. there are more job openings than eligible candidates
 » Over half of U.S. employees saying it is 'somewhat likely' or 'very likely' they can find a job as good as the one they have 50% of employees & 60% of millennials considering new employment opportunities the average tenure for employees in their 20’s being less than 18 months

And turnover is expensive with the cost of replacing a:

 » $10-hour employee over $3,000
 » $30-50,000 job over $8,000
 » Replacing a $100,000 often over $200,000

However, engaged employees when compared to unengaged employees have:

 » 65% less turnover in low-turnover organizations and 25% lower turnover in high-turnover organizations
