In a recent survey of over 6,000 HR executives, only 12 stated that exit surveys helped improve their companies. The challenge is not only getting data that is accurate but also assigning accountabilities for improvement. Stay Interviews solve these challenges by placing managers in the solution seat and holding them accountable for engagement and retention improvements. Learn three tests to verify if your executives apply current exit survey results and three techniques to convince your executives to implement stay interviews. Finnegan will also who you how to train your managers to conduct stay interviews effectively to improve your engagement and retention.
