Stay interviews are interviews with members of your team or as a group. The immediate goal is to learn how they feel about working for your organization. The over-arching goal is to keep talented and dedicated people working for you.
At Workplace Culture Store, we design and deliver stay interviews differently. During our stay interviews, we explore their experience as an employee from a behavioral, career and cultural perspective.
We conduct these interviews with individuals and groups. We do both because different information comes out of each. Working people describe their experience differently depending on who is listening, and because we understand how that works, we’re able to decode that information and make it useful. We are able to provide you experience and engagement data that gives you much more than an employee survey and definitely more than an exit interview.
Depending on the culture of your workplace, employees express very little of their true experience directly to their managers, or even to anyone inside the organization. They say only what they can without fear of reprisal or alienating that colleague or manager.
The trouble is, the most important information is found in the things they aren’t willing to say.
