In today’s dynamic job marketplace, employees have multiple options for where to work. As a result, employers need to understand not only how to recruit the best candidates, but also how to retain their best employees.

If you’re relying on standard benefits, employee perks, and exit interviews to engage your employees, then you’re missing a key component of a robust talent management program. And you’re probably needlessly spending precious capital recruiting replacement employees.

Stay interviews can reveal essential information and direction needed to retain the very best and brightest in your company. Structured for the mutual benefits of both the employee and the company, these interviews can help to reduce turnover costs, increase engagement and performance of employees, and increase organizational performance as well.

This course will cover the benefits and principle components of an effective retention strategy with special emphasis on stay interviews.
