Employee turn-over and staff shortages have been a problem in healthcare for a long time, and the pandemic turned it into a crisis. Many organizations conduct exit interviews when an employee is leaving, but it’s also important to have meaningful conversations with existing staff so they choose to stay and rebuild the workplace of the future.

“Stay interviews” can be an effective way to assess an employee’s engagement and satisfaction in your workplace, and to allow you to address issues and keep staff longer.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • What are stay interviews & why are they important?
  • Who should conduct a stay interview, & what is the best timing?
  • How to effectively conduct a stay interview: useful questions & how to listen.
  • What to do after the interview with the information you’ve received.
  • And, we’ll share a tool to support leaders who want to be purposeful and confident in these meaningful conversations.
