“Some new Challenger, Gray & Christmas data suggest that more organizations are indeed warming to the concept of stay interviews.

The Chicago-based outplacement and executive coaching firm recently polled about 100 HR executives and found 27 percent of respondents saying their organizations already conduct stay interviews, with another 24 percent saying their companies plan to start doing so in the near future.

Unlike exit interviews, stay interviews ‘give employers the opportunity to correct any potential issues before talent leaves,’ says John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

These issues could concern talent management, resource allocation, general corporate culture or ‘anything that might impact engagement,’ says Challenger.

‘The outcome of these interviews should hopefully boost productivity and morale, as well as better connect employees to their positions, co-workers, managers and the company overall.'”
