Expert suppliers for tailored employee stay surveys

Stay Surveys

Employee retention is now a critical focus for organisations. One effective strategy to address it is the stay survey. Unlike exit surveys, which seek to understand why employees choose to leave, our employee stay surveys aim to uncover what you can do to encourage people to stay.

Why use an employee stay survey?

Just imagine you've been in your job for a while. It might be great, but there will come a time when you start to think about what's next for you.

The mistake many organisations make is that they don't spot the signs of people becoming a little disengaged. The problem is this can leave people feeling as though the organisation does not really care about them, or their future. Eventually, if they do not feel their needs are being met, people will choose to leave.

Why not use a stay interview instead?

Stay interviews are structured one-on-one conversations, usually between a manager and an employee, but they are often also conducted by HR.

Stay interviews typically involve a set of open-ended questions designed to elicit honest and comprehensive feedback about how people are feeling in their job.

The information gathered from these interviews is then used to identify what the organisation can do to proactively retain people.

However, stay interviews have a few disadvantages:

  • they are resource intensive
  • they need to be done with skill, and with sincerity
  • they can cause anxiety
  • they are often inconsistent

Stay surveys overcome these challenges:

  • they are more efficient
  • they are more anonymous
  • they ensure standardisation and consistency
  • they are more scalable
  • they are more convenient
  • they are easier to analyse
