Dr. Albrecht Blog Post: "Stay Interview” Questions - Talking with Library Employees Who Are Thinking of Quitting

We've just posted a new blog post by Dr. Albrecht in our "Library Service, Safety, & Security" section of Library 2.0: "'Stay Interview' Questions: Talking with Library Employees Who Are Thinking of Quitting." 
The "Stay Interview" is a useful tool for library leaders, managers, and supervisors. It can serve as an early-warning coaching conversation, that touches base with an employee who might be thinking of leaving your library. This person could be a new-hire, who is trying to decide if the job is actually right for her or him, or it could be a longtime employee who feels burned out, “top-stepped out” (no other promotional levels to reach or strive for), or on the fence about a career change, a move to a new city, or retiring early.

Dr. Albrecht's twice-monthly Library 2.0 podcast and blog posts are available for free, as are: access to 50,000 other library professionals, our regular mini-conferences, and all the conference recordings. We also offer a series of Dr. Albrecht paid webinars and recordings which are available for individual or group viewing here.
