Nine Months: Promoting Engagement and Retention

Continue to invest in your new hire by providing regular feedback, discussing goals and interests, and encouraging them to build relationships. This will go a long way towards ensuring the new hire remains engaged and productive.

Are Your Employees Engaged? Are You Sure?

Ask Your Employees These Questions:

  • ​Do you know what is expected of you at work?
  • Do you have the materials and equipment you need to do your job?
  • Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
  • In the last seven days, have you received recognition or praise for doing a good job?
  • Does your supervisor or someone else at work seem to care about you as a person?
  • Is there someone at work that encourages your development?
  • Does the mission of your unit (department or college) make you feel like your job is important?
  • Are your fellow employees committed to doing quality work?
  • Do you have a best friend at work?
  • Has someone at work talked to you about your progress?
  • Have you had opportunities to learn and grow?
  • Do your opinions seem to count?
  • What do we need to do to keep you engaged, challenged, and a happy member of our team?
