  4. Purpose The purpose of the Retention Interview Project is to address the need to maintain a highly qualified and diverse workforce through focused retention discussions and action plans. This will be accomplished through research, development, and implementation of a Retention Interview Process that provide proactive mechanisms for identifying staff that may represent a retention risk and discussion guidelines and tools. Retention Interview Process Training

  5. Background The Retention Interview Project was a recommendation from the Faculty and Staff Recruitment Sub-committee Report dated February 15, 2007 and the 2007 Diversity Blueprints Final Report dated March 15, 2007. Both of these reports indicated a concern for faculty and staff at risk of leaving the University for other opportunities. The reports further emphasized the importance of identifying career issues and concerns in advance so that negative issues are addressed and positive factors are reaffirmed and replicated. The 2007 Human Capital Report indicates an increasing number of staff becoming eligible to retire through 2014 and some departments are expected to experience a higher than average turnover rate over the next several years.

  6. Scope The scope for the Retention Interview Process Pilot Program is Staff employees on the Ann Arbor campus and UMHS. All information and results from the pilots will be shared with the Diversity Blueprints Faculty and Staff Sub-committee for their consideration. Retention Interview Process Training

  7. Retention Issues and Challenges From the 2007 Faculty and Staff Recruitment and Retention Sub-Committee Diversity Blueprints Task Force; 2007 Diversity Council Subcommittee Recommendations: 2008 AAP Report; and 2007 Human Capital Report: • “Retention too little, too late after years of hard work and feelings of disrespect; because this is a Research I institution, the work of staff members can sometimes seem less significant, thus less appreciated”. • “Cascade effect: when one person leaves, others may follow”. • “Diversity in small numbers and feeling of isolation. Lack of community”. • “Need a process or system where staff can provide feedback about their work experience, climate, and any issues/concerns regarding their employment”. • ”Retention interview s should not conflict with job evaluations, promotion, and faculty tenure process”. • Ann Arbor campus – 43 job groups have goals for minority staff for 2008 • Ann Arbor campus – 21 job groups have goals for women staff for 2008 compared to 14 for 2007 • UM Health System – 37 job groups have goals for minority staff for 2008 • UM Health System – 12 job groups have goals for women staff for 2008 compared to 6 for 2007 • People tend to seek other opportunities during the first 3 years of service (UMHS). • Retirement estimates through 2013 are increasing for the majority of staff career families (includes UMHS) • African Americans and Hispanic managers are among the highest eligible for retirement through 2014 Retention Interview Process Training

  8. What is the Retention Interview Process? The Retention Interview Process is a set of tools and discussion guidelines for supervisors and managers to use in identifying and responding to staff that are at risk of leaving the University for other opportunities. It can also be used to help those units that experience a higher than average transfer rate of staff between departments. The tools will enable supervisors to prioritize possible retention issues. The discussion questions will provide a foundation for a positive two-way interview to determine if staff career expectations are being met and if a Job Satisfaction and Growth Plan is necessary. The Retention Interview Process is not intended to identify or address performance issues or alienate staff. Retention Interview Process Training

  12. Recognition Retention Interview Process Pilot Message July 2008 Optional message Supervisors and Managers can use to inform Staff about the Retention Interview Process. • “Retention is important to support our mission of the being the Leaders and Best. There is a University-wide project from the Diversity Blueprints Initiative that includes piloting a process on how best to conduct retention interviews. Our department will be part of the pilot and we will be conducting retention interviews with staff members. Not all staff members will be interviewed. Participants will be selected based on departmental data and other criteria related to retention factors. We will be conducting these interviews during the next several months. The results of the pilot will be used to make recommendations for an on-going process that will be available to all units via the web. Thank you for supporting this very important Diversity Blueprints pilot initiative”. Retention Interview Process Training
