Stay Interviews

October 7, 2022  8:30 – 9:00 AM PT
HR Answers Seminar
Zoom – Virtual Event

Stay interviews are conducted to help an organization’s manager understand why employees stay and what might cause them to leave. The comments can be used in recruiting activities, on employment pages of the organization’s website, and in building priorities for future initiatives.  They are a meaningful way of learning about retention and creating engagement and can be used to identify issues that if unresolved could cause turnover.

In an effective stay interview, managers or a member of the HR staff ask standard, structured questions in a casual and conversational manner. The preference of the interviewer might be HR so that greater candor and a lesser fear of retaliation is achieved.

This program will cover:

  • Using stay interviews as a retention tool
  • Best time to conduct these conversations
  • Ideas for opening and closing the interview
  • Questions to use during a stay conversation
  • How to use the information gathered

Next Gen Fiber Connectivity: to 400 Gbps and Beyond

October 13, 2022  8:30  AM PT
Graybar Seminar
Zoom – Virtual Event

This webinar looks at where fiber connector technology is going and why it plays an important role. Even if someone is installing switches with much less bandwidth than 400Gbps today, it is still important to understand how connectivity can impact the successful support of increasing data rates and bandwidth, increasing connection density, and shrinking channel budgets. Whether you are a hyperscale data center or a smaller enterprise data center, understanding where technology is going, what the options are, and what to think about when selecting connectivity may be the difference between success or failure.
