Title

Resolution directing the Employee Relations Director to implement a plan for conducting regular “stay interviews” with City employees to investigate job satisfaction.

 

Analysis

This resolution directs the Employee Relations Director to implement a plan for conducting regular “Stay Interviews” with City employees to investigate job satisfaction. The Employee Relations Director shall present this plan to the Common Council within 4 months of adoption of this resolution.

 

Body

Whereas, The 2020 Budget was adopted by Common Council File Number 190001 on November 26, 2019; and

 

Whereas, Amendment 30 placed a footnote in the Budget stating, “The Employee Relations Director shall implement regular “stay interviews” with City employees to investigate job satisfaction”; and

 

Whereas, Stay interviews are a method of identifying strengths and weaknesses within a workplace by asking current employees why they continue to work for their department; and

 

Whereas, Stay interviews are often preferable to exit interviews as they provide context for why employees are happy in their workplace, as opposed to only hearing feedback from potentially disgruntled employees leaving the department; and

 

Whereas, The Department of Employee Relations is in a position to prepare a plan for conducting, or facilitating department heads to conduct, stay interviews; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Employee Relations Director shall implement a plan for conducting regular “stay interviews” with City employees to investigate job satisfaction; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, That the Employee Relations Director shall present this plan to the Common Council within 4 months of adoption of this resolution.
