What Attracts People To Your Firm?

“Be thankful for problems. If they were less difficult, someone with less ability might have your job.” – Jim Lovell

I’m not talking about what attracts clients to your firm. I wonder what your people would say if you asked why they stay at your firm. Not a full-blown employee satisfaction survey like the best places to work surveys. I’ve never been convinced that these are always truthful.

I mean a few simple questions as part of your stay interview initiative.

Dan Rockwell (@Leadershipfreak) gives us three enlightening questions to ask each of your team members. Try asking these questions randomly, one at a time, when interacting with individuals.

  • If you recommended our company as a good place to work to a friend, what would you say?
  • What do you enjoy most about your job? Least?
  • How much of your day are you using your strengths?
  • "A lot of people quit looking for work as soon as they find a job."
  • Zig Ziglar
