At SourceMatch, recruitment and retention is seen as a
continuum of employee engagement.
The SourceMatch team takes a holistic approach to recruiting. The term “recruiter” covers only a fraction of our capabilities. SourceMatch consults with its clients to hire correctly on the front end in order to get the right people on the team. However, that team won’t achieve much if employees are demotivated, unclear about their goals and quit after a short tenure.
After a new employee starts, the organization has the critical job of making an employee productive. Employers need to give employees clear expectations and the tools and knowledge to do the job and meet expectations. Employee engagement and organizational culture will evolve on their own. But, will this environment reinforce the practices critical for building a great team? High performance doesn’t happen by accident. Employee engagement is a deliberate and ongoing process.
The SourceMatch team typically consults organizations who suffer from high turnover. The first step is to put together a systematic approach to gather data from current employees and those employees that just left. The popular reason for turnover and morale is pay. However, countless employee engagement and exit interview surveys have proven otherwise.

Engagement and Exit Interview Surveys
An exit interview conducted as a part of the exit process for an employee who is voluntarily leaving an organization is a highly valuable tool for building a strong workforce and a culture that engages and empowers employees to do their best work. Done correctly, the exit interview process improves retention and cuts the high cost of turnover provided that actionable steps are taken based on the feedback. It is important for each organization to customize its own exit interview in order to maintain the highest levels of survey validity and reliability.
The process can be very rewarding as the employer listens to the people that matter most — the existing workforce — as opposed to just asking the opinion of those that are leaving. The surveys can provide some surprising data about the current sentiment of the workforce, a group that can be taken for granted as everyone, especially management, gets caught-up in the “busy-ness” of their jobs. These surveys represent a highly valuable tool for building a strong workforce and a culture that engages and empowers employees to do their best work. Done correctly, the engagement surveys should drive a management culture that improves retention and cuts the high cost of turnover provided that actionable steps are taken based on the feedback.
Engagement and exit interviews are a great time to obtain organizational understanding from honest feedback about opportunities to improve the organization. You can obtain actionable information in a number of categories based on employee perceptions about: mission, vision, and direction. You can also learn a great deal about your environment, culture, management, duties, responsibilities, compensation, benefits, as well as ethics or compliance. Opportunities to improve in all of these categories can help management retain future employees, improve company culture, and enhance the engagement of current employees.
