People who get slotted into roles with inflexible responsibilities or ones that don’t play to their skills tend to be less happy with their jobs. But when managers work with their employees  to craft a career path that harnesses their strengths, they usually end up with a team of committed superstars.

Too often, companies only learn about employees’ unhappiness (and untapped potential) when they leave. Instead, setting up a standard entry interview can help managers uncover new hires’ interests, work styles, and hidden talents.

Entry interviews also expose potential challenges, so employers can plan for areas where employees will need more training support and address issues that might result in burnout down the line.

This survey includes questions about what energizes your new hire, what projects or topics they care about outside of work, what they’re interested in learning, how they learn and are best managed.

Use this survey if:

  • You’d like to improve employee satisfaction and engagement
  • You’re experiencing attrition
  • You’re growing rapidly
