Do HR teams evaluate risk of an employee leaving by (sort of) spying on employee activity?
If yes, What are different ways HR team may do it? I suspect following methods but anyone with concrete info?
- Get an external recruiter to approach you with potential offer to check if you entertain them.
- Track your office laptop activities to check if you visit(apply for jobs) on job sites.
For leadership positions, HR must be doing this before giving big responsibility to someone.
(Update based on comments: I am refering here more about the 'silent' checks (as I said, sort of spying) by HR teams not about obvious retention risks that a manager or HR can assess based on 1-1/appraisal discussions.)
- GoDaddy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)GDDY has a retention risk score / flag. It’s not active (like scanning your browsing history or the recruiter example) but it is tracked. I’ve had employees brought to my attention by HR business partners as retention risks based on time in role without promo or below market pay. I would imagine higher level IC roles and SLT may be watched more closely.
