10 Good Reasons to Conduct Exit Interviews

The exit interview is an invaluable source of information to assess the overall quality of work life within your organization and identify opportunities to improve retention and employee engagement. Do you need more reasons why you should be implementing a structured exit interview process in your organization? Here are 10…

1) Departing employees are generally more forthcoming than those still in their jobs 2) You will learn the reason for an employee’s departure (it may be different than you think!) 3) The exit interview allows the employee to provide constructive feedback and leave on a positive note 4) That last touch point provides you with an opportunity to review continuing obligations with the employee (e.g., non-competes, intellectual property agreements etc.) 5) It provides the opportunity to ask if there are any open issues of which you need to be aware. This can help reduce risk and idenitfy matters that may require immediate attention. 6) You will get a candid assessment of your organization’s environment and culture 7) Insight into recruiting, on boarding and training needs may be revealed. 8) The feedback will help you to identify areas that can help improve staff retention. 9) Improvement opportunities in management development and succession planning can be detected. 10) It’s cost effective and easy to facilitate with HR Acuity On-Demand Exit Interviews! (OK a little shameless plug!)
