Every employee that leaves does so for a good reason. Sometimes that reason is the organization itself. Exit interviews provide a valuable opportunity for an organization to find out what it could be doing better from the employee's perspective.
The information collected can be used to:
- Improve or modify operational and communication processes.
- Create a better working experience for current and future employees.
While an exit interview is not always possible or appropriate, the majority of employees should be given the opportunity to express their views openly and confidentially. Use this template as a guide to conducting and documenting the exit interview process.
