Exit Interviews

Employees who leave your company- whether they resign or are discharged- often have a lot of knowledge about your business and your workplace.  Accordingly, a final sit-down with these employees may prove useful to your company going forward.  After the final decision of termination has been made, and all appropriate parties have been notified, employers should consider conducting exit interviews.     

The Purpose of Exit Interviews

Although often thought of as an afterthought, exit interviews can play an extremely valuable role in the growth of a company.  There are a variety of reasons to conduct exit interviews with departing employees, but each can contribute to the improvement of your business in one shape or another.  The following are some of the benefits of exit interviews:

  • Gain a better understanding about what works well at your company, and what needs improvement
  • Learn how to increase productivity out of the departing employee’s position 
  • Solicit feedback on your competitive standing in the marketplace, including salary, benefits packages and rewards programs
  • Identify problem areas and ways to minimize workplace conflict
  • Allow a discharged employee to “let off steam” and potentially lower the likelihood of a lawsuit
  • Reduce turnover
