Conduct an exit interview

Key points

  • Conducting exit interviews can provide the employer with invaluable data about its employment practices and any treatment perceived by employees as unsatisfactory or unfair.
  • Provided that exit interviews are conducted in a sensitive, fair and non-threatening way, many employees will reveal the truth about their reasons for leaving.
  • It is best if the person conducting the exit interview is not the departing employee's line manager.
