An exit interview is a meeting conducted at the end of an individual's employment. This exit interview form helps your organisation to get the feedback from your past employees.
Exit interviews are often used to help improve a company or organisation and reduce their employee turnover. The interviews can be conducted in person face-to-face, over the phone, through paperwork, on through an online media.
Online surveys tend to have the highest participation rate from former employees.
For employees, exit interviews are one of the last deep conversational interactions they have with your organisation. It should be their chance to give a review of their experience, an opportunity that affirms the contributions they've made to your organisation.
To make the most of the exit interview process, you should consider asking the following sample exit interview questions:
- What made you look for a new job? - You may learn about a specific incident that caused them to begin searching.
- What made you accept the new position? - If the employee tells you that they left for higher pay, you might need to increase your company's compensation package.
- What could have been done to convince you to stay? - This will give the employee the opportunity to give feedback about what may have made a better work environment.
When both parties focus on these learning and knowledge-sharing goals, exit interviews can help working relationships end on a good note. Many times, the feedback employees provide is positive, and when it's not, it gives you valuable insight on how to fix it for your existing employees.
