Exit interview

What is an exit interview?

An exit interview is a series of questions you ask an employee as they leave their job at your company. The goal of the exit interview is to get constructive feedback from your departing employee that might help you reduce employee turnover or improve processes. It will also help you understand your current working environment and what could make you a more attractive employer.

In order to make the exit interview as valuable as possible, be sure to prepare beforehand. Questions revolving job satisfaction, working environment, or their incoming job opportunity are crucial to getting valuable feedback.
