Exit Interviews

Exit interviews are conducted with departing employees in a last ditch effort to learn what made them jump ship. Companies spend a lot of money recruiting and training up staff, so they want to try to prevent the revolving door from revolving too quickly. If employee job dissatisfaction, tyrannical management, lack of advancement opportunities, uncompetitive salaries or poor company culture is causing talented members of the team to move on, then you want to know about it.

Theoretically, the whole premise of the exit interview is to improve the way the company operates by picking the brain of departing employees who are likely to be candid about their experiences. The interview will essentially focus on three main points: why you are leaving, what you enjoyed about working there and what was problematic.

Questions will include things like: What did or didn't you like about your job? Did the job you were hired for match your expectations? Can you describe the management style of your manager? How did you find the company culture/advancement opportunities? Was there adequate training? Did you receive regular performance appraisals? And the big one – why are you leaving?

Parting Company can engage exiting employees in three ways; online, telephone and face to face dependent on the package selected. This information is then collated and a report is provided on a quarterly basis along with candid discussion on the steps to manage outcomes to better the organisation. If disclosures identify any behaviour that would put the organisation at risk, then a follow up contact is made immediately after the interview process to the organisation contact person. We can tailor a requirement to meet your needs including tracking information over time to show you trends and improvements or areas of further development within your organisation.
