Exit Interviews

Why conduct exit interviews?

Exit Interviews are a vital tool in supporting organisations, improving retention of talent and employee engagement by:

  • Identifying why employees leave
  • Whether employees are leaving to join competitors
  • Identifying trends and causes such as management style, communications, reward and recognition and environment
  • Getting feedback on things that are working well
  • Identifying employee perceptions
  • Opportunity to leave the employee with a positive image of the organisation

Why outsource your exit interviews?

Typically an exit interview is a meeting between at least one representative from a company’s human resources team and a departing employee. However, there is feedback that this traditional approach limits the quality of the feedback received from the departing employees as they may feel that being honest may affect any future reference they require. The true value of an exit interview can only be realised if the employee can trust and relate to the individual conducting the interview.

The engagement of an independent external company to conduct exit interviews allows an impartial third party to support employees giving truthful and more qualitative feedback.

The professional team at Signature HR are extremely skilled in producing quality exit interviews providing insightful feedback which have empowered organisations to engage on change programmes which have delivered positive results.
