An underestimated tool
Exit interviews are a formal process where an HR representative meets with the departing employee to gather feedback on their experience with the company.
An exit interview aims to learn why the employee is leaving and identify areas where the company can improve its practices or policies.
Exit interviews aim to obtain information that can be used to improve Human resource management practices and improve employee retention.
In the case of resignations, the objective is also to understand the reasons that motivate employees to leave.
During the interview, the HR representative may ask questions about the employee’s job satisfaction, work environment, relationships with colleagues and supervisors, and reasons for leaving.
The information gathered in exit interviews can help the company identify patterns or trends in employee turnover, improve employee retention, and enhance overall employee satisfaction.
With this in mind, if you take the time to examine your internal processes, you may find:
- Dysfunctions in the organizational system;
- An unfavourable work climate among your employees;
- Salaries below the market average;
- A lack of training or integration of new technologies;
- Lack of social cohesion;
- Little opportunity for career advancement;
- Employee management problems.
You must ask questions and listen carefully to the employee’s responses. There is a better time to justify the negative aspects or persuade the employee to stay. You are there to listen and to improve.
Practice active listening and show that you understand.
