An exit interview is an interview held with an outgoing employee who is about to leave the company. This interview is generally held by the person’s manager or an HR representative. The goal is to find out about the person’s experience working for the company and their reasons for leaving.
This can help organizations to find out what they do well and what can be improved. Holding exit interviews and making changes based on the findings can result in lower turnover and increased productivity for the company. They can be held whether the person was made redundant or left of their own accord.
