Effective Exit Interviews

Find out how to perform an effective exit interview that gives you the information your company needs.There is a wealth of information to be gained from an effective exit interview. If done properly you can learn what you need to change, improve or keep the same. Since turnover is so expensive, opportunities to learn how to keep the most valuable employees in the future is vital to the ongoing success of the company. Unfortunately, all too often only lip service is given to this potentially valuable source of learning what went wrong. We have created a culture of fear of being honest. Almost everyone offers platitudes and half-truths when asked for sensitive information. Think for a minute about trying to get accurate reference material from former employers. So afraid of lawsuits they are trained to provide only the most basic information, so too with exit interviews. For the average person being interviewed it feels like walking through a mine-field. The risk of loss of reputation stifles most people from being absolutely honest about why they are leaving the job. So, they make up a story such as 'Itís time for me to pursue other areas of professional interest' or 'I am planning to spend more quality time with my family.' How do you get them to feel safe enough to offer some valuable truths? We will offer strategies for creating trust and rapport, as well as offering information to make your exit interview more powerful. Finally, we will make suggestions as to how you can analyze the data and make recommendations for change within your organization. This topic is valuable for managers at all levels in the organization as well as human resource professionals. Not only will you learn how to conduct effective exit interviews, but you will learn how to use the information gained to improve upon the processes and management style within your organization.
