Exit Interview Toolkit - Starting And Enhancing Your Program

Recorded Session
60 Minutes


    An employee hands in his resignation and walks out the door and with him walks out valuable skills, knowledge, and capabilities. You are sorry to see him leave and you don’t want to lose any more like him. Also walking out is the key to how to keep good employees and how to make your business better than ever. The key is Exit Interviews.

    Exit Interviews can provide critical information that only leaving employees can provide. This is information that can reduce turnover and increase retention. With this information, it is possible to increase employee satisfaction, improve business systems, increase engagement and commitment, and maximize quality. Simply put, information is power, and Exit Interviews can provide strategic knowledge that you can‘t live without.
