by , 16 September 2014
An exit interview is an interview you have with an employee who's resigned from your company.

There are many benefits of conducting exit interviews and we've certainly highlighted them here at FSP Business. In previous articles, we said the benefits of exit interviews are that they:

• Determine the real reasons for people leaving;
• Minimise the risk of litigation;
• Collect key information for the job description; and
• Identify and manage trends and underlying company issues.

But our experts have done more research. Today, they reveal three often overlooked benefits of conducting exit interviews.

Read on to find out what they are so you can reap these benefits in your workplace.

Here are the three often overlooked benefits of conducting exit interviews


Exit interviews will help you to benefit in three ways:

Benefit #1: Save time

You will reduce unnecessary time spent dealing with replacing and re-training, as well as the flow-on effect of time spent recreating corporate culture, patching up dynamics of the team and redistributing the workload left by the departing employee.

Benefit #2: Review overall recruitment and selection process

Exit interviews may identify that the departing employee wasn't the right person for the job in the first place or that the manager may not have good management skills and may need more training.

Benefit #3: Enhance morale and staff satisfaction

The Practical Guide to Human Resources Management says when you conduct exit interviews, other staff will know that your company is concerned about the departing employee's welfare and perceive that as concern for the welfare of employees in general – a very positive effect.

The exit interview can also confirm that the employee is leaving on good terms and will carry a favourable attitude towards your company in the future.

If you want to reap these overlooked benefits, conduct exit interviews in your workplace.
