Here are the three often overlooked benefits of conducting 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.
