Employee Exit Survey Questions

When employees leave your company it can often feel like a blow to the stomach. But what made them leave their job? What could you have done to make them stay? What were the main reasons for this outcome? What does the new employer have that you don't? Never let your employees go without asking them: Why? Leaving employees will also tend to be more honest and uncover problems that you might not have spotted. Even if your employee engagement is generally high, there might be other questions to ask. This exit interview enables you to dig deeper. Knowing the reasons behind decisions made, gives you the option to make important changes in critical areas of your company. That way you have the possibility to reduce employee turnover, increase employee engagement, and keep the most talented employees on board.
