Notion – Exit Interview Template

This template is perfect for ensuring you gain valuable insights from exiting employees. In order to retain an employee, one must ensure they are happy. Employees who feel valued and appreciated are much happier and more productive than those who do not. However, if an employee feels undervalued or disrespected, they will eventually seek employment elsewhere. Therefore, it is important to make sure that staff retention strategies are implemented correctly. A good strategy would involve ensuring that every member of staff is treated fairly and equally.

What is an exit interview?

An exit interview is a meeting between the employee and their manager or supervisor after they have left the company. It’s a chance for you to ask questions about why they are leaving, what they liked most about working at your company, and any other questions that you may want to know. This can be done in person, over the phone, or via email.


Why is conducting exit interviews and surveys important?

Exit interviews help you understand why people leave your organization. They also provide insight into how well your employees feel about their jobs and the culture of your company. Exit interviews allow you to make changes where needed so that you can retain more of your current staff and attract new talent.


How to conduct an exit interview:

  1. Make sure you have all of the information you need before conducting the interview. You should know who the employee was reporting to, when he/she started with the company, how long he/she has been there, and if it was part-time or full time employment.
  2. If possible, schedule the interview during off hours so that you don’t interrupt anyone else’s work day.
  3. Be prepared to answer some tough questions. Some employees will leave on bad terms because they feel like they were not treated fairly by management. They might also leave because they didn’t get along with another co-worker.
  4. Don’t make them wait too long to give their answers. An exit interview shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.
  5. Keep notes of everything that was said. You never know when you might need this information later down the road.
