Employees leave a company for a wide range of reasons. Some are quite benign, such as wanting to move closer to family. Other reasons, though, can be troubling. A departure could be the result of wrongdoing in the workplace, an overly stressful environment, or an abusive manager.
Many companies use exit interviews as an opportunity to better understand the reason for an employee’s departure. It’s often the last chance to learn what, if anything, has gone wrong. And, at least theoretically, a departing employee is likely to be more honest about issues when he or she no longer fears losing a job for speaking up.
For these reasons exit interviews offer a unique window into the corporate culture and potential wrongdoing.
