The end of employment is a hectic time for HR. You have to document the reasons for the employee’s departure, deal with benefits issues, and ensure that the soon-to-be-ex-employee’s final paycheck is accurate. Sometimes, you’re simply relieved to get the departing employee out the door. Before you kick him to the curb, however, you should consider the benefits of conducting an exit interview.
The information employers obtain through exit interviews is often very valuable. Exit interviews take a minimal amount of time and cost you nothing out of pocket. Moreover, you can tap in to what’s good, bad, and ugly about your workplace.
