Exit interviews are often missed opportunities for companies to gather valuable feedback from employees — especially those who are leaving on quote-unquote “good terms.”

In this episode, our resident Tactical Tuesday queen, Vivien, walks us through the four different kinds of exits (employee resignations, layoffs, firings, and changing team) and what insights each kind of associated exit interview can provide into what can be done to improve retention and make better hiring decisions moving forward. Yet even knowing that these insights are available, many orgs don’t formally conduct exit interviews — and those who do are often not doing them as effectively as they could.

Listen in to hear some of the top ways to structure an exit interview to get the most out of it — as well as Sam’s #1 favorite exit interview question that transformed the way he looked at them entirely.
