exit interview
An interview conducted with a (soon to be former) employee just before he or she leaves the company. The goal is to determine the reasons for the employee's departure. The primary end-objective should be to uncover any correctable problems within the company that might have caused the employee to leave--and might result in other valuable employees leaving if the not corrected. Because the problem might have been with the employee's manager/supervisor and the employee might be reluctant to share information about the problem with the person who was the source of the problem--and, even if the information is shared, it might not be passed on by the manager/supervisor--the interview should be conducted by someone, such as a human resources department professional, who did not have direct influence on the employee's work activities.
