Exit Interviews


What are the top three reasons good employees leave your organization? Could you
have kept them with just some simple changes? Without a professional exit interviewing program it's very hard to know. Departing employees usually give their employer a polite reason for leaving-not the real scoop on what you could have done to keep them.

Drake gets the real story.

Contact your local Drake International office in Arcadia, California or Plantation, Florida to learn more about our Exit Interview Solution. 

Exit interviews  acilitated by an expert third party give you deeper and more accurate
information than interviews conducted in-house. They generate the data you need
to end unnecessary turnover and improve operations.

An on-line enterprise survey is an easy way to get quantitative data on employee attitudes that drive performance, indicating where you are strong and which factors are holding the company back. Using a third party provider (rather than doing the survey in-house) gives you better response rates, more candid answers and objective analysis of the results.

    organizational challenges

How is it Done?

The first step is for Drake Consultants to customize exit interview questions for your organization. Questions are designed to encourage employees to offer insights on how to improve their former role and the company overall.

Next, the consultants prepare a communication plan so that managers understand the process and HR knows what to communicate to departing employees.
The interviews themselves use an automated on-line system for a reliable, confidential and cost-effective way to gather feedback.

Finally, Drake delivers careful analysis that identifies where the problems lie and what you can do to stop costly turnover.

What is the Payoff?

Exit interviews are simply a good management practice that communicates to employees that their opinions matter.
The payoff comes straight from reduced turnover and improved operations. If you haven't calculated your cost of turnover you will likely be surprised at how high it is. These costs include the direct cost of recruiting and training as well as the indirect costs of lower productivity, the burden on other members of the team and reduced client loyalty.
