Let's say you hire a new marketing director, and a year later, you see a severe increase in turnover rates. Out of 15 employees, only seven from the prior year remain.
Undoubtedly, an increase in turnover rates can impact your team's productivity and morale, and leave you nervous about the future of your department.
So how do you figure out what's going wrong, or how your marketing director can improve her performance to ensure higher job satisfaction for her team?
To determine what causes employees to leave, and to create a better, happier employee experience moving forward, it's critical you conduct productive exit interviews.
An exit interview consists of questions you ask an employee who is leaving your company to determine ways you might mitigate turnover rates in the future. Many employees who are leaving can help you determine areas for improvement and provide valuable feedback. Additionally, it can be helpful to identify consistent patterns of discontent to figure out larger organizational issues.
