An exit interview can give you valuable information to prevent more employees from jumping ship.

Sometimes problems with management can be hard to spot.

A stady steam of exits from a particular group can be rooted in issues that aren’t revealed in other review processes.

It’s likely that you’ll find some constructive feedback for managers while conducting exit interviews.

3. Stay Up to Date with Compensation & Benefits
