How to use this template

Exit interviews provide a golden opportunity for you to understand exactly why a departing employee is leaving. When these meetings are conducted well, both sides benefit. The organization gains valuable insight and the employee affirms their contributions to the organization. 

The overarching goals of the exit interview should always be centered around learning and knowledge-sharing. This concept of learning is built into our meeting agenda template for exit interviews. With this template, you create the structure that will guide the conversation in a way that maximizes productivity. Just remember, the exit interview should feel like a conversation, rather than a list of questions. So don’t feel like you have to follow everything to a tee.
