Best Practices for Running Meaningful Exit Interviews

‘It’s not just about having a good script... HR professionals have to manage the conversation delicately to create a safe space for employees to share valuable feedback that can help the company improve how it runs.
Use open-ended questions: Avoid asking questions that can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no". Instead, use open-ended questions that encourage the employee to share their thoughts and feelings. Examples of open-ended questions include "What were your biggest challenges while working here?" and "What do you think the company could improve on?"
Probe for more information: When an employee provides a response, follow up with additional questions to get more details. For example, if an employee says they felt unsupported by their manager, ask them to describe specific instances where they felt this way.
Use active listening: Show the employee that you are listening by nodding, summarizing their responses, and asking clarifying questions. This will make the employee feel heard and encourage them to provide deeper responses.
Ask for examples: Ask the employee to provide specific examples that support their responses. This will help you better understand the employee's experience and provide concrete feedback for the company to act on.
Avoid leading questions: Avoid asking questions that suggest a specific answer or are designed to confirm your own assumptions. For example, instead of asking "Did you leave because of your manager?", ask "What factors influenced your decision to leave?".
Create a comfortable environment: Make sure the employee feels comfortable and safe to share their honest feedback. Use a private location for the interview and assure the employee that their responses will be kept confidential.

The main reason for the user's burnout was personal stuff, but also unclear expectations for their role and a lack of feedback. Joining a disorganized team and not knowing what was expected of them hurt their confidence in leadership and their own abilities. To return to the company, the user would need clear role expectations and regular feedback. Improving feedback would involve laying out role expectations and being explicit about vague expectations. The user felt like they were constantly switching projects and didn't have ownership over their work. Despite these challenges, the user enjoyed the people at the company and the flexibility to explore different things. As the company scales, it's important to maintain clear expectations and encourage work-life balance. The user shared their feedback with others, but felt like there was a secretive space for constructive feedback. Additionally, the user expressed concern about a specific individual dominating meetings and potentially ruining the culture for others.
Clarify role expectations and provide regular feedback to employees
Improve communication and address rumors promptly to maintain employees' confidence in leadership
Address difficulty with stakeholder relationships and constantly switching projects to reduce burnout and improve productivity

The user realized that customer success wasn't a good fit for their long-term career goals and would have preferred an opportunity in professional services or a leadership role. They have received feedback on their performance but would have liked more feedback on growth opportunities. The user did not feel that the team's growth was a major issue but recognized that it was changing and being defined. The job itself did not change, but the user's impression of it did. They enjoyed working directly with users and problem-solving specific requests, but would have preferred more technical document building and less outreach. The user felt that the team sync meeting missed an opportunity to make it polished and valuable and was more of a weekly update. They also noted that the way information is shared and collaborated on through Slack channels, emails, and docs may be difficult to scale as the team grows. The user appreciated the highly motivated, competent, and creative team and the focus on efficiency. They have not experienced any major issues at the company other than the role fit. The user appreciates their time at the company and loves the product.
Providing more frequent and detailed feedback on growth opportunities for employees
Evaluating the balance of technical documentation building and outreach responsibilities for employees in customer success roles
Developing a more intentional and polished approach to team meetings, such as the stats and stories meeting
Reevaluating the scalability of communication channels, such as Slack and email, as the team grows in size
