Retention of talent often begins at the end of the process. Chances are, an employee who is walking out the door will be more honest and forthcoming than a person who still depends on your company for a paycheck. But in order to ensure truly effective exit interviews, a leader must establish a climate of trust long before he receives the letter of resignation. Often the exit interview is an excellent forum—albeit a bit too late—to uncover underlying issues or concerns that may be worthy of considering improvement on before you lose another employee potentially for the same reason.
