My Dept always has an exit interview for people leaving our employ. We take them seriously as we can only improve by listening to the reasons why people leave. But I have to add, in the 18 yrs I’ve been with the dept, we’ve only had 4 quit, 1 retire and 1 fired. Our people stay with us because we treat them very well, give them the tools they need, and stay the **** out of their way. One thing we do is meet quarterly with every employee and do an employment assessment. This finds out if they are frustrated, what tools they need or want, and we find out what is expected from the employer and the employee. Pay raises are straight across the board as we are a local government agency. I am always happy for someone in my employ to better themselves. Even if that means the leave our dept. I hate to lose anyone but if they are seeking other opportunities I wish them success. Managers can’t take someone bettering themselves personally. People have to do what makes them happy and what takes care of their families.
