Are Exit Interviews Out of Fashion?





My wife just left her job after 20 years for a great new opportunity. As we were packing up her stuff, I was surprised to hear that her employer hadn’t scheduled an exit interview. Then again, thinking back, I don’t think any of my former employers did either.

It’s one of those things I’ve heard of, but I don’t think I know anyone who’s ever gotten one.

Are they something that was once popular but now out of fashion?

Anyway, my wife was mostly happy at her last job, but I think she had a few suggestions her old employer would’ve found useful or at least illuminating. And just the idea of an exit interview was enough to generate this cartoon.
