The exit interview can be a further mechanism to operationalize compliance. This type of interview is used when someone voluntarily departs from a company, as opposed to a lay-off or reduction in force exercise. Typically departing employees are more willing to share about their experiences, concerns and issues which led to their employment departure.

Three key takeaways:

  1. The exit interview is an excellent opportunity to obtain information to inform your compliance program.
  2. Use the exit interview to create advocates from departing employees.
  3. Use the exit interview for probing and insightful questions around compliance.
