Don't leave – but if you do, first tell us why you want to

A pilot 'exit interview' scheme has been launched as part of the rewarding and developing staff programme run by human resources. It's hoped to find out why people leave employment with the University, and what lessons can be learned – and applied – from their reasons. 

All staff leaving pilot departments, including transfers within the University and regardless of length of employment, will receive a questionnaire seeking views on their experiences within the workplace – the good, the bad and the ugly.

A percentage of those will be interviewed by human resources or a colleague from their department. The pilot is running in around 20 academic and administrative departments.

Human resources manager Lisa Furlong said: "We hope that by analysing feedback from leavers, we'll be able to identify trends that are having a negative impact upon the workplace. Then we can identify changes which will encourage people to stay, as well as improving the overall well-being and working lives of our staff."
