The Knoxville Human Resources team is revamping the exit interview process to better collect and analyze this vital information. Beginning January 6, Human Resources will begin using an automated, web-based exit interview process. Employees who are leaving the university will be sent a link to an exit interview questionnaire. The questionnaire will take less than 10 minutes to complete and all responses will be kept confidential. The survey will be accessible from a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, or a mobile phone.
The new electronic process will help Human Resources and campus administrators better understand the causes of attrition so they can assist with developing and retaining high-performing employees. If you have questions about exit interviews or other employee retention strategies, contact Nate Taylor in Employee Relations at 865-974-6686.
