Human Resources Exit Interviews Will Be Web-Based Beginning January 6

An exit interview is an invaluable source of information that the university can use to assess the quality of work life and identify opportunities for improving employee retention and engagement.

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.
