One in four don't listen

A new survey by recruitment consultancy Robert Walters of 1,000 hiring managers and professionals in Australia and New Zealand revealed that a quarter of companies don’t use the feedback from exit interviews.

The firm’s white paper The Exit Process: How to Gain Valuable Insights to Build a Better Workplace reports that eight out of 10 employees offer honest feedback during the exit interview process, and while most employers – some 75% of those surveyed – said they used it to make improvements to the business, one in four said it was “filed away with the candidate’s resignation letter”.

Other notable outcomes from the survey were that a third of professionals who resign do so because they no longer feel challenged, and that half those surveyed said they would raise their concerns before searching for a new role.
