Title:Employee Turnover and the Exit Interview
Author(s):Neal, James G.
Subject(s):Library personnel management
Abstract:Employee turnover is an important measure of the health of an organization. All libraries should implement a three-step program of turnover management: the collection and analysis of data on turnover patterns, the identification of those factors contributing to turnover in the library through organization of a formal exit interview program, and implementation of remedial actions which address the main causes of turnover. This article focuses on the exit interview as an effective tool for documenting the causes of turnover in a library and for influencing management action. The exit interview must be based upon a standardized format, assure employee confidentiality, employ talented interviewing staff, involve periodic assessment of effectiveness, and provide for routine feedback to management.
