|Retaining talent, the ultimate goal of on-boarding,
stay and exit
interviews, is recognised as being of great importance to the competitiveness and sustainability of organisations.
the area continues to attract much research effort and discussion. We believe that it is important for interviews to be based
solidly on empirical research and so we regularly review the latest literature to ensure that our approach and exit
interviews incorporate the best and most up to date ideas.
Below is a collection of news articles covering our own
findings and a list of some of the best articles and books on staff turnover,
retention and exit interviews. In the spirit of "discovery and understanding" it
is our pleasure to share them with you:
