Exit Survey Working Group

Exit surveys offer valuable information about why faculty and staff leave the university. More importantly, they have the potential to provide insight to the campus on opportunities to retain employees. Currently, there is no universal exit survey instrument used across the campus and no centralized capturing of workforce data to evaluate themes and actionable insights for improvement. In an effort to establish and institutionalize exit surveys as an important part of the employee separation process and as an opportunity to glean meaningful information about employees’ experiences at Illinois, Illinois Human Resources and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are partnering to establish a climate-focused exit survey working group.
