Abstract or Summary
  • A great deal of prior research has investigated the nature, causes, and consequences of voluntary employee turnover. However, one critical and seldom explored facet of this process is the exit interview – a tool that many companies use to gain insight into why an employee is quitting his or her job. Moreover, prior literature has largely assumed that employees are honest in exit interviews, despite the fact that there are many reasons that employees may be motivated to be dishonest in their exit interview process. As such, the effectiveness of exit interviews is not well understood. In this study, I explore how often employees provide false reasons for their resignation when they quit, and inductively identify a taxonomy that captures the reasons why employees are dishonest in exit interviews among a sample of individuals who had recently resigned from a job in the last 12 months. My results indicate that employees’ reasons for lying fall within nine different categories and that wanting to keep a good reference and avoiding upsetting managerial staff were the most common reasons.
