The ideal time to conduct an exit interview could be much sooner than you’d think.

    Having the HR person conduct the exit interview, either at the beginning or at the end of the period of employment d-skills the manager

    Why would KPMG only use "stay" interviews with Female Partners? Is that not sexism with a capital S for stupid?

    @John: Stay interviews would reveal a lot about the barriers, either due to gender or other that would allow these partners to exceed in the workplace. While I see your point about the one-sided nature, it would also be apparent that high level female employees would encounter fairly unique challanges that their male counterparts would not.

    Back to the main point, I think these are a fantastic idea. When I worked with volunteers I'd spend half the interview probing what they wanted to get out of the expeirence of volunteering. It gave me a good chance to align their wants with the area of the organisation (often different from what they were applying for) and weed out those without suitable expectations.
