Page 1: Exit Questionnaire

Queen Mary values its employees and recognises the importance of understanding why employees leave the University. 


Gathering information about employees' reasons for leaving can provide the University with invaluable data about its employment practices, management style and any treatment perceived by employees as being unsatisfactory or unfair. The University may use the information gathered in this exit questionnaire to identify reasons for employee turnover and improvements the organisation can make for the future workforce; this may include in relation to Charter marks such as Athena SWAN.


The University treats personal data collected from the exit questionnaire in accordance with its data protection policy. Information about how your data is used and the basis for processing your data is provided in the University’s privacy notice for staff.


This exit questionnaire is a useful tool for collecting information at an organisational level in an efficient and accessible way. This does not, however, replace the exit interview and we do still encourage managers to informally meet with staff so that they may gather local feedback to inform local decision-making. We also encourage staff to have open and honest discussions with their line manager or an alternate before they leave. 


As the questionnaire is for general feedback and reported on periodically for statistical purposes only, unfortunately we are not able to provide individual feedback or responses. Where you would like a response, please do raise these with your line manager or your HR Adviser or HR Partner in the Human Resources Department. 


This questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire.
