Exit Survey


The BC Public Service Exit Survey complements the Work Environment Survey by providing a systematic evaluation of why employees are resigning and retiring from the BC Public Service.

The BC Public Service Exit Survey has been conducted on an ongoing basis since 2007.

Key Questions

The responses of employees who are resigning or retiring from public service provide insight into factors behind employees' decisions to leave. Analysis and compilation of the data tracks circumstances and issues that impacted their reasons for departure, thus facilitating future strategies for employee engagement and retention. The findings fit broadly under six key questions:

1. Under what circumstances are respondents resigning or retiring from the BC Public Service?
2. What are the respondents’ levels of engagement when resigning or retiring?
3. What factors contributed to respondents’ decision to resign or retire?
4. What can be done differently to retain respondents?
5. What makes the BC Public Service a good place to work?
6. What is the demographic breakdown of those resigning or retiring?
