NKY SHRM’s May Luncheon

I Quit! A Leaver’s Perspective on Organizational Exit

Organizational exit is a meaningful transition for both a leaver and the organization they are leaving.  My research has taken a leaver-focused perspective in an attempt to better understand not simply “why” people leave jobs, but how they make those decisions and how they share those decisions.  Interestingly, though maybe not surprising, the reasons given don’t always align with the truth. In this presentation, I’ll share some of the general research on exit and then discuss what I have learned from my research on leavers over the years. I’ll share my findings on exit decision-making processes, managing announcements, and what organizations can learn from their leavers.

Stephanie earned her Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Missouri—Columbia and her M.A. from the University of Cincinnati.

Stephanie’s research focuses on the process of organizational exit. Her work examines how individuals make decisions to exit and how they announce those exits.  At NKU, she teaches courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in organizational communication, research methods, and principles of informatics.
