Description: The BC Public Service Exit Survey has been collecting data from employees voluntarily leaving the BC Public Service since April 2006.

The annual responses of those resigning or retiring from public service provide information and insight into factors behind an individual’s decision to leave. Analysis and compilation of the data tracks circumstances and issues that impacted those decisions, thus facilitating future strategies for employee engagement and retention.
