Exit Interview

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey in regard to your time at Elle Marie and your decision to leave the company.

As we continue working hard in navigating our salon business through COVID-19, we are learning more and more that the state of our industry is dramatically changing. In turn, this naturally means our salon company is changing right along with the industry.

With that, we need to stay up to date on what we can do to continue our efforts in providing a safe place where stylists can build upon their desire to grow a career in hairdressing. We understand a stylist’s desire to branch out and do not want to discourage our stylists from growing both personally and professionally in the direction that best suits the individual.

More importantly, we need to understand this at a level that is beyond our own four walls.

It will always be extremely important to us at Elle Marie to continue to be a market leader salon. We need to understand what is working, what is not and what we can be doing differently, in real time, to continue the momentum of amplifying the industry by growing salon professionals in a team-based setting.

Again, thank you for your time at Elle Marie and taking that experience in mind while you fill out this “exit interview” survey. You are welcome to stay anonymous however if you allow it, we would love the opportunity to reach out to you for any clarification, questions, or guidance as we move forward.

Please be as open & honest as you can. If any of your answers changed due to COVID-19 please be sure to specify this as it will be pertinent information as we navigate through this new territory
