Exit Interviews: Worthwhile procedure for human resources?

The case study:

Exit Interviews are conducted by many employers with employees who are leaving the firm for any reason. These are interviews, usually conducted by a human resource professional just prior to the employee leaving. The assumption is that the employee will be candid because he or she is leaving. However, the information one gets is more likely to be questionable. Researchers found that at the time of separation, 38% of those leaving blamed salary and benefits, and only 4% blamed supervision.
