  7. We would very much appreciate your honest feedback on the DePaul Human Resources Exit Survey. Your feedback is vitally important to assist us in analyzing the root causes of turnover and retention. It is also essential in helping us to improve DePaul’s status as an employer of choice. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be treated confidentially and (will not become part of your personnel file). Any data from the exit survey that we share with management will be consolidated with other exit feedback to protect the anonymity of individual responses. Thank you for your cooperation!
