Have you ever hired someone who did not live up to expectations? Are your managers selecting too many round pegs to fit into square holes? If you hire people for positions who are not good fits, they will struggle to reach optimum performance, to be fully engaged, and are more likely to leave. They will also eat up your time and energy and weaken an entire team.
The key to success is not hiring candidates based on their resume of past success but rather being able to hire someone who will perform well in the required job as well for future assignments.
The interview process should determine if there is a match between the individual and the position. Furthermore, a good process allows you to understand the applicant's behavior, values, motivations, and qualifications. Behavior based interviewing is a tool you can learn and use effectively to select the best fit person for the position.
In this webinar you will learn the essentials of behavioral interviewing: hiring the right people, at the right time, with the right skills, for the right position.
Why should you Attend:
Does your candidate interviewing system consist of proven practices or just a hodgepodge of activities that get into gear when someone says, “I need more people” or “Sally has left, and we need someone to take her place NOW?”
The effectiveness of your hiring practices impacts the effectiveness of the organization. A new hire that does not fit the position will be difficult to develop, will perform poorly and more likely leave resulting in the need to repeat the process. Only when interviewing is approached as a specific methodology with definable steps and measurable results can it be managed to ensure the hiring of quality people.
Smart hiring is more than posting requisitions, screening, and talking with the candidates, checking references, making an offer, etc. It is a series of specific interviewing practices and techniques that can bring in top talent rather than lead to poor hires.
The topics to be covered are:
- Fine-tune your shopping list: Do you know what you need?
