Behavioral Interviewing

Course Details

Of all the decisions managers make, none impacts the effectiveness of an organization more profoundly than hiring. Research on interviewing techniques indicates that the consistent application of well-developed hiring criteria leads to higher productivity, reduced turnover and increased employee job satisfaction.

Behavioral Interviewing uses a systematic method of applying objective criteria to the hiring process. It is based on the foundation that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior.

In fact, Behavioral Interviewing is said to be 55% predictive of future behavior, while traditional interviewing is only 10% predictive.

You want to select excellent candidates who are able to do the job, are willing to do the job and are the best fit for the job and your organization's culture.

In this program, you will learn how to develop structured, objective interview and assessment techniques that help determine these factors, as well as predict the true value candidates will bring to your organization.
