Ensuring quality of hire is one of the crucial competencies when it comes to developing a culture of excellence and productivity. Job fit and culture fit are both necessary to strengthen the capability of the organization to cope with changes and crises.

This in-person workshop concentrates on the preinterview preparation; developing questions and their value; the interview techniques that get specific, behavior-based examples of past performance; and the strategies that follow through on this process.

This workshop takes the behavioral interview even further with a discussion of communication techniques and the use of other types of interview questions.

At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to

  1. recognize the costs incurred by an organization when a wrong hiring decision is made;
  2. develop a fair and consistent interviewing process for selecting employees;
  3. prepare better job advertisements and use a variety of markets;
  4. develop a job analysis and position profile;
  5. use traditional, behavioral, achievement-oriented, holistic, and situational interview questions;
  6. enhance communication skills that are essential for a skilled recruiter;
