Class Description: The cost of a bad hire has been reported (in a survey last Fall of 2700 employers) to be at least $25k with more than a quarter of employers surveyed detailing the cost in excess of $50k. The cost may be even higher when considering a reasonable estimate of the loss of productivity of the right hire. (i.e. opportunity cost.) How does one offset this risk? Behavioral interviewing, when included in the hiring process particularly at the manager and above level, can help you identify the right candidate for the job.
Behavioral interviewing is based on the premise that past behavior and performance will predict future behavior and performance. Crafted correctly, behavioral interviews will allow the interviewer to learn how candidates have actually performed in previous position – information critical for selecting the best candidate.
This class will provide the process to develop, administer and evaluate a behavioral interview – one that can be customized to a specific role. The process will consider the needs of the company, department and position for which you are recruiting. It will provide methods for preparing the interview and working with your hiring managers to ensure the information collected will support the success measures outlined for the position.
This class is targeted to corporate personnel with hiring responsibilities as well as third party recruiters.
In this 90 minute webinar you will learn to:
- Create a behavioral interview for any position.
- Conduct a behavioral interview, including specific behavioral questions.
- Evaluate answers to behavioral interview questions.
- Guide “off-message” candidates; drilling down to relevant, even critical, information
- Use the information collected to help the hiring managers make the best decision.
