Case Study – Interviewing for Selection (Business Integration Technologies Limited)
An intensive one day programme for individuals whose organisations have no clear policy or procedures on Recruitment and Selection. The best practice selection process was covered and delegated were introduced to the most recent research in the method of behavioural interviewing. The course ended with hints and tips from a tutor who is an experienced interviewer and delegates took away an in-depth binder of extensive handouts which covered the structure, legal issues affecting recruitment and selection and the psychology of interviewing staff.
“We are a small company with a requirement to recruit and retain high quality staff. We realised that our “interview techniques” needed to be more focused on gaining real evidence of an ability to do a job. Techniques to get that evidence were what we were looking for. The course gave us some fundamental methods that made good sense, were practical, and easy to apply. Since then our interviewing process has become much more refined with a good success rate for quickly eliminating those candidates not suitable for the role, based on evidence rather than just gut feel.
Behaviour Interviewing seems to be all about asking questions that require an explanation of the “truth” backed up with “evidence”. We have found this to be a good overall management tool!”
