COMPETENCY INTERVIEW

Competency-based interview guides provide managers with questions that measure key qualities and drivers of performance.  The guides provide clear standards for evaluating responses and for scoring, which help managers significantly reduce bias and effectively use their time.

INTERACTIVE INTERVIEW

Tired of repeating the same questions for each interview? Interactive interviews create an engaging and fun experience for both candidates and managers! This allows candidates to “choose their own adventure.” They select a phrase and the manager reads the corresponding question. Each of the three phrases are linked to questions that measure the same competency equally.

Structured Interviews Help You…

  • Improve accuracy. Base hiring decisions on observable, measurable information rather than intuition or ‘gut feeling.’
  • Increase fairness. Structured interview guides contain standardized questions that ensure candidates have equal opportunity to provide information and are judged fairly only on what is relevant to job performance.
  • Ensure consistency. Assess each candidate on the same criteria with a standardized process across your company; scoring is based on pre-determined benchmarks important to your organization.

  • Confidently compare candidates. Standard criteria for evaluating candidates makes comparison easier and reduces subjectivity.
  • Measure potential to perform the job and live your culture. Ask job-related questions that measure competencies and values important to consistently executing your brand across jobs and locations.
  • Provide legal defensibility. Consistent and documented processes keep managers out of the weeds by using a pre-determined set of legally vetted questions to reduce the risk of legal complaints.
