Fix Your Interview Process to Hire Right with Behavioral Interviewing


Behavioral interviews have been increasing in popularity with HR professionals and recruiters, and for good reason. A study found that traditional interviewing predicted future employee success only 10 percent of the time, whereas behavioral-based interviewing improved the success rate by over 500 percent. Behavioral interviewing is a technique that leverages the concept that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. If you’re still using traditional interviewing techniques by focusing on hypothetical questions instead of uncovering the candidate’s real past behavior, you need to fix your outdated interview process before it’s too late.

Learn how to increase your success rate and hiring effectiveness in this webinar by human resources and management expert Bob Verchota. Verchota will share the "SOAR" method for creating behavioral based questions, and show you how to uncover the “real” person through 43 behavioral-based questions. He will reveal his top 10 tips for interviewers, along with 15 key competencies that you can add to your job descriptions and include in your interviews. He will explain the source of interviewer rater errors so that you know how to avoid them, and share a list of 338 useful interview questions to help you evaluate and find better candidates.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to use behavioral interviewing to achieve increased success and effectiveness in hiring, which in turn will increase employee retention and minimize 'turnover'.
