We’ve all seen it happen – the pleasant and articulate candidate that checks all the boxes during the interview process; they are confident, demonstrate a range of qualities desired for the position and have effective interpersonal communication. However, once selected they present differently than anticipated. The candidate who seemed to know all the technical concepts in the interview lacked the ability to apply them on the job. One of the reasons may be your interview process itself. As HR Professionals, one of our most critical responsibilities is helping hiring managers identify and hire top talent. While there are many different selection tools available to you, one of the most reliable methods is the structured interview process.

The academic research over the last two decades has documented increased predictive validity and reduced adverse impact when structured interviews are part of the selection process.

Having a solid interview guide is not enough – this interactive one day workshop focuses on the key considerations in developing a well-designed structured interview process. When the workshop is complete, participants should have the ability to further understand, integrate and utilize the following learn about:

•Face validity
•Developing behavior-based anchors
•Working with job experts to develop questions and rating criteria
•Training interview panel members
•Common rater biases
•Interview administration best practices
