  • Introduction

    Many organizations worldwide use Competency based interviewing skills as an essential element of their employee selection process to ensure the best-fit hiring and thus minimize their risk of a wrong hire. Professional interviewing techniques are vital for a fair, objective and accurate assessment of potential future employees. Competency Based Interviewing minimizes subjectivity in the interview process and helps interviewers in focusing for the right fit for the job than being distracted by biases, personal preferences or superficial judgments. The outcome is selection of the best candidates suitable for the position.

    This one-day workshop will enhance participants' skills, knowledge and confidence in recruitment & selection decisions they make, and provide them a comprehensive perspective and practical understanding of Competency Based Interviewing, thus equipping them with the techniques required to make objective and evidence-based evaluations while interviewing potential future employees.
