Recruitment & Selection Training

Course Overview

Behaviour Interviewing is a very reliable and valid candidate selection technique. While we all may say that past behaviour is the best indicator of future behaviour, we don’t act as if we believe this when we are interviewing candidates—often because we aren’t certain how to ask questions that will tell us about past performance.

This workshop concentrates on the pre-interview preparation, developing questions and their value, the interview techniques that get specific, behaviour-based examples of past performance, and the strategies that follow through on this process.

This workshop includes dynamic trainee/trainer interactions and discussions, written and oral exercises, voice recordings, case studies, reflection, quizzes and a workbook for each participant to take back to the workplace.

Target Audience

Everyday managers and staff who recruit employees and who need to increase their abilities in selecting the best possible staff for the position.
