A wrong recruitment can be very expensive for organizations
The job interview is a powerful force in the employee hiring process in most organizations. The crucial step to filling a position is finding the right talent for your organization – someone that has the skills for the job, easily blends with the culture, interacts well with the team and believes in your mission. Interviewing is a two-way street i.e. to recruit the best match for your business, and ensure that the position is best suited for the applicant. That is why effective interviewing and selection needs to be a structured, well-planned process.
Many organizations follow traditional interview techniques for hiring employees. If the objective of your organization’s interviewing process is to find individuals capable of performing with creativity, initiative, and autonomy, who can work as part of a team in pursuit of excellence in providing service, then you can no longer rely on the traditional selection and interviewing techniques. Behavioral Interviewing is a new style of interviewing that more and more organizations are using in their hiring process. The basic premise behind behavioral interviewing is this: the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance in a similar situation. It focuses on experiences, behaviors, knowledge, skills and abilities that are job related. Behavioral interviews are the best tool to identify candidates who have the behavioral traits and characteristics you have determined are essential for success in your open position.
For small businesses that don't have departments devoted to Human Resources, finding the right employees at the right times can be especially time-consuming and frustrating struggle. Thus the expertise of the supervisors and managers in finding the right staff is critical for the success of the organization. The interview is the most important step in the hiring process. With a strategic approach, you can help identify and attract the best talent for your team.
