Behavioral interviews help better identify the right candidate for the job. A survey by CareerBuilder found that 69 percent of organizations have been adversely affected by a bad hire in the past year. A bad hire was considered someone with any of the following issues: poor performance, failure to get along with others, negative attitude, attendance problems, and complaints from customers. The consequences included any of the following: lost productivity, time required to hire and train another person, drag on morale throughout the department or organization, loss of sales, and legal issues.

A survey by Robert Half Finance & Accounting found that poor performance was the No. 1 reason that resulted in a failed hire. A poor skills match was the second most-cited reason. In addition, failed hires result from a “culture clash,” where the new hire doesn’t fit in with the company culture. Behavioral interviewing is an evidence-based approach for ensuring you hire the right person for the job, effectively minimizing all of these potential problems.

This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar covers how to better interview candidates to find the right talent. This program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
