Read Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to hiring effective employees the best interview method is undoubtedly the behavioral-based interview format where the interviewee formulates responses to specific situations he/she has actually encountered at the workplace. The concept is that past performance is the best predictor of future performance. This kind of interview format helps employers know what the employee can and cannot do based on assessing past work behaviors. This first training program in the three-part series will focus on the SOAR method (Situation – Obstacle – Action – Result) of behavioral-based interviews to help you make each department at your workplace more productive and efficient by hiring the right employees for the job.

Why Should You Attend:

One study found that traditional interviewing predicted future employee success only 10% of the time but behavioral based interviewing improved that rate by over 500%. Behavioral based interviewing is a wonderful technique that aims to show that past behavior predicts your future behavior. Traditional interviewing focuses solely on hypothetical questions, but fails to analyze the candidate’s past behavior under a different employer, but under a similar job role.

The SOAR method works flawlessly in extracting behavioral attributes of the candidate by asking him/her situational questions that helps employers to pre-determine that candidate’s core competencies that fit perfectly into that particular job’s requirements.

This webinar will provide a specific and simple model for improving interview success that leads to reduced employee turnover and increased retention that eventually leads to effectiveness in hiring and better use of company time. Moreover, by hiring the best employee, you ensure that you boost overall business outcomes in the long run.

This webinar will provide you with the background, tips and tools necessary for integrating behavioral interviewing into your selection process. It will help participants gain firsthand knowledge about how to leverage the power of behavioral based interviews and SOAR questioning to obtain greater outcomes.
