Interviewing Skills for Selecting Talent 2023 - 14 February 2023 (On Demand)


Select the right staff for your organization

The Great Resignation has led to many employers recruiting new staff to fill vacancies.

Find out how to select staff that are the right fit for the job, your team and organisation.

While many employers rely on interviews, research shows these are often no more reliable than tossing a coin.

This webinar will guide you on how to improve the quality of your interviewing. Interviewers must ask competency-based questions to choose candidates with the best skills, knowledge, and attitude for the job. Our employment lawyer will give guidance on how to avoid discriminatory questions.

Discover how to select staff through proven and reliable methods of competency testing.

Join us in this practical webinar so you can learn how to:

  • Ask the right questions to assess a candidate’s competencies, skill level, knowledge, attitudes, and values for the job.
  • Identify and manage unconscious biases, which can lead to the wrong hiring decisions.
  • Detect possible deception and toxic behaviours in interviews and reference checking.
  • Explore other reliable selection methods – ask the candidate to perform tasks or engage in a pre-employment trial.
  • Comply with the law to avoid unlawful discrimination.
