Interviewing Skills for Selecting Talent 2022 - 29 March 2022 (On Demand)


Select the right staff for your organization

In the dawn of the Great Resignation, close to half of our workforce are expected to leave their jobs this year.

How will you select the right candidates for vacancies in your organisation?

This webinar will guide you on how to select staff through proven and reliable methods of competency testing.

Research shows that interviews are often no more reliable than tossing a coin.

Interviewers must ask competency-based questions to choose candidates with the best skills, knowledge, and attitude for the job.

Our employment lawyer will discuss how to comply with the law in job interviews, by avoiding discriminatory questions.

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

  • Ask the right questions to assess a candidate’s skill level, knowledge, attitudes, and values for the job.
  • Prepare for selection using competency mapping to identify the skills, knowledge and attitudes required.
  • 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.
