Effective Interviewing Techniques -

How to avoid costly hiring mistakes and secure the talent you need

avoid mistakes.jpg


We all know that a business is only as good as the people in it so hiring the right people is key to successful growth.

We also know that a poor hiring decision can be very costly and disruptive to teams - as well as very stressful for all parties. The problem is that it can be very difficult to get the whole picture of a candidate in just an hour or two of interviewing. Some candidates also interview very well, then prove to be the wrong fit once in place.

While interviewing can seem like a dark art there are some simple tips and tricks that anybody can learn to become a better interviewer and avoid costly hiring mistakes. This is great news as many hiring decisions may come from people who have limited experience interviewing and little to no training.

Who is this workshop designed for?

  • HR & Internal Recruiters wishing to improve their selection skills
  • Hiring Managers and Line Managers involved in the recruitment process
  • Business Owners & Directors committed to getting the right people on-board
  • Recruitment Consultants who want better placement and retention rates

What useful stuff will you take away with you?

  • You will find out why we sometimes make poor hiring choices and how to avoid them.
  • You will be equipped with a good understanding of non-verbal signs and how to interpret them - seeing through the words.
  • You will be equipped with some great questioning techniques that help to unearth the truth and not what the candidate wants you to hear.
  • You will learn how to listen to what is unsaid and hear the real meaning of what is.
  • You will learn some simple NLP techniques which will enable you to communicate in the same 'language' as candidates - resulting in better understanding.
  • You will learn how to supplement your gut instinct and how the interview 'feels' with some scientifically proven checks to avoid falling foul of interviewer/interviewee bias.
  • You will leave equipped with some standard questions you can incorporate into your interview process (or create an effective process if you haven't got one).
  • You will be confident that you can determine the best candidate for the role while minimising the likelihood of later problems.
  • You will get the chance to meet with industry peers to network and share best practice.
  • A buffet lunch and refreshments.
  • You will have some fun with it! We spend too much time at work for it to be boring and I find that I retain information much more easily if I'm laughing along the way and enjoying myself.

 Here's a testimonial from one of our recent workshops:

I am the Finance Manager at the University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union.  Sarah recently delivered Interview Techniques training to a number of our staff.

The training given was great fun, easy to absorb and very insightful.  For me it was like finding the missing piece of the jigsaw.  I believe everything I learnt will only improve our recruitment process, with the main aim being to find the best people for our organisation.   

I have already passed on the information gained to my team and we will definitely be implementing the techniques learnt when recruiting in the future.

Thank you Sarah!
