Made any poor hires lately? Have you hired individuals despite red flags? Do your interviewers follow the right hiring processes? Do they focus overly on technical fit, or chase down irrelevant leads? Would you want to make your hiring process more effective, and enable recruiters to make the best choice?
The hiring process in any organisation involves having conversations with applicants to understand their qualifications and also assess whether they are a ‘fit’ for your corporate culture. However, most interviewers do not demonstrate the acumen to conduct interviews. Not surprising, because nobody outside of HR trains for interviews! Usually, interviewers go with their gut instinct, or get into irrelevant details, and usually end up with wrong recommendations. Interviewing, particularly in larger organizations, becomes a roulette (Russian if the hire is particularly bad). So, there’s a pressing need to stop gambling with your hires and train recruiting managers to be better interviewers.
Interviewing Simulations is an effective solution since this works well as a training format. They are a very effective mechanism for interviewers to learn, apply, and experience the process within a simulated environment. The interviewer learns how to engage with a virtual candidate, conduct an effective interview, and gauge the interviewee’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as their fitment for the position.
