When it comes to searching for a new employee, the stakes are high. Financially speaking, most companies believe bad hires cost them thousands of dollars and months of time! Hiring the wrong person is not only costly, it can cause mental and emotional stress for all your employees. 

We often assume our best managers will also be our best interviewers. While they may know the skills needed for the job role; they often don't know the best techniques and strategies to determine which candidates are the best fit for your company. With a little training, guidance and practice, any hiring manager can be the “expert” interviewer you expect them to be.

Whether you are an experienced or novice interviewer, you will learn key strategies to conduct your next interview!

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Identify what questions to ask and what questions NOT to ask during an interview.
  • Avoid legal pitfalls.
  • Create a matrix to objectively evaluate and compare a candidate's responses.
  • Implement an effective strategy for documenting the interview process.
  • Confidently make a decision to hire the right candidate.
