Is Your Interviewing Process Broken?

In a previous issue of the Harvard Business Review, Larry Bossidy, the past CEO of AlliedSignal, describes interviewing as "the most flawed process in American business."

Based on over 25 years of experience helping organizations develop and implement competency-based behavioral interviewing training and practices, we couldn't agree more.

More and more of our clients have increased hiring. More and more of our clients utilize an inconsistent and unproven interviewing process that takes too much time and does not produce the desired results.

While we know that hiring the right people significantly decreases costs and increases productivity, fewer and fewer organizations have the skills to interview effectively-they don't have a clear picture of the ideal candidate nor how to ask the questions that will predict employee performance once hired.

We think the problem is obvious.
