Hiring the right people can be quite tricky. Unstructured interviews (those that don’t follow a set format) where you just ‘go with the flow’ stand as little as 30% chance of success. Factor in the high cost of recruiting the wrong person (interviewing time, recruitment fee, on-boarding, induction, team familiarisation, client relationships etc) and you’ll agree it pays to be prepared!
By asking the same questions of every interviewee and making sure they are evidence-based (based on past performance rather than hypothetical answers) you can more easily make the best hiring decision and vastly improve your chances of recruiting the right person.
