Behavioural Interviewing


Employee selection is the most critical activity in human resource management; and the decision to hire a job applicant is the most important decision an employer will ever make. This is because no amount of motivation will improve performance if the wrong person is selected for the job. This explains the need for organizations to adopt reliable and valid interviewing systems for employee selection.

Unfortunately, traditional interviewing has tended to focus on theoretical questions which elicit theoretical answers. Behavioural interviewing provides a new approach to the practice of interviewing.
