Raising the Bar with Structured Interviewing

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

Structured Interviewing is a standard practice for evaluating candidates based on the needs of specific job requirements and functions. The standard and repeatable process ’SI’ unpacks has proven to help companies create a level playing field for job candidates, and work as a safeguard to prevent teams (and individuals) from making bad hiring decisions.

When ‘SI’ is introduced effectively, technical recruiters are able to more easily identify false-positive and false-negative hiring decisions when they surface, and use interview-feedback data to intelligibly navigate and affect the decision-making process. SI also enables a centralized hiring function that is conducive to widening an organization’s resources and bandwidth for hiring.

Additionally, SI is proven to:

  • Raise quality standard(s) for assessing candidates
  • Promote fungibility across teams
  • Reduce ambiguity through adoption of common language (used for evaluation)

  • Revisit the main benefits of structured interviewing
  • Explore some best-practices to mitigate false-negative outcomes
  • Learn to identify and handle subjective and subconscious bias
