The interview is your most important recruitment tool in selecting the people who will ultimately determine your organization's success. A poorly conducted interview can result in bad hires and lead to high turnover rates and expensive rehiring costs. By some estimates, it can cost your company two times the employee's salary to replace them. A study found that traditional interviewing predicted future employee success only 10% of the time but behavioral based interviewing improved that rate by over 500%. Statistics show that candidates are five times more likely to succeed in their new workplace if they are interviewed using behaviorally-based questions during the interview.
Behavioral-based interviewing is a technique that leverages the concept that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. Traditional interviewing typically focuses on hypothetical questions rather than revealing the candidate's real past behavior. By using behavioral interviewing techniques, you'll make candidates respond with specific examples rather than generalized responses. In essence, you can learn what the candidate will do if they are hired!
