    “Beyond Behavioral Interviewing: The Next Evolution”

    • For the past 20 years, most employers have relied on behavioral interviewing techniques to identify promising job applicants. Unfortunately, behavioral questions screen people in highly predictable ways and encourage hiring decisions based more on an applicant’s presentation skills rather than on the only reliable predictor of future performance — the person’s actual past performance and achievements.
    • Achievement-based interviews and evidence-based selection facilitate quality hiring decisions across-the-board. Participants will learn why achievements and evidence are today’s most important hiring metrics, how to incorporate these techniques into their selection process, as well as the five specific questions interviewers can use to discover important facts and truths about every applicant.
