Resourcing Talent and Competency Based Interviewing


Many organisations place over-reliance on a traditional, CV-based interview. Research has shown that this approach has a 20% probability of identifying accurately how the candidate will behave on the job, were they to be selected. A better approach, one more likely to provide an accurate reflection of potential behaviour, is the competency-based interview.
