In a study conducted at The University of Michigan on the “Validity and Utility of Alternative Predictors of Job Performance”, the usefulness of the interview in accurately predicting later success on the job was analysed. The surprising finding: The typical interview increases the likelihood of choosing the best candidate by less than 2%. In other words, if you just “flipped” a coin you would be correct 50% of the time. If you added an interview you would only be right 52% of the time. We encourage clients to adopt a proven structured assessment process, using bespoke competency-based interview questioning techniques, created and moulded around a job specification. We promote the use of psychometric testing, aptitude and skills testing. People first have many years of experience and employ qualified CIPD professionals and qualified Occupational Psychologists who can assist in ensuring you adopt the most effective selection process.
