(WSQ) Competency-Based Interview & Selection

Recruitment & Selection Techniques: Hiring the Right People

For an organisation to remain successful, build the right culture and reduce excessive people issues, it is critical to have an effective hiring process. To do so, interviewers need to be trained to ensure careful selection of the right candidate for the jobs. In addition, with the impending move by the government to enshrine fair employment guidelines into workplace anti-discriminatory laws, it becomes necessary that the interviewers carry out their hiring roles in accordance to fair employment practices.

This workshop aims to equip HR practitioners and hiring managers with skills on how to identify relevant selection criteria, carry out competency-based interviews and selection, and document hiring decisions properly.

At the end of the programme, participants will be able to:

  • Identify selection criteria for hiring the right candidate based on organisational and job requirement
  • Review curriculum vitae (CVs) to shortlist appropriate candidates for interviewing
  • Apply competency-based interview techniques to gather information for making hiring decision
  • Manage the interview process with confidence and engage the candidates appropriately
  • Record their hiring decision clearly and appropriately in compliance to fair employment practices

This course is part of the HR Courses series on Coursemology.
