The traditional job interview has remained unchanged for decades. But there is a growing call for innovation. A recent LinkedIn Talent Trends Report found that half of UK respondents said that changes to interview techniques are ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ important to the future of hiring.
A new world of talent is here. And it seems we need a new-age interview process to meet the changing needs of candidates and employers. So, how does your current process measure up? Are you truly assessing candidates? Or just going through the motions?
The traditional interview is time-consuming, leaves plenty of room for bias, and relies heavily on the skill of the interviewer to obtain a clear assessment of a candidate. In short, it’s a hit and miss process.
Thankfully, this picture is changing. New interview techniques are helping to tackle the problems that traditional interview methods can throw up.
Virtual reality assessments, job auditions, and casual interviews are just some of the tools helping employers to develop a more rounded picture of individual candidates. Allowing organisations to see people in ‘real-life’ scenarios to achieve a better understanding of their capabilities.
With Kelly you not only engage the right talent, you ensure they are the right fit for your organisation.
