Interviewing Skills Training for Supervisors and Managers: Prepare Them with Skills to Remove Bias - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to train supervisors and managers to effectively interview job candidates by setting the stage on how to remove bias and make better hiring decisions.

It’s not unusual to find that many HR professionals lack confidence in the supervisors or managers in their organization when it comes to interviewing prospective employees. Equipping managers, supervisors and selection committees with tools to improve the interview and selection process will ensure that the best candidates get hired.

Oftentimes, a manager feels the need to fill a vacant position as soon as possible by quickly going through the process by glancing at resumes; asking rote questions, and selecting a candidate based upon the manager’s personal feelings or biases. The manager may seek to find something in the candidate’s responses, resume, or background that matches the manager’s life experiences (education, schooling, area of the country the applicant resides, etc.)  As a result, implicit bias may have a subtle effect and negative impact in the hiring process.

HR can help by providing training, leading discussions, and facilitating case studies which can greatly enhance the interviewing process. HR can also create its own standard processes, and even provide templates and other resources to follow in the interview.
