Advanced Values-based Recruitment Skills

training recruitmentAlthough most organisations use a form of competency based interviewing which has raised the quality of staff being recruited, we often find that the cultural fit can be hit and miss.

This is often borne out by customer and colleague feedback. Very few companies use values or culture based interviewing which is critical to attract and identify staff that already share the company’s values and exhibit the right attitudes and behaviours from day one.

Using the insights from Neuro-linguistic Programming, we are able to embed values, behavioural and attitudinal requirements within job ads, role descriptions, recruitment question templates and HR procedures such that inappropriate candidates are easily filtered out and the candidates with the best cultural fit are attracted and identified.

Recruiting staff who match the role’s required underlying behavioural preference patterns

Customer Service/Sales Example:

  • Understanding what makes a person tick, and what are the key characteristics that make successful customer service/sales staff for your business
  • Identifying the core qualities, desired behaviours and attributes for customer service/sales roles using NLP Meta programmes
  • How to word role profiles and ads that attract the right candidates, and briefing of agencies
  • Refining your own judgement by asking laser questions to identify best fit candidates in interviews
