Duration . 2 days (16hrs)



Competency Based Interview (CBI) is an interview technique used to identify and assess the transferable skillsets, abilities, experience and mindset of candidates required for a particular job. Working on the premise that the best predictor of future performance can be assessed through
an individual’s past behaviour, CBI is widely used for hiring, retention or reassignment.


Whether you are a new or experienced hiring manager, in this two-day workshop you will learn how to define what drives performance and the competencies required to achieve performance. You will be taught how to craft questions around competencies and set an interview framework around the questions, as well as address the common mistake of hiring based on experience.
