Competency Based Interviews For Improved Hiring Effectiveness

Leading international provider of Human Capital Management systems, Kenexa, has announced the UK launch of Kenexa Interview Builder™. The
Kenexa Interview Builder™ system empowers organisations to conduct job specific, structured competency based interviews and so assess candidates with greater accuracy, objectivity and consistency.

Existing and new job roles can be analysed to determine the core competencies required to perform them successfully. Interview questions can then be custom-selected from 45 different competency groups, spanning a library of more than 1,400 questions.

The resulting interview will include behavioural, situational, attitudinal and job knowledge questions that encourage candidates to speak freely about their competencies. Kenexa Interview Builder™ also provides guidelines for rating candidate responses.

Commenting on the launch Vernon Bryce, VP UK Operations, noted, “For too many organisations, the quality of interviewing varies from post to post, from interviewer to interviewer. There are few fair and consistent standards applied across the organisation. Kenexa Interview Builder™ helps interviewers develop professional HR practices for conducting accurate structured employment interviews, improving hiring effectiveness, complementing other forms of assessment.”

Kenexa Interview Builder™ contains built-in training covering job analysis, competency determination, structured interview building, and interview technique.
