What are Competency-Based Behavioral Interviews?

Competency-Based interviews are a form of an interview where the interviewer uses a set of fixed questions about past behavior to identify whether the candidate has the required skills for the position.

The interviewer asks the applicant a series of questions about their skills, experience, and qualifications, and the applicant answers accordingly. The employer can then judge the applicant based on how well the applicant answers those questions.

If your interview with a new employee reveals that they have difficulty managing stress, you will know to take this into account when designing your onboarding program. The information gathered during the interview can help you determine which areas the employee will need support with in the future.

The better you understand someone's strengths and weaknesses, the more you can treat them as an individual. Ultimately, this makes it much more likely that your new recruit will be satisfied and productive, and that they'll stay with the company.
