Learn the "SOAR" method for creating Behavioral based questions

What is the cost of a bad hire? Imagine the impact poor selection has on customer care, annoyed and irritated coworkers, possible litigation, rehiring cost, damaged reputation, not to mention lost sleep. A short interview with a poor hiring decision can lead to months and years of frustration. There are no guarantees but there are best practices that help hire great employees and manage risk.

The interview is our most important selection tool yet traditional interviewing has only a 10% success rate of predicting on-the-job behavior – apparently we aren’t as good at judging behavior as we think. Fortunately we can improve this predictability by over 500% with Behaviorally Based Interviewing. Our hiring decisions ultimately determine our business success and it is critical that we maximize our efforts.

Behavioral based interviewing is a wonderful technique that aims to show that past behavior predicts your future behavior. Traditional interviewing focuses solely on hypothetical questions, but fails to analyze the candidate’s past behavior under a different employer, but under a similar job role.

The SOAR method on the other hand works flawlessly in extracting behavioral attributes of the candidate by asking him/her situational questions that helps employers to pre-determine that candidates core competencies that fit perfectly into that particular job’s requirements.

The SOAR method works like this:

  • Situation: Briefly contextualizing a real life situation that you actually experienced in your past employment.
  • Obstacles/Opportunities: Defining the problems that came in your way while chasing a goal/target.
  • Action: The specific workarounds you formulated to overcome those obstacles/opportunities.
  • Results: Sharing the quantifiable and qualitative outcomes of your decisions and actions.

This webinar by expert speaker Wes Pruett provides a specific and simple model for improving interview success that leads to reduced employee turnover and increased retention that eventually leads to effectiveness in hiring and better use of company time.
