Gain greater comparability with standardisation

Interview is one of the most popular tools for recruiting and HR development. In a study by Armoneit et al. (2020), 73 % of companies use interviews as part of their recruiting process. It’s essential to conduct interviews in a structured and standardised way in order to receive information for fair, objective and reliable decision-making.

This means defining the requirements for a position in advance so that it is clear which competencies should be observed in the interview. Relevant questions and behavioural anchors are then specifically developed for these characteristics. With their help, it is possible to assess how strongly a characteristic is developed in an applicant.

On a scale of one to five, a box is ticked to indicate whether the desired behaviour was clearly evident (5) or not evident (1). Gradations in between are also possible. A combination of a question and behavioural anchor might look like this:

We take care of the design, implementation and training

ELIGO designs structured interviews in accordance with DIN 33430. On request, we can assign consultants to conduct the interviews with your candidates. We also offer observer coaching and training for your HR professionals.

Combine interview guidelines with online assessments

We can create a structured interview guideline in real time that reflects the individual results of the online assessment. The guideline is available immediately after the assessment is completed. Depending on the results, questions are selected from a standardised question pool. This allows both you and the job applicant to determine how well the job and skills match.

The predictive value of a structured interview and online assessment is particularly high. We explain why briefly in this video:
