Many organisations now use a combination of selection methods to assist selection decisions - but the traditional selection interview still dominates the selection process. However, it appears that few organisations have established standards for selection procedures, with many using a range of selection methods in a very ad hoc fashion. This training pack has been designed to assist managers to review their current approach to interviewing, and to draw on an accumulation of research evidence about interviewing, in determining a corporate policy within their company.
