Recruitment benchmarks have become the standard for recruitment and selection processes. We advise selection panels to invest time together before shortlisting to agree on the recruitment benchmarks that they will use to assess candidates.
How you treat job candidates during the selection process has a major impact on how they view your organisation and whether you are seen as an employer of choice. Candidate care is a critical element of the selection process.
There can be serious negative consequences from adopting the “Good Cop/Bad Cop” approach to job interviews. Selection panels can lose respect from GenY’s when using this approach to selection interviews because they do not appreciate “intimidation” and assume that this will carry over to the job context.
Employment equity means treating people fairly – and that may mean treating some people differently from others. It means creating equal opportunities for people.
