Why Interviews Are Not Enough

After two decades in recruitment, I've witnessed the limitations of relying solely on interviews. In today's sports and business worlds, character and chemistry are becoming crucial factors beyond education, skills, and experience.

In search of the perfect blend of talent that leads to a synergistic whole, how do we identify, develop, train, and coach the ideal team? CollabGenius has the answers. With CollabGenius, you get a one-of-a-kind and budget-friendly solution that goes beyond mere first impressions. You know how to build chemistry!

Overcoming Limitations of Interviews

  • Unconscious bias seeps into interviews, leading to inconsistent quality hires and overlooking qualified candidates.
  • Interviews have limited predictive validity. Meta-analyses conducted by researchers have consistently found that interviews have low predictive validity regarding future job performance.
  • Interviewing is a costly process. When there are multiple recruiters from various departments on the interview panel, there are huge costs attached to this.
  • Unethical behaviour in interviews, Interviewers are often biased in evaluating applicants. The negative interviewer bias is when interviewers have a negative opinion of an applicant before they even start interviewing them, referred to as the horn effect.
