5 Qualities to Seek Out in an Interviewer

Hiring the right employee is very crucial to any business because a bad recruitment can result in loss of money, time, and performance of the company.  A new recruitment involves certain costs such as hiring, training and the cost of low productivity during the learning process.

Identifying a potential candidate who could contribute to the growth of the organization is a difficult job, and the recruiters have to keep certain factors in mind while reviewing the candidature of applicants during the process of interview.

Here are some major factors in which you should place focus when hiring new talent.

  • Competence:  The manager has to assess the candidates based on their skill sets and understand whether or not they would be able to accomplish the tasks that the positions demand.
  • Accountability: Not every employee is willing to take additional responsibilities and have a desire to grow with the company.  Identifying those qualities in a new candidate during the interview process can be challenging, but a correct decision makes a lot of difference in the long run.
  • Compatibility: The success of an organization depends largely on how its employees get along with each other and also with the clients.  An employee failing to adhere to the basic norms can have an adverse affect on the overall performance of the organization.
  • Commitment: An employee can be a great asset for the company if he or she is willing to be part of the process for a long term.  Past track records of the individual provides a clear insight about the approach the person has toward his or her job.
  • Remuneration:  It’s mandatory that new recruits agree to the packages offered to them and are satisfied with them.  If not, then it would pose a lot of problems for the company as the employees would be dissatisfied and may not perform as expected.

In the end, it all boils down to your ability to judge a person based on the limited information you have during the process of hiring, but a right decision will save you the hassle of going through the process all over again. Focus in on these qualities and base your interview questions off of them. This should steer you in the right direction.
