HRCI-Approved Essential HR Series: WABA Interview Design
Date(s) - 09/20/2013
8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Workplace Application: This workshop will provide HR/OD specialists, supervisors and managers with an in-depth understanding of the various elements of Waypoint Advanced Behavioral Assessment (WABA) and how these elements can be incorporated into the design of a highly predictive executive/employee screening process.
Using traditional interviews, companies on average have about 1 in 5 chance of identifying that exceptional performer. This means that 4 out of 5 candidates selected are either average or poor performers. Using our WABA advanced screening procedure, selection professionals will be able to easily triple those odds.
This full-day, interactive and hands-on workshop is designed for Human Resources and Organizational Development (HR/OD) professionals who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the WABA screening process. At the end of the program, participants will be able to design their own screening interviews for any mission-critical position.
Designed to be fun and engaging, this course is specifically customized for those involved in the executive/employee screening process. Starting from a step-by-step guide to effective job analysis, the creation of an accurate job description, mapping of key KSAOs to individual questions, to the creation of Waypoint’s proprietary scoring algorithm, participants will walk away with the necessary knowledge to design and validate behavioral interviews for any given job. ***This course is intended to be conceptual; thus, no background in statistics is required.
Successful completion of this course will signify competency in the following areas:
- Understanding of major flaws behind traditional interviews
- Research and rationale behind the design, use and validation of the WABA
- Key elements of the WABA screening procedure
- Overview of the WABA scoring algorithm
