So by now, you have heard about Values-Based Recruitment, but how do you implement this into your recruitment process?
The first thing you will need to know before you can implement Values Based Recruitment into your process is what your Core Business Values are once you know these then you can implement Values Based Recruitment. From my experience working within the Health Care Industry a lot of organisations have one or more of the below following values:
These values can mean different things to each organisation and how they are interpreted by organisations can be very different, here is a Values-Based Recruitment Question that you could ask around the above values.
o Can you tell me about a time where you were under extreme pressure but managed to remain calm, compassionate and focused at work?
o You can then follow this up with, how has this helped you thrive in your position?
o Tell me about a time when you had to respond quickly to a crisis situation?
o You can then follow this up with, What was the outcome of this situation?
o Tell me about a time when you made a significant mistake at work? (if they hesitate just let them know that this has happened to all of us)
o You can then follow this up with, How did you approach the conversation with your supervisor after the incident?
o Describe a situation where you had to deal with someone that you didn’t like?
o You can then follow this up with, how did you handle this?
Of course, this is a very small way to implement Values Based Recruitment into your Recruitment Process, by adding these questions into your process you will be able to see how much more information you can gain from your potential staff member.
Good luck with implementing Values Based Recruitment into your organisation!
