I recently joined executive director of ELGL Kirsten Wyatt on the GovLove podcast to discuss interview processes and how to reduce bias in hiring. You can find my episode here, or look up GovLove on your favorite podcast app. My episode is number 443.
Kirsten and I had an excellent time walking through ways to make your interview processes as effective as possible, focusing especially on interview question design. The episode gets into a great deal more detail than I am able to with any one blog post. The techniques we discuss, in addition to reducing bias, improve your likelihood of choosing the best candidate for the job. Give it a listen!
