Shortlisting Candidates for Interview
Whilst short-listing can be a time-consuming process, it is also an exciting moment when you get to meet the potential high performer that could soon add value to your business. It is important to follow best practice to make the process more manageable for your staff, to protect your company’s brand and to be perceived as a top employer. The first step in the process of screening applications requires that you review the job description and/or the advertisement for the vacant position. This should help to remind you of the key qualifications, skills and experience which are required to carry out the role. Everyone involved in the selection process, from the short-listing stage onwards, must be aware of relevant anti-discrimination legislation in order to avoid the negative reputational consequences of a tribunal claim. This guide takes you through the process, from sifting to decision-time.
