Hiring Expert Certification

Hiring Expert Certification

Bad hiring decisions can be expensive to an organization. Most organizations don’t have a trained panel who are involved in recruitment, as a result, recruiters tend to make errors in the hiring decision.

Strengthscape’s Hiring Expert Certification is a technique based on the idea that candidates’ past and present behaviors are the best predictors of how they will behave in the future. The participants will be trained to conduct behavior-based interviewing. Participants will learn to understand behavioral competencies, identify behavioral strengths and weaknesses, and ask appropriate questions to gauge behavioral effectiveness. This will help them in streamlining their hiring process.


Hiring Expert Certification can help you with:

Psychometric Assessments

Bad hiring decisions can be expensive to an organization. Most organizations don’t have a trained panel who are involved in recruitment, as a result, recruiters tend to make errors in the hiring decision. Interviews are progressively becoming more competency-focused and there is a need for the panel to be trained on the same. This is where Hiring Expert Certification comes into the picture.

As a part of this certification, participants will learn to assess the fitment level of job seekers based on:

  1. Behavioral competencies are required for the specific job roles.
  2. Organizational culture.
  3. Team dynamics and work environment.

Experienced facilitators
Strengthscape facilitators bring rich experience in hiring expert training programs across industries.

Real-time experience and feedback
The facilitators will provide immediate feedback and a future action plan to ensure enhanced learning.

Personalized Learning
We understand that everyone learns differently. While some people learn in a group environment, others value personal learning. In order to ensure high-impact learning interventions, we will use a blend of group and individual activities.

Individual handholding
Strengthscape provides continuous support through individual handholding for higher learning effectiveness.

Strengthscape’s Hiring Expert Certification program aims to imbibe the following competencies in the participants:

S.NO. Competency How this will be applied
1 Questioning, probing, and listening skills Build proficiency in asking open and closed ended questions
2 Minimize personal biases that can affect the hiring decision Using a structured and methodical People Reading Map free from personal biases
3 Demonstrate professional and ethical interviewing behavior that reinforces the organization’s brand Building an interviewer’s etiquette checklist reinforced with behavioral rituals
4 Predict the job performance of the candidate in the context of the role, organizational culture, and immediate team Framing questions related to the context of the job role and organizational culture.

The Hiring Expert Certification program is a competency-based interviewing process.

This process ensures that:

  1. Structured interviewing leads to hiring decision reliability.
  2. Decisions made are based on measurable criteria of indicative behaviors.
  3. Decisions are based on what the candidate did rather than what the candidate would want to do in certain situations.
  4. People read based on behavioral priorities and tendencies (and not just professional/technical competencies).

We believe that leaders are made. Through careful nurturing, structured learning, and enriching experience. Nurture wins over nature.


We believe that humans have an unlimited capacity to learn. You may differ in your natural talents, preferences, and learning styles; but YOU can be whatever YOU set out to be. The world is your oyster!


The role of a facilitator and trainer in adult learning, is to challenge the assumptions,reframe the experience, and change perspectives. They enable learning by creating conversations that enable the learners to reflect on their own personalities, experiences, and priorities.


Teamwork that leads to high, consistent performance, represents the highest form of competitive advantage. Teamwork is not a function of time, role, or situation, but is an outcome of a collective goal – a conscious, consistent, and targeted effort by each of the team members.
