This interviewing skills programme merges a ‘toolkit’ of techniques that can be applied in day-to-day interview situations, together with creating an awareness of the counter-productive dangers of interviewer bias. The skills elements extend to what is applicable in a range of interviews such as recruitment, appraisal and performance management, absence, discipline, and grievance.Interviews are used to make decisions about a vast range of issues; an individual’s suitability for employment or promotion, to evaluate performance or decide on disciplinary or grievance situations.
