Interviewing remains the most popular assessment for employee screening, but the reliability remains low, often in the 50 percent range.
Ira shares an outstanding story that I see repeated over and over in the vast majority of companies - weak interviewing by hiring managers. This is one of the most critical failure points in the hiring process.
Most companies do a terrible job preparing managers and executives to hire effectively. In most companies, hiring is NOT a process, it's a random set of arbitrary meetings where each individual manager does interviewing in their own misguided way. The minute you turn hiring into a process, train all your managers, and put some rigor behind it - hiring accuracy starts moving up from the traditional low reliability level in the 50% range.
