the problems
The Problems:

Halifax Regional was losing the best RN candidates because the hiring process was taking too long

  • It was taking too much time to:
  • Screen candidates
  • Schedule Interviews
  • Conduct Interviews
  • Determine if candidate was a good fit for the position
  • Make a hiring decision
  • Offer Job
the problems1
The Problems:
  • RN staffing was too lean in the Emergency Care Center and on the Medical/Surgical floors heading into a busy time of year
  • We needed to provide additional training to recent RN graduates so they would be ready to work in all areas of the Medical Center
  • We also needed to hire the “right” RNs
    • Reduce turnover in the first 90 days & 12 months
    • Right “fit” with HRMC
the possible solutions
The Possible Solutions:
  • Marketing/Media Campaign targeted at RNs from other facilities showing the benefits of working at Halifax Regional
  • “Boomerang” Campaign targeting RNs that had left our employment in the last 12 months
  • Creation of a “Work-to-School” program with the local Community College Nursing program
  • Flexible Scheduling Options with existing RN staff
  • Departure Risk Assessment & Retention Program
the best solution
The Best Solution:

Fast Track BBI!!!

why it s the most important thing
Why It’s the Most Important Thing

If you hire the wrong person or have people on your team with poor behavioral skills you will have

    • poor customer service
    • poor teamwork

what is behavioral based interviewing
What is Behavioral Based Interviewing?
  • BBI is an interview technique that is based on the premise that the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance in similar situations.
  • Two Primary Skill Sets
      • Technical
      • Behavioral - traditional interviews typically provide insufficient insight
  • Most employees fail because of Behavioral Issues, not Technical Skills
  • BBI questions are developed based on the critical competencies of the available position.
  • Hiring Managers are better able to assess whether the candidate is a good fit for the role by the responses of the candidate.
creating the behavioral based interview
Creating the Behavioral Based Interview
  • Step 1: Analyze the Position & Determine Competencies
  • Step 2: Pick questions that address those competencies
  • Step 3: Ask interview questions designed to elicit evidence of those competencies
  • Step 4: Listen & compare that candidate’s response to the IdealResponses for the position
      • If even the Best Candidate gives Red Flag Responses Keep Looking!!!
      • You want to hire people that have Ideal Responses to the critical competencies you have identified!

How Fast Track BBI Worked

Expedited Screening and interview process

  • Applicants screened and contacted within 24 hours of applying
  • Interview scheduled in same week when possible.
  • Team of Nursing Managers, Clinical Staff & HR liaison scheduled to conduct interview using BBI process
    • Panel interview most lasted 30 – 40 minutes
    • Interviews were scheduled with multiple applicants 30 minutes apart
how fast track bbi works
How Fast Track BBI Works
  • Immediately after interview each candidate received a tour of hospital
  • While candidate was on the tour
    • Interview Team reviewed the interview & discussed if candidate was a good fit for the position
    • If so, a conditional offer of employment was prepared by the HR liaison
  • When candidate returns from the tour a conditional offer of employment is made
the results
The Results

“Trial run” was conducted with the Nursing Division.

  • Fast Track Interviews were conducted on 7 interview dates
  • 9 Candidates were offered positions
  • 9 Candidates Accepted the positions

These Candidates were among some of the best new RN’s hired at Halifax Regional in several years

proven success
Proven Success
  • We were extremely pleased with the quality of RN’s hired and have begun implementing Fast Track BBI in other divisions throughout the hospital
  • Working together with the Nursing Division we were able to achieve much success and were able to find an innovative solution to our lengthy hiring process
  • Based on this success Halifax Regional will us the Fast Track BBI as a preferred RN selection process
  • One of the most important outcomes was the strengthening of the working relationships between HR & Nursing Managers
what we will do better
What We Will Do Better
  • Require Nurse Managers with the Greatest Need to be on the interview team
  • Have all members of the interview team commit to the Fast Track Interview Date & Time
  • Start earlier! We started the Fast Track program after we had a problem and we should have used it as a recruitment strategy and practice to avoid the problem
