Behavioral Interviewing: Strategies for Successful Hiring in ABA Organizations
Domain: Service Delivery

Abstract: Employee selection has often been the focus of human resource professionals and industrial/organizational psychologists in mainstream businesses, and is not often considered one of the practice areas of organizational behavior management (OBM) professionals. Historically, the struggle has been that OBM practitioners (and behavior analysts in general) require direct observation and data to make educated decisions, and during the hiring process, decisions often need to be made based on self report from both employees and their references. However, this need not be the case. This presentation will focus on concrete strategies that organizations can implement to improve their employee selection process to ensure candidates have the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities for the position, are a good cultural fit, and increase overall employee retention and satisfaction in ABA organizations.
