In addition to development, successful organisations are now integrating emotional intelligence into their recruitment management process. The World Economic Forum identified emotional intelligence as being one of the top 10 skills which will grow in prominence by 2022. As the demand for emotionally intelligent behaviours increases, it becomes necessary to assess a candidates emotional intelligence capabilities when selecting and hiring new employees.
Utilising a validated emotional intelligence selection instrument in the hiring process provides critical information regarding the candidate’s demonstration of emotional intelligence and when combined with other selection best practices adds another dimension of information to the decison making process. The EI Recruit report assesses 70 behaviours that underpin emotional intelligence and provides a list of suggested interview questions and comparative scale to help determine your most suitable candidate.
