What is BEI?
BEI stands for Behavioral Event Interviews
A behavioral interview is a structured interview that is created after a thorough analysis of the job skills needed for a successful job performance. The competencies are then selected that define the knowledge, skills, and abilities which must be assessed during the interview process. This paves the way to develop interview questions designed to identify the presence of these competencies.
The goal of the Behavioral Event Interview process is to predict future job performance based on examples of previous specific behaviors, which illustrate the desired competencies through tactful probing.
The interviewers are looking for behaviors in situations similar to those that will be encountered in the new job. By relating a candidate’s answers to specific past experiences, you’ll develop much more reliable indicators of how the individual will most likely act in the future.
What are the principles of BEI?
BEI is based on the interaction of the following principles:
- The best predictor of future performance is past performance in similar circumstances.
- The more varied the situations in which a behavior is demonstrated, the more deeply rooted the behavior.
- The more recent the behavior, the more predictive it is of future performance.
- People reveal examples if past behaviors in instances where they experience greatest successes or setbacks.
- The more frequency noted of a certain behavior, the more possibility of that behavior being repeated.
What are the types of BEI Models?
Over the years, many BEI models have emerged. Here are some often used BEI Models.
- S.T.A.R Model: Situation – Task – Action – Result
- C.A.R Model – Context – Action – Result
- S.A.R Model – Situation – Action – Result
Although they may appear different, they all eventually end up doing similar things. At Synergogy, we follow our homegrown, tried and tested model of S.A.R.
What are some examples of BEI Questions?
Situation: Tell me about a time when none of your supervisors were available to guide or direct you on a particular project or problem.
Action: How did you approach the situation so that you could continue with your work?
Result: What was the outcome?
Situation: Give me an example of how you have approached a complex or difficult problem in the past.
Action: How did you go about it? or What techniques did you use?
Result: What was the result of that?
Situation: Give me an example of a time when you delegated a project to someone for the purpose of developing that individual.
Action: How did you go about delegating?
Result: How successful were they?
