The Dow Chemical Company


The Dow Chemical Company is successful at hiring the right people for the job because they have a vigorous hiring framework which includes a detailed 16-step Interview Guide for hiring line managers.

The 16-step guide provides hands-on details for hiring managers, starting from when a decision was first made to hire to identifying the job required competencies, designing the screening and evaluation criteria to preparing and conducting the interview, as well as evaluating interviewed candidates. The guide also provides hiring managers with questions that can be used during the interview to elicit and obtain information necessary to determine the suitability of candidates. In addition, hiring managers are also trained on how to conduct interviews so that the focus is on the applicant's competencies and ability to do the job rather than irrelevant factors and criteria.
