Is your interview board properly trained? Are they confident and comfortable, not only about the questions they are asking to get the best from your candidates but also about how to score them, how to decide on what they have heard and how to recognise their own biases?
Are they confident, when there is an internal competition or an internal candidate, that they can separate their previous knowledge from what they hear at the interview to be consistent in their treatment of all candidates?

"High quality preparation clarifying what information we needed to source from candidates and assisting us to frame questions that would get us that information.
Very clear in her direction to us of the process so we were assured and confident because Kate guided us safely through process. Never received negative feedback or complaints from candidates.
Very respectful in her interaction with candidates, giving an authentic message that we wanted them to do their best.
Very systematic in the record keeping, scores, comments etc. all of which was assuring for board and took burden from us.
I think this is the most important… Kate shared our corporate responsibility to get the best outcome even though she would not be affected by the outcome in the longer term. Therefore we trusted her."
