Motivation-Based Interviewing (MBI) is a globally-used interviewing method that assesses a job candidate's attitude, passion and skill...the three components ALL High Performers share in common that enable them to achieve above-average results. By asking properly and consistently phrased skill-assessment questions, interviewers can gather information about a candidate's attitude...considered the #1 predictor of future job performance and success...without taking any extra interviewing time.

Critical to hiring success is adopting the MBI ‘Hire ONLY High Performers’ Hiring Standard. This PDF is an interviewer sign-off form that should be completed every time someone new is hired.

If this employee leaves for any reason (voluntary or involuntary) within the first year, the back side of the form is completed. This side requests information useful for continuous learning and improvement. Worse than a bad hire…is not learning from it and repeating it.
