HR interview cycle

Take people to the next level through a structured talent dialogue

Structural professionalization of the organization

One of the main questions of all organizations is whether people are able and willing to act ‘professionally’ in their work. People’s behavior determines if an organization succeeds or fails; if they work well together or less effective.

A good way to strengthen professional behavior in a structured manner is to implement a HR interview cycle. During the interview cycle, the manager conducts a conversation with employees about performance and development a couple of times a year. TMA Method offers a philosophy and related online tools that allow organizations to design this whole interview cycle.

Make the interview cycle more effective and easy with TMA Method

Motivating people towards professional behavior is not an easy task. People have their own (unconscious) preferred behavior and sometimes seem to be completely stuck in their current routine.

If you want to encourage people to develop further, you must first have a good profile that shows the way to professional behavior. In addition, you will get precise and objective information about people. If you have no reliable information about people such as their talents, drives, cognitive abilities and skill level it is difficult to strike the right note with them and lead them to an appropriate development plan.
