Therefore, with few exceptions your answers should be tailored to show your value.
Let's take an example question that a Human Resources Manager candidate might get and see how we can answer it.
Question: How would you attract the best talent to our company when it comes to recruiting for open positions?
Answer: We already know that turnover is a major expense; therefore, my first focus would be on retaining your quality employees so that we could avoid those expenses. However, turnover will still happen. My goal would be to set up internship programs with the local colleges and universities so that we would always have a talented group of potential candidates to select from. These candidates would already be familiar with our systems, as well as, we would have a working knowledge of their skills and abilities.
Of course this is a hypothetical answer but the point is that you will establish that you recognize that turnover is expensive and that you have given a great deal of thought to cost avoidance while improving the current situation.
Of course business management boils down to managing the needs of the customer, employee, and the owner! If any of those get out of balance you will eventually fail!
