Working with Diverse Types of People

Multi-Cultural Office Staff Sitting Having Meeting TogetherInterview Question: Are you comfortable working with diverse types of people?


Whether you are referring to the ethnic and cultural backgrounds of your staff or even just the wide ranging nature of personalities present, this question can show you some key personality traits of your candidate. Always press an “opinion or assertion” response (e.g. I have no problem at all with a diverse group) by asking for specific examples from the candidate’s past. If you possess a workforce that tends to have a healthy mix of strong opinions, differences and styles fit for the candidate can be measured in part right here.
