I'm a hiring manager at a US tech company, and I often struggle with questions that would help me assess the integrity of a candidate. E.g. what types of questions, answers and omissions may reveal high or low integrity.
Are there any known frameworks or published guidelines (e.g. HBR or alternatives) that provide recommendations to assessing a candidate's integrity? I'm interested in the broad sense of the word, but if helpful, I'm looking to assess, e.g.:
- Whether or not a candidate would be more prone to lying when caught doing something wrong, or instead acknowledge a wrong and seek help.
- What it means for them to behave ethically
- How they navigate non-trivial situations where they could advance their self-interest at the expense of the company, or the team.
