Strictly Come Dancing (or should that be Currys Come Dancing?)

11 September 2013 #Employment

Two candidates who attended interviews at Currys have complained about being made to dance at their job interviews.  One apparently had to dance to Dizzie Rascal.  The other said he had to dance in a robotic-style to a Daft Punk song which he compared to a scene from BBC’s The Office and described the experience as “humiliating”.

Whilst using various recruitment assessment tools at interviews can help to ensure that employers find the right candidates, getting employees to do a dance routine might not be the most effective tool - unless of course you are auditioning for a musical!
