Abstract [sv]

När en chefsposition ska tillsättas gäller det att få en perfekt matchning där rätt person är på rätt plats.  Fem rekryteringsspecialister har intervjuats med syftet att ta reda på hur viktigt deltagarna ansåg att personliga egenskaper är vid chefreskrytering, hur de kommer fram till vilka personliga egenskaper som ska bedömas, vilka metoder som används för denna bedömning samt utmaningar de såg med bedömningen. Deltagarna ansåg personliga egenskaper som oerhört viktigt vid chefsrekrytering och att kravprofilen utformas baserat på kompetensbehov inom företaget. Deltagarna använde intervjuer, personlighetstest och referenser vid bedömning av kandidaters personliga egenskaper och upplevde att utmaningar kan vara att kandidaten ger ett ouppriktigt intryck av sig själv, samt  svårigheter med att utföra en objektiv bedömning.
