Top international Recruitment agencies are combating experts who can fathom body language and then recruit employees and push the best bet strategy for their clientele and attain a win-win situation for both the representative parties.
HR consultants in the UK are well-versed with the fact that basic communication gestures can be a great hint about the behavioural aspects of the candidate and can prove very much beneficial for the company in the long run.
There are many genetic, learned and cultural signals through which we communicate with others. Some expressions like smiling, frowning, pissing-off gestures are considered to be inborn or genetic signals that are reflected through different states of mind. These are common in all the primates. Likewise, some gestures like crossing our arms on our chest are also genetic signals.
Highlights on basic communication gestures:
Most of the basic communication gestures are the same all over the world. When the candidate is happy, he smiles, when angry, there will be a frown when sad there will be turmoil over the face. When the candidate does not agree on the prescribed terms then the individual will shake the head from side to side, and when the candidate readily nods, then there is a sign of agreement.
A person who is not talking also communicates through body language. His body, eyes, face, hands and legs communicate through non-verbal communication, even though he does not use words to communicate and put across his ideas and feeling to anyone. What to believe and what not to believe when a person talks depend on the way that person reacts or communicates. To draw a conclusion about a person's true intention, the interviewer has to carefully observe the candidate's total gestures along with his verbal communication. This body language can reveal what is there in his mind whether he is telling a lie or trying to deceive. There are some obvious gestures like folded arms, that are associated with a defensive posture.
When there is some conflict between individuals, their facial expressions undergo rapid transformations. Eyebrows are down at the inner ends, the lips are tensed and pushed forward without dental display, the head and the chin are thrust forward while eyes become glaring. In such a situation, the candidate is deemed to lose eye contact as that would amount to defeat.
While expressing shock, a person’s mouth is wide open and the chins drop. Sometimes a person’s mouth is open not because of shock or surprise, but because he is trying to concentrate on something very intently. Sometimes, this gesture is also combined with protrusion of the tongue.
These were some of the gestures which communicate a lot about the candidate and the behaviour aspects of the candidate after becoming the deemed employee of the company. So International recruitment agencies London are now succumbing to various psychological parameters to cater an employee to the organization for a stable tenure and with honest delivery.
