We invested time in building a complete profile of a candidate in advance of the interview. This profile was accessible in advance of the interview day and interviewers were asked to read the documents and ask questions before interviewing. We found this reduced interviewers defaulting to their standard pattern matching.

We also did a post mortem when a bad situation occurred, like hiring someone we had to quickly fire.
