Interview questions always have a purpose behind them—whether it’s “What are your strengths?”, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” or “Why are you interested in this position?” Standard questions are generally considered standard for a reason, as they’ve been tried and tested at generating the information the hiring manager needs to make their decision. However, it’s often the nonstandard questions that can really tell you a lot about a person. Here, 13 business leaders from Young Entrepreneur Council share the questions they love to ask during interviews and why. Consider adding one or more of these options to your list to see what you can learn about your next job candidate.

So what can CEOs do to provide that support? Below, the business leaders of Young Entrepreneur Council share their thoughts and outline 10 different ways company leaders can better support their HR teams and why it's so important to the overall health of a business.

As technologies advance, companies collect more data and the trust consumers once had for those companies wanes, new laws surrounding consumer privacy are going into effect, constantly changing the way businesses learn about and sell to their customers. Such laws would put customers back in the driver’s seat, giving them control over what data they would like to share and when.
