Interviewleitfaden

Basierend auf den Ergebnissen aus dem Caliper Profil werden unsere Berater Ihnen Fragen zur Verfügung stellen, die Ihnen helfen in Vorstellungsgesprächen mögliche Schwächen zu untersuchen.

Zum Beispiel, in ihrem Profil stellt sich eine Person als zu impulsiv und den Ideen anderer gegenüber als nicht aufgeschlossen dar. Der Interviewleitfaden leitet Sie an Fragen zu stellen wie „Erzählen Sie mir von einer Herausforderung der Sie sich gegenüber sahen und welche Optionen haben Sie als mögliche Lösungen in Erwägung gezogen? Was waren die ausschlaggebenden Faktoren für Ihre endgültige Entscheidung?“ Die Antworten zu diesen Fragen können entweder Ihre Bedenken bestätigen oder Ihnen Einblicke geben, wie derjenige gelernt hat um die Defizite herum zuarbeiten.

Job analysis

We will work with you to thoroughly analyze a given role and clearly define it in terms of performance expectations, critical tasks, and required competency areas.

Whether you have a brand-new position you need to fill or you need to update an old job description to reflect industry and cultural changes, a thorough, accurate understanding of what success in that role looks like is a necessity. Caliper’s consultants know exactly how to gain a detailed understanding of what the job entails through the use of interviews and focus groups.

Our analytic approach improves hiring practices by isolating Key Result Areas for each position, establishing more relevant performance criteria, advancing strategic effectiveness throughout the organization, and helping identify high-potential employees at the beginning of their career.

Validation studies

By engaging in a Validation Study, you can be confident that your organization’s hiring, promotion, and talent-development decisions are on the right track.

A Validation Study is a scientific approach to ensuring that an assessment measures what it is intended to measure and that assessment scores are statistically related to performance data. The process allows us to scientifically link the Caliper Profile to job performance for the purpose of measuring candidates’ potential for success in a particular job or job family.

This statistical integration of potential and behavior with company goals, strategy and culture provides the basis for highly accurate and effective selection and development decisions.

Neue Manager entwickeln

Most people in managerial positions have had little or no management experience or training before taking on their current roles. Problems often occur because the individual’s initial expectations, as opposed to the real responsibilities of the position, are entirely different.

Caliper can help new managers hone the skills required for making decisions, managing priorities, developing others, communicating effectively and getting projects completed through delegation. Caliper’s First Time Managers Programme can offer support during the crucial transition period.

This cross-functional team is assigned to work on an important and urgent business problem, unlike anything most of them have ever dealt with previously. With the multitude of different perspectives brought to the group, they are able to move beyond their own areas of expertise, combining their broad base of knowledge to come up with ideas and solutions they never would have arrived at individually.

Additionally, an Action Learning coach is there to highlight and facilitate lessons learned throughout the process amid the urgency of getting the problem solved. The skills and abilities developed through this process can be applied throughout the organization, again and again, regardless of the specific challenge at hand.
