Toronto– October 6, 2016 – Retained executive search firm The Caldwell Partners International Inc. (TSX: CWL)
today announced an exclusive partnership with Caliper, a research-based talent management consulting firm focusing on assessment and development. This agreement will integrate Caliper’s assessment and onboarding services into Caldwell Partners’ research-based executive search process in Canada, in order to provide deeper insight for executive appointments and foster smooth and efficient integration into new roles.
“When people are in roles best suited to their innate personalities and motivations, they not only perform well, they surpass expectations,” said Elan Pratzer, managing partner of Caldwell Partners, Canada. “Our goal is to minimize uncertainty for clients with respect to how a particular candidate will fit into the role and culture of the hiring organization. This collaboration with Caliper is a huge competitive advantage in helping us achieve this goal.”
Pratzer continued: “Caliper has been a pioneer in talent assessment for over 50 years. Their dedication to helping their clients achieve world class results by ensuring the right people are in the role at the right time is in exact alignment with our own philosophy, and we are pleased to be partnering with such a high quality firm.”
Caliper will analyze the motivations, job-related strengths and developmental opportunities of the pool of candidates for a search and provide a comparative analysis that gives a clear picture of where the executives’ strengths intersect with the requirements of the role. Additionally, an assessment of the future team will provide predictive insight into team dynamics during the decision-making process and later allow for smoother onboarding through developmental recommendations, communication style suggestions, and highlighted areas of synergy and/or difference among the team.
“Together, Caliper and Caldwell Partners generate tremendous value for senior executives and boards who can’t afford to make a mistake,” said Andrew Case, chief executive officer of Caliper Canada. “Our ability to objectively measure a candidate’s potential to perform the role and fit the existing team truly differentiates Caldwell’s offering among its competitors.”
