SOIL is the official partner of CALIPER in India
CALIPER’S PREMISE IS THAT SKILLS CAN BE TAUGHT, BUT YOU CAN’T TEACH ATTITUDE AND MOTIVATION.
For over 50 years, Caliper has helped more than 30,000 companies around the world select the right people, develop the best talent and create the teams they need to succeed.
Our approach begins with our objective, accurate employee assessment instrument, the Caliper Profile, which provides data for measuring a person’s potential, personality characteristics, individual motivations, and likely behaviors on the job.
Whether you need to hire a new employee, promote from within, reduce turnover, or identify training and development needs, Caliper removes the uncertainty to help you make the best decisions for your company’s specific needs.
Each individual’s personality and unique collection of motivational dynamics give rise to observable behaviors that can, in turn, predict the level of success that person is apt to achieve in a given role.
In short, Caliper assesses the level of ‘fit’ between an individual’s personality and the tasks, work environment, management style, culture, and expected outcomes he or she will experience on the job. The greater the level of fit we observe, the more likely the individual will prove to be a success.
When people are in roles that are best suited to their basic personalities and motivations, they not only perform well – their productivity actually surpasses expectations. The Caliper Profile gives our clients the power to make great personnel decisions.
The caliper profile answers the most important question in any recruitment process: Does this individual have what it takes to succeed in our business?
The Caliper Profile accurately predicts whether a candidate has what it takes to succeed in your business.
Recruitment decisions based on an impressive interview performance, a candidate’s level of experience, or the manager’s ‘gut feel’ often lead to thousands of dollars lost and months wasted.
The Caliper Profile focuses on identifying what really matters to you as a hiring manager: clear and definitive information about a candidate’s innate potential to succeed in the role.
This assessment tool, backed up by more than 50 years of research and refinement, delves beneath the surface and matches an individual’s natural strengths, limitations and motivators against the role you need filled.
The key concept is job-matching – the Caliper Profile measures your candidates against exactly what you need for success in a role.
You’ll have accurate knowledge of where your candidate is likely to excel in the role, and where they’re likely to have difficulty. This allows you to not only avoid poor hiring decisions, but also on board, train and manage new recruits as effectively as possible.
The Caliper Profile allows you to make your most informed hiring decisions ever.
The caliper profile identifies ‘gaps’ and Development pathways that will respond to Coaching, training and mentoring.
As a manager, how do you help current employees make the most of their natural strengths, identify some of their weaknesses, and improve performance?
Employee development is the key to maximising each employee’s performance and raising your company to the next level of success.
The Caliper range of development profiles provide in-depth, job specific insights to both managers and individuals about their strengths and potential development areas.
These insights can help individuals enter into training, mentoring and self management programs with a better idea of where they need to focus their efforts.
For managers, the Caliper Profile provides a means to identify the innate potential of existing team members to grow and develop within the organisation. It also ensures that team members are deployed in a way to maximise their talents.

The Caliper Profile is a scientific instrument for in-depth personality assessment and job matching, and it is the foundation of our work.
The Caliper Profile has been validated by nearly a half-century of research and measures over twenty-five personality traits that relate to job performance.
Using Caliper Profile SOIL consultants analyze those traits in a variety of combinations to advise you on: hiring someone new; improving employee performance; building more effective teams; and working to take your company to the next level.
It provides clear, objective information on an individual’s strengths, limitations, motivations and potential. Since it was first developed, the Profile Assessment Test has undergone continuous refinement, and ranks today as one of the most advanced tools for matching personality to job performance.
The Caliper Profile is part of a process of gathering information about an individual’s natural strengths, motivators, and potential to succeed in a particular role. Other factors to be considered in any important personnel decision include: impressions conveyed in interviews, a review of past performance, and referrals from former supervisors. Your Caliper consultant will work with you to help you determine appropriate direction and how to best serve your hiring and development needs.
A Competency Model identifies the competencies needed to succeed in a specific role in a specific organization.
When we work with you to create Competency Models, we will help you accurately identify the key outcomes and define what knowledge, skills, behaviors, and abilities individuals need to be successful with your company. By integrating job performance with the company’s mission, goals, strategy, and corporate culture, the competency model serves as the basis for a fully integrated talent management process that supports best-in-class human resources and organizational development practices such as:
- Targeted hiring and promotions
- Onboarding and orientation
- Individual development
- Curricula and training design
- Performance management
- Hi-Po identification and development

This is because Caliper has been working with companies for more than 50 years to understand intrinsic motivation and develop models aligned with job-specific needs and outcomes.
