Caliper, a talent management solutions company, announced today that it has officially launched its Caliper On Campus program with colleges and universities – at both the undergraduate and graduate levels – to embed assessment insights and application into HR curricula for hands-on learning scenarios.
As part of this program, students will have the opportunity to leverage Caliper’s scientifically validated workplace assessment, the Caliper Profile, to gain insight into how to apply valid assessment tools in solving today’s human capital issues as well as how to leverage their own strengths and pinpoint areas for professional development.
Students will gain valuable experience into how assessments are used in the HR profession to equip them to address employee selection, career planning, performance management, diversity, and organizational development issues.
The program is designed to enhance employability upon graduation by enabling HR students to adapt to the new world of work. In addition, real-world consulting case studies and applied data will be embedded into the curriculum to serve as a basis for guiding learning experiences in the most relevant human resource content areas as defined by SHRM and AASCB. As a result, students will be able to analyze, interpret, and apply data to address a wide range of human resource issues.
“We are very excited to launch our Caliper On Campus program to colleges and universities nationwide,” said Principal Scientist and Head of Academic Research and Partnerships, Tom Schoenfelder, PhD. “Our goal is to partner closely with educational institutions to help them add value to their HR programs and courses so that we can better prepare students to enter the workforce in human resources. By combining a data-rich curriculum with applicable case studies and hands-on learning, we know we can help differentiate HR programs and increase graduate employability.”
Once students have engaged in their own professional development and have participated in a series of data-driven learning experiences, they will have the opportunity to become Caliper certified. Caliper Certification is a combination of online learning and an expert-facilitated workshop that will help students apply the principles of psychological science to talent management issues. Those who become Caliper certified have access to a certification network and receive continuing education credits recognized by both SHRM and HRCI.
The University of Central Florida, in partnership with Caliper, is already queued up to deploy programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the fall of 2019 that will equip tomorrow’s HR and business leaders with the tools, knowledge, and professional development to enhance early career acceleration.
