Caliper vs. The Predictive Index

Generally, users review Caliper results for each candidate with a consultant, often near the end of the hiring process. As such, the results may not be as timely or actionable as desired.

PI Hire features a Behavioral Assessment and a Cognitive Assessment, each backed by six decades’ worth of behavioral science, both flexible in their application.

The BA and the CA offer powerful insights in isolation, but they’re not standalone features. They can be used at any point in the hiring process, within the context of a customizable job target, which helps users see how the behavioral data aligns with the specific needs of the role they’re aiming to fill.
