WIT to Partner with Caliper Corporation To Support Hiring and Talent Development Efforts

Plover, WI (November 28, 2017) – Women in Trucking (WIT) Association, which functions as a network to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, and Caliper, a New Jersey-based firm that helps businesses to select talent and develop their workforces, have announced a business partnership designed to make personnel decisions – from hiring to succession planning – more seamless and precise for association members.

Through the relationship, Caliper will support association members with their hiring and employee-development solutions. Specifically, WIT members will receive exclusive access to, and discounts on, Caliper’s pre-employment assessment tools and other services that have been shown to align talent with strategy, hire better people faster, and develop leaders, teams and mission-critical employees.

“Many of our members face business challenges related to hiring strong salespeople, diversifying their teams, and building a pipeline of future leaders,” says WIT President/CEO Ellen Voie. “We, at WIT, are dedicated to helping them be as successful as they can be, and this partnership with Caliper is an important piece of delivering on our promise.”

Caliper uses a proven science-based approach to evaluate the performance potential of job applicants for sales, customer service, leadership, and technical roles in transportation, construction, manufacturing, distribution, retail, and other business segments. They are equipped to serve companies of all sizes, from two-person agencies to global corporations.

“We are excited about our new relationship with WIT,” says Mark Greenberg, President of Caliper. “There’s a common issue that members face in growing—and securing the future of—their businesses, and that is hiring, developing, and retaining top performers. This is a great opportunity for us to deliver the talent-management expertise for which we are known.”

Association members who want to take advantage of the partnership can contact Caliper’s Director of Association Management, Ricardo Roman, at rroman@calipercorp.com or (609) 524-1224, and he will explain how Caliper can tailor products and services to fit your specific business and hiring needs.
