Sweet Emotion: Why More is Better When It Comes to People Analytics

I liked it. You liked it. We all liked it. That’s what you do on Facebook. You hit that little hand icon to ‘like’ your friends’ posts. But sometimes a thumbs up is not an accurate expression of how you feel about something posted. In our tech-driven world full of taco and crying cat emojis, people are looking for more and more ways to express themselves. Facebook’s solution was to …Read More

Your Job is Kryptonite, Supergirl

All that power, and they can’t even stand up to their bosses. It must run in the El family. On CBS’s new hit show, Supergirl, the titular character’s earthy alter ego, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), has followed in her Kryptonian cousin Superman’s red-booted footsteps and taken a job at a news corporation. And just as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman has to contend with a cranky, demanding boss at the Daily Planet, Zor-El/Kara/Supergirl …Read More

Caliper Receives Recognition For Social Responsibility, HR Excellence

Caliper doesn’t do it for the accolades or the awards. We do it because Caliper Cares. Admittedly, though, it is nice to get recognized for our charitable work. Last month, Caliper earned the prestigious HR Award for Excellence in the area of Social Responsibility at the 18th Annual Delaware Valley HR Department of the Year Awards, held in Philadelphia. Caliper doesn’t just promote a “Season of Giving.” We have a …Read More

Tip: Hire a Sith Lord to Run Your HR Department

So apparently there’s a Star Wars movie coming out this week? The marketing effort has been remarkably subtle, kind of like the poster artwork above. For the literal-minded: That was sarcasm.
