"Koru's predictive hiring technology and deep expertise in soft skills will enable us to assess a new set of performance strengths such as grit, rigor and curiosity, and provide further insights for our customers with best of breed predictive analytics."
Capp's products and services help employers to attract, select and develop talent using in-house proprietary algorithms and validation data.
The Koru product will continue to be offered to current and new customers and will be rebranded to Capp over the next year. Capp's US headquarters will be in New York and Koru will be supported by a distributed team in Seattle and New York; Sydney, Australia; and London and Birmingham, UK.
