For the second year in a row, Inc. magazine today listed the Institute
for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) on its sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, an
exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important
segment of the economy - America's independent entrepreneurs.
"We are extremely proud to be represented as one of Inc.'s
fastest-growing companies for the second consecutive year," said Kevin
Oakes, CEO of i4cp. "Given our focus on the people practices of
high-performance organizations, we inherently understand what separates
great companies from the rest, and try to apply the same principles to
our own business. As a result, I anticipate i4cp to remain on this list
for years to come."
i4cp's growth far exceeds the average growth rate among Inc. 500|5000
companies, which was an impressive 213% over the last three years. The
companies on this year's list report having created over
400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the
honorees reached $299 billion.
i4cp, which focuses on the people practices that make high-performance
organizations unique, continues to add many of the world's most
prominent brands to its network. Members who recently joined include
Nike, Polycom, Campbell Soup Company, Seagate, Amtrak, Penske and IBM,
Many of i4cp's member organizations also participate in peer-driven
research working groups called Exchanges. i4cp currently has six active
working groups, each dedicated to a pressing human capital topic:

supports members by providing a collective intelligence that discovers
next practices of human capital.
