i4cp Continues Rapid Growth with Record First Quarter

Sales Grow by More Than 100% Compared to Same Period Last Year

Seattle, WA (April 18, 2011) - The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) - the fastest growing and largest corporate network focused on the practices of high performance organizations - continued its rapid growth with the largest first quarter in company history.

Sales more than doubled from the same period in 2010 as organizations such as Morgan Stanley, Randstad, Rubbermaid Newell, Expedia, Waste Management, Levi Strauss, Genzyme, J Crew and many others joined the i4cp network.

"Member companies see i4cp as a primary conduit to understanding the practices of high performance organizations," said Kevin Oakes, CEO of i4cp. "Our amazing growth is a response to demand for a vendor-free network of peer experts and human capital research that reveals best and next practices. We're honored to expand our network to include these world-recognized companies."

Beyond membership growth, i4cp also found success in the launch of several new research Exchanges. These exclusive working groups bring together peers from multiple companies to collaborate on research and share best practices to overcome critical organizational challenges.

In the first quarter, i4cp launched the Performance Management Exchange and Strategic Workforce Planning Exchange. Current groups that are accepting corporate participants are focused on evidence-based HR approaches, employee engagement and HR technology vendor management.

i4cp also successfully launched the Chief Learning and Talent Officer Board, a collaboration of prominent CLOs and Chief Talent Officers from major organizations. This is the first of several executive-level boards the company is launching in 2011.

In concert with its unprecedented corporate growth, the company continues to add talent to the organization with strategic hires internally, as well as prominent additions to its board of directors that include top thought leaders in the industry. i4cp recently announced the addition of Dr. John Boudreau to its board, and is also very proud to announce the addition of Amit Mohindra to its research team. Amit, who recently accepted a position as director of primary research for i4cp, has an impressive background in economics research and has developed considerable corporate human resources experience at firms such as IBM and Goldman Sachs.
