i4cp Launches Expert Network

New service gives human capital professionals instant access to thousands of practitioner experts

Seattle, WA (October 27, 2011) - i4cp announced today the launch of an exciting new service for human capital practitioners: The i4cp Expert Network, which enables unparalleled access to thousands of experts on people strategies in many of the world's highest-performing companies. Unlike most other networks for human capital professionals, the i4cp Expert Network is focused solely on practitioners, and closed to vendors and consultants.

The i4cp Expert Network makes it easy to connect with practitioners who have been identified as experts in one or more of 40+ strategic areas of human resources-related functions such as talent management, organizational effectiveness, performance management, workforce analytics and succession planning.

"I love LinkedIn, but LinkedIn won't tell you who is an expert in strategic workforce planning or talent management," says Kevin Oakes, CEO of i4cp. "The i4cp Expert Network brings to life our robust network of peers in many top global companies by connecting practitioners and their issues with the best people to help solve their issues - domain experts in top companies around the world."

"What makes the service especially powerful is that when i4cp members ask a question, they won't be bombarded by vendors and consultants looking for new business," added Oakes. "The i4cp Expert Network is completely private and restricted to practitioners who want to hear from and exchange ideas with their peers and colleagues."

The i4cp Expert Network service is available to all i4cp member organizations as part of a standard membership package.
