Seattle, WA (October 15, 2013) - The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) has been included on Puget Sound Business Journal's list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Washington for a second consecutive year.

i4cp, a research organization headquartered in downtown Seattle, will be featured among other recipients in the Puget Sound Business Journal's October 2013 issue.

"We are very proud to once again be acknowledged as one of Washington state's fastest-growing companies," said Kevin Oakes, CEO of i4cp. "We continue to invest in new ways to bring value to our member organizations, and it's great to see our efforts receive recognition."
The company's growth is expected to continue as it builds upon its foundation of delivering timely, actionable research, industry-tested tools, and access to its Interactive Data platform. i4cp has also developed a thriving peer network, facilitating the sharing of best and next practices among its membership, representing many of the world’s leading corporations.
i4cp introduced an empirical, research-based model, the People-Profit Chain™ last month, which links specific activities and initiatives to performance outcomes, identifying the people practices that really work. High-performance organizations that embrace this model can see a performance increase of up to 3x.
i4cp has also introduced a new assessment that uses the People-Profit Chain model to help business leaders develop people strategy and set priorities by measuring effectiveness against the 25 key performance indicators most correlated with market performance. New companies that join i4cp by Dec. 15 receive the assessment for free.
