Every year, hundreds of HR-oriented studies are released, each with different (and sometimes conflicting) results, analysis and recommendations. Subjects range from the most pressing issues in the U.S. to applicant horror stories. Through a combination of first-tier research, a comprehensive assemblage of secondary sources and access to a vast peer network of experts and thought leaders, i4cp is a one-stop solution for executives and HR managers to cut through the clutter.
