Many of the world's leading organizations, from the U.S. Federal Reserve Board to Amazon, use i4cp membership to develop their HR teams, guide their HR strategy, and create organizational cultures and workforces built for the future.

We focus on next practices in human capital. Our member organizations rely on us to ensure that their efforts will make the greatest impact on the business today and in the future. Through superior research, peer collaboration, tools, and data, we provide insights that help organizations better anticipate, adapt, and act in a constantly changing business environment.

So... why i4cp? What distinguishes us more than anything else is our business model. We aren't consultants. When you have a question, problem, or need, our first response is to look to the expertise of our community above all else. Our culture of crowdsourcing enables us to bring together experts and practitioners quickly to respond to pressing, immediate challenges that emerge unexpectedly.

The pandemic has amplified the urgency of many workforce-related topics. Topics our research team and member community are actively exploring:

i4cp is an HR thinktank, and a credible, independent resource that my team relies on for critical insights on HR topics, HR strategy development, connections to peers, and more. I consider i4cp membership to be the antidote for the natural gravity of insularity that plagues our profession.

Having worked with i4cp for many years, they are highly responsive, extremely insightful and certainly a powerful partner to have if you’re at all interested in advancing the business impact of HR, Talent and Learning.

3M, as one of its longest serving members, looks to i4cp for global business-imperative trends for HR, the workforce, and issues impacting the business in general. i4cp provides data and insights to understand how we may need to continue to adapt and change.
Karen B. Paul
C-Suite Executive Planning Leader, 3M
i4cp is research-based, they have a huge network of people, and I feel like there isn’t a question I’ve asked that they weren’t able or willing to help me try to find the answer. i4cp is really my go-to to help me stay connected to what’s happening out there.

As a member, you’ll directly fund and help guide our research agenda. Other research providers rely heavily on human capital consulting revenue, and their events, research, and thought leaders are driven by internal analysts.
