Chicago, IL (PressExposure) March 09, 2011 -- Chicago Business Consultant firm, The Corporate Learning Institute (CLI), has announced plans to develop their portfolio of clients. "We are aggressively marketing to new clients in and around the Chicago area, as well as nationally," explained CEO Tim Buividas. "In this marketplace there is great uncertainty, pessimism and no urgency for results, so we are beefing up our services to send a message out there, that it is time to demand that innovation, urgency and altruism return to the marketplace," Buividas added.
While it is true that many companies have perished, downsized or at least been adversely affected by the market conditions, some companies have thrived. "Take for example the case of Alde Foods, most frozen food companies and low-cost stores like Wal-Mart," Buividas noted. "We can all take a lesson from these. Providing excellent services or products on an affordable financial scale is good business. At CLI, our advantage is that we offer a variety of organizational development services on an affordable basis, delivered by exports in the field,"Buividas concluded.
CLI has scaled back on their pricing and has maintained a busy practice. CLI President Dr. Susan Cain offers additional information about their success. "We provide good value for the investments clients make. We have a client whose motto is 'Good work Begets Good Work', and I think we ascribe to that too. It is important to offer a variety of services, customize them to fit the needs of the client, and cost-out those services on an affordable basis. This has allowed us to expand like Noodles & Company, Aldi, Wal-Mart, and others in the current marketplace," she noted.
However, expansion is also dependent on the services that are needed in the current marketplace. CLI offers three services areas; social networking event, training services and strategy and coaching services. "We are expanding in the training and strategic areas, more than in the social networking activities we offer," Buividas explained. "Most companies are being very diligent about reigning in expenses, and are hiring us to develop and deliver targeted training that they currently need," he concluded.
CLI maintains meeting offices and an outdoor adventure campus at its offices based at the Marriott Hickory Ridge Conference Hotel in Lisle, Illinois, and 15 miles west of Chicago.
