E-learning company now located where the world’s greatest locomotives once were built.
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI), a major producer of online training and talent development materials for business, government, education and the nonprofit sector, has relocated its executive offices, creative services and sales departments to a new 10,000-square-foot office suite at the Baldwin Tower in Eddystone, Pennsylvania.
Over 60 employees are now located in the Baldwin building, which was once the headquarters of The Baldwin Locomotive Works (1825-1972), at one time the largest producer of steam locomotives in the world. The building sits on a portion of the 600-acre yard that once produced engines that pulled trains of all descriptions in nearly every country on earth.
RLI’s new home includes 10 executive offices; four conference rooms; large, comfortable work areas for the firm’s sales and creative personnel; a kitchen and cafeteria and new audio and video facilities.
“As a company, we’re growing quickly,” says Stephen Meyer, the company’s President and CEO. “We were bursting at the seams at our former headquarters in Springfield. So, it’s wonderful to have this beautiful new space for our people.”
Glenn Eckard, RLI’s Chief Operating Officer, oversaw the move. “The management at Baldwin Tower did an outstanding job for us and we’re tremendously pleased with the result,” says Eckard. “It’s also kind of ironic that a building that once held one of the great companies of the ‘old’ economy is now home to a firm that does much of its business in cyberspace. I hope old Matthias Baldwin would be pleased.”
The new location joins RLI’s 6,000 square feet of offices in Springfield Pa, which will continue to house its telemarketing, sales development and customer service departments.
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, human resources, management, leadership and safety. RLI’s approach is founded on the idea that talent development can only be effective if managers make it a priority and follow up to ensure that learning sticks. The company’s signature five to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, help managers build their core competency as talent developers by giving them the tools they need to replicate in others the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that drive performance.
Based in Greater Philadelphia, RLI is an operating division of Business 21 Publishing, LLC
