Global Outsourcing 100 Application Process Now Open 
for Outsourcing Providers and Advisors
Global Outsourcing 100® Program Showcases Companies in Five Distinct Categories

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY, September 1, 2015 – lAOP® is calling on outsourcing service providers and advisors to apply for its annual Global Outsourcing 100® and World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists.
The association starts accepting applications September 1st for the annual independently judged, opt-in lists for service providers and advisors. For complete information about current lists, as well as details to apply for 2016, please visit IAOP’s website. Last day to apply is November 1, 2015.
Building upon its past work and announcing several new and exciting changes, lAOP is pleased to kick-off the 11th year of The Global Outsourcing 100, which recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors – from across all industries, areas of specialization, and sizes - to provide the most relevant information to its members and the industry at-large. These companies all share the standards and values of a community of outsourcing companies and professionals.
New this year:

  • a continued focus on innovation and corporate social responsibility (CSR) – areas customers say are increasingly central to their outsourcing decisions; outsourcing advisors will now also add the CSR judging category to their application criteria
  • creating a separate judging category for Customer References, for both providers and advisors
  • a showcasing of the best companies in each of five judging categories: size and growth; customer references; delivery excellence; programs for innovation; and CSR
  • alphabetical instead of ranked lists making it both easier to find companies by name and placing greater emphasis on the merit required to make the list as opposed to relative ranking among these top companies
Providers and advisors are invited to apply at

Each company selected for inclusion on The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists will be recognized at IAOP’s 2016 Outsourcing World Summit®, February 15-17, 2016 at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort & Conference Center, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and in a spring 2016 special advertising feature on outsourcing to appear in FORTUNE Magazine. 

Judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes a review by an independent panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. Applicants demonstrate their capabilities by responding to a typical RFP. For complete details on how the applications will be judged and scored, please refer to the 2016 Global Outsourcing 100 Process & Scoring Methodology document.

“We've entered a new decade with The Global Outsourcing 100 entering its11th year making it the perfect time to expand and build upon the program's growing recognition and value," said Michael Corbett, IAOP Chairman. “We’re looking forward to recognizing the field's top outsourcing providers and advisors at next year's Outsourcing World Summit and in FORTUNE magazine."

“Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors in the sourcing industry, but what they really need to understand now is what distinguishes each as exceptional,” said IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. “The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists will do just that. We look forward to building on the value the lists give the companies as well as the ease with which buyers will now be able to navigate them.”
