The Global Outsourcing 100® and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors

As the global, standard-setting association and advocate for outsourcing professionals and the organizations they support, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) annually produces the following research to help companies in their outsourcing decisions:

  • The Global Outsourcing 100 – the annual listing of the world’s best outsourcing service providers – in its tenth year
  • The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors – the annual listing of the top outsourcing advisors and consultants – in its seventh year

The alphabetical lists were published at the 2015 OWS. Download the alphabetical lists for 2015 here.  Visit the PULSE Blogs to see how participating companies distinguish themselves in each of the key judging categories.

IAOP is pleased to introduce the NEW Global Outsourcing 100, now in its tenth year. This year’s program builds upon our past work while providing even better information for customers, providers, and advisors alike.

Major changes include:
1)     Expanded focus on innovation and corporate social responsibility (CSR) – areas customers tell us are increasingly central to their outsourcing decisions,
2)     Identification of the best companies in each of four judging categories– making it easier to see in what areas each company on the list excels,
3)     Alphabetical, instead of ranked lists, making it both easier to find companies by name and to place greater emphasis on the excellence required to make the list and less on relative ranking between all of these fine companies.
Each company selected for inclusion on The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists will be recognized at IAOP’s 2015 Outsourcing World Summit® in February and in a spring 2015 special advertising feature on outsourcing to appear in FORTUNE Magazine.  The company’s name, a statement of its services, and website address will be published, and the best companies in each of four judging categories will be recognized and highlighted. To download the June 16, 2014 FORTUNE special advertising section, please click here.  Download the 2015 June 8 Fortune 500 issue special advertising section prospectus, but hurry, ad closing is May 1.
Additional sub-lists are published for service provider applicants throughout the year by IAOP through its various programs and each company that participates will receive a corporate recognition package suitable for use in their corporate offices and in their own print and electronic materials.
