The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors
IAOP annually conducts and independent assessment of the capabilities of outsourcing service providers and advisors, and based on this assessment, publishes The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors.
Companies apply for inclusion on the list by completing an online application at www.iaop.org/GO100. Applications are then judged by an independent panel of experienced outsourcing buyers on four critical characteristics: size and growth; customer references; organizational competencies; and management capabilities.
Each company selected for The Global Outsourcing 100 is recognized by IAOP on its website and at various events and programs throughout the year, and in a special advertising feature in FORTUNE® magazine reaching the magazine’s worldwide circulation of over one million and readership in excess of five million.
The Outsourcing Hall of Fame
IAOP’s Outsourcing Hall of Fame is one of the most prestigious awards available to individuals working in the field of outsourcing.
The Hall of Fame is unique in that it recognizes individuals not only for their contributions to the management practice and industry of outsourcing, but just as importantly for their contributions to society at-large through outsourcing.
Inductees are generally senior executives working in the field as customers, providers, or advisors who have made significant contributions to both business and society through outsourcing over a period of years.
Recipients of The Outsourcing Hall of Fame award are selected by IAOP’s Advocacy & Outreach Committee and are inducted into the Hall of Fame at The Outsourcing World Summit or an IAOP executive forum.
GEO - IAOP’s Global Excellence in Outsourcing Award
Annually, IAOP recognizes outsourcing professional teams at customer organizations that are leading the effort to better serve their organization’s customers and make their companies more successful through outsourcing.
GEO Awards are given in two categories:
The GEO Award for Best Practices recognizes the company’s outsourcing team for its leadership in defining, implementing- and managing outsourcing relationships that significantly contribute the company’s overall success. The work of the teams is judged based on both process and results, irrespective of the nature of the functions outsourced or the regional or global scope of their efforts.
The GEO Award for Innovation is given to a team that has recently implemented either a new outsourcing relationship or new outsourcing approach that is ground-breaking and worth special attention by other organizations. The goal is to recognize a practical innovation that has produced measurable results.
Nominations open in June and close in September. Winners are advised by year-end and recognized at the subsequent IAOP Outsourcing World Summit in February.
IAOP's Member of the Year Awards
As an association “of outsourcing professionals for outsourcing professionals,” IAOP’s success depends on the willingness of its members to contribute their time and talents. Annually, IAOP recognizes those who have made exceptional contributions to the association and its members with the Member of the Year Award. These individuals are recognized at a special ceremony.
