BECOMING A CERTIFIED OUTSOURCING PROFESSIONAL


Skilled professionals who are certified can command greater professional recognition and compensation.  Studies in other fields have found a 20-plus percentage salary differential for certified professionals and 79 percent of executives recruiters believe that certified professionals are better-qualified candidates. Holding the Certified Outsourcing Professional certification benefits individuals by:
  • Connecting you to an elite group of outsourcing professionals that span across all industries in 27 different countries
  • Delivering better, more consistent outsourcing results because of a clear understanding of the end-to-end process 
  •  Higher partner satisfaction.  Lower project failure rates, and in turn, cost- and time-savings
  • Creating a common language between providers, advisors and customers based on the adherence to a professional set of standards 
  • The ability to identify and make informed decisions about qualified providers (customers) 
  • Competitive advantage -- building professional capabilities and becoming the service provider of choice (providers) 
  • Greater respect within the industry 
  • Improved career opportunities- The ability of a COP to work with a host of levels during planning through to executing strategies distinguishes them since they deploy “proven” standards of excellence, with assured results.
  • Gaining more respect from the employers, customers and fellow colleagues, they do better in the job market and command higher salaries: A 2004 study by the American Marketing Association found that 79% of 1,300 hiring managers and executive recruiters believe that ‘applicants who belong to professional organizations are higher-quality candidates. Those that belong to such groups tend to have more experience and education.” (“Member of professional association considered higher-quality candidate” The Seattle Times, January 16, 2005 – online); The 2005 Compensation Guide published by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners found that CFEs earned on average 26% more compensation than non-CFEs in comparable positions.
  • Making you stand out. Companies during the hiring process are beginning to prefer that individuals hold an IAOP designation.
