IAOP's recognition and awards programs acknowledge organizations and individuals whose decisive actions have led substantial transformation or change at their company, and in the case of the Leadership Hall of Fame, our industry. Judges generally look for innovative and progressive thinking, applicants that deliver strong returns to shareholders, nominees who are improving environmental efficiencies, implementing technological advances and displaying a commitment to sustainable, forward-thinking solutions.
Each award has its own set of criteria and rules. See below for information on each specific award.
LEADERSHIP HALL OF FAME
The IAOP Leadership Hall of Fame is unique in that it recognizes individuals not only for their contributions to innovative management practices and collaborative business models but just as important, for their contributions to society-at-large through measurable outcomes. Inductees must demonstrate that unique quality of leadership that allows them to synthesize a new model of business with everyone’s obligation to contribute to community-based economic development, support socially-directed investments, and provide development opportunities to all those impacted by their work. Recipients of The IAOP Leadership Hall of Fame award are selected by IAOP’s Advocacy & Outreach Committee and are inducted into the IAOP Leadership Hall of Fame at The Outsourcing World Summit or an IAOP executive forum. Nominations are accepted year-round.
