Corbett. "The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors lists are essential for companies who are looking for proven leaders and rising stars in the outsourcing industry."
"Because of the rigorous application and acute judging processes involved, The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors rankings not only help companies make better-informed purchasing decisions, they raise the bar for excellence in the industry," said IAOP CEO Debi Hamill.

Recognition for Excellence in Outsourcing
