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 listing of the world’s best outsourcing service providers. The lists include companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services and are employed by top customers when considering potential outsourcing service providers and advisors. In 2015 four areas were considered and judged: size and growth as measured in revenue, employees, and global presence; delivery excellence as demonstrated through the value being created at the company's top customers, industry recognition, and relevant organizational and individual professional certifications; programs for Innovation as demonstrated through specific programs and resulting outcomes that produce new forms of value for customers; Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as shown through corporate programs and outcomes that address such topics as community involvement and development, labor practices, human rights, fair operating practices, environmental impacts, consumer issues, and organizational governance.
Judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations.
