Avasant Named to IAOP List of World's Best Outsourcing Providers
Avasant, a leading global management consulting and research firm, has once again received the highest accolade granted by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP). The IAOP Global Outsourcing 100 is the sourcing industry’s most respected independent recognition and 2022 is the 13th consecutive year that Avasant has been awarded.
The Global Outsourcing 100 and its sub-lists are important references for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the industry’s best companies. The list includes companies worldwide that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services—not just information technology and business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and capital asset management, manufacturing, and logistics. The IAOP award groups include top-tier industry leaders, advisors, and rising stars.
This year, Avasant’s top 100 position is fortified by a perfect score across all judging categories with the added IAOP distinctions of: Sustained Excellence and All Star.
Judging is based on a meticulous scoring methodology that includes a review by an independent panel of IAOP members with extensive experience in selecting service providers and advisors for their organizations.
“The last two years have emerged as the most challenging in recent history, with the entire world struggling to overcome the health and economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said IAOP CEO Debi Hamill. “Every organization in every industry has felt the impact. That’s why we are especially proud of the providers and advisors named in The 2022 Global Outsourcing 100, who have demonstrated top quality and performance excellence during unprecedented times.”
“This is a great recognition and demonstrates a strong showing for Avasant on a global basis,” said Avasant Chairman and CEO Kevin Parikh. “Selecting the right partner and sourcing advisor has never been more challenging, and IAOP provides a valuable and independent certification to help buyers identify quality consulting firms.”
The IAOP conducts an independent evaluation based on a review of the following:
· Customer references, as independently evaluated by the selected company’s top customers.
· Awards and certifications, as demonstrated through 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, as shown through corporate programs and outcomes that address such topics as environmental sustainability, gender equality, and youth education.
The 2022 panel is led by IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. The panel includes:
· Daniel Beimborn, Professor, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
· Teresa Harris, COP, Global Supplier Relationship Manager, GE
· Mary D. Lewis, COP, Sourcing Manager II, Supply Chain Management, T-Mobile
· Heiko Gewald, Professor, Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences
· Mark Zammett, COP, former Senior Director, Global Security Assessments, CIGNA
“A big thank you and congratulations to the companies named to The 2022 Global Outsourcing 100 for rising to the occasion in a particularly challenging year,” Hamill said. “Your tenacity, grit, and leadership were critical to ensuring our industry came out the other side of the global pandemic and we’re pleased to recognize you for your quality and performance excellence.”
