IAOP® Recognizes IBA Group in The 2016 Global Outsourcing 100
On June 6, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) published The Global Outsourcing 100®, the listing of the world's top outsourcing service providers in a special advertising feature of the 2nd Quarter 2016 FORTUNE 500 issue of FORTUNE® magazine. IBA Group is included in the Leaders category and recognized for Customer References, Awards & Certifications, Programs for Innovation, and Programs for Corporate Social Responsibility.
Companies of all sizes, from around the world and from across the entire outsourcing industry — information technology outsourcing, business process outsourcing, facility services, real estate, design, testing, manufacturing and logistics just to name a few — applied for inclusion on the list.
The Global Outsourcing 100 list comprises both larger established global firms referred to as `Leaders,' as well as smaller, faster growing firms referred to as `Rising Stars.' Companies are first organized by Leader or Rising Star criteria and then evaluated based on the following five judging categories.
1. Size and Growth as measured by revenue, employees, and global presence.
2. Customer References as demonstrated through value being created at the company's top customers
3. Awards and Certifications as demonstrated through the value being created through industry recognition, and relevant organizational and individual professional certifications.
4. Programs for Innovation as demonstrated through specific programs and resulting outcomes that produce new forms of value for customers.
5. 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.
IBA Group was recognized as a top company in four of the five categories, receiving the highest possible score (8) for Customer References and Corporate Social Responsibility. Compared with last year's results, IBA Group was awarded two more distinctions in judging categories and improved its overall score by 0.75. In addition, the company's overall score exceeded the average score of all companies participating in this year's program by 1.35.
“Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand now is what makes each one exceptional. The Global Outsourcing 100 has done just that. We're proud to recognize IBA Group for being among the highest rated companies in customer references, company awards and certifications, programs for innovation, and corporate social responsibility,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO.
Sergei Levteev, IBA Group Chairman, added: “We are happy to be included in the Leaders group of The Global Outsourcing 100 for the fourth consecutive year. Being recognized as a top company in four of the five judging categories is also a significant achievement. We improved the last year's results and look forward to new accomplishments.”
He went on to say: “IBA Group is currently celebrating the opening of its own campus in Belarus High Tech Park. It is also an important milestone for the company. I am confident these achievements will inspire the IBA team to deliver the highest standards of performance and excellence.”
