RISMEDIA, May 28, 2008-Cartus Corporation, a provider of global mobility management and workforce development solutions, was named to “The Global Outsourcing 100” by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) as one of 2008’s best outsourcing service providers. This is the third straight year that Cartus has received IAOP recognition, having been named to the Global Outsourcing 100 list in 2007, and as a Top Provider of HR Outsourcing Services in 2006.
According to the company, Cartus was the only third-party relocation services provider chosen for the list, which was included in a special section in the May 5, 2008 issue of FORTUNE® magazine. The company’s ranking qualified it for “Leader” status among other elite companies.
“We are exceptionally pleased to be recognized as a leading outsourcing provider for three consecutive years,” said Kevin Kelleher, president and CEO of Cartus. “In today’s outsourcing environment, companies are finding themselves under intense pressure to deliver integrated solutions while improving cost efficiencies. Our clients’ businesses are changing with lightning speed as they respond to a rapidly shifting global economy and evolving outsourcing trends. It is imperative that we continue to provide new, innovative, flexible options to meet their needs.”
Companies were judged according to 18 criteria, including revenue growth, number of employees, workforce skills and training, management track record, and quality of customer service. Cartus was also named to a sub-category in which it excels-human resources management.
The Global Outsourcing 100, an annual ranking by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP), is devoted to featuring the best of today’s leading outsourcing service providers and tomorrow’s rising stars. Along with its publication by IAOP, the list appears each year in FORTUNE magazine in the special advertising section produced by IAOP. Companies must demonstrate excellence in categories such as size and growth, customer experience, depth and breadth of competencies, and management capabilities. Because of the rigorous application and judging process employed, The Global Outsourcing 100 defines the standard for excellence in outsourcing service delivery.
“Being selected to The Global Outsourcing 100 list shows that these companies came out on top following a rigorous application process and unbiased competition judged by an independent panel of recognized industry leaders in outsourcing,” said Jagdish Dalal, managing director, thought leadership for IAOP and chairman of the judges’ panel. “Businesses should carefully consider the outsourcing leaders named to the Global Outsourcing 100 list during their selection and due-diligence process.”
