"Integreon is honored to receive, for the third time in the last four years, the distinguished recognition of the IAOP as one of the world's best outsourcing service providers," said Bob Gogel, CEO of Integreon. "Our success stems from the positive culture we've built and is a strong reflection of the focus, dedication and hard work of all our many Associates around the world."
Recognised firms in the Global Outsourcing 100 were evaluated by the IAOP following meticulous scoring by an independent judging panel with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors. By identifying the world's best outsourcing service providers and advisors, this list helps buyers compare and select the most suitable providers for their needs.
The 2016 judging panel was organised by the IAOP and led by IAOP Chairman Michael F. Corbett and IAOP CEO Debi Hamill, who noted, "Choosing the right partners is more important than ever. Companies that outsource, not only in the traditional sense but also through the wide array of the ever-changing collaborative business models are scrutinising their providers very closely.
