‘Offshoring,’ ‘remote,’ ‘outsourcing,’ and ‘virtual’ has got really big over the last few years. Actually, it has been a big industry for a long time, but recently (with COVID), it reached a fever pitch.
Despite being a 30-year-old $250 Billion industry employing millions of people, outsourcing is notoriously hard to understand, difficult to navigate, and troublingly opaque.
Regardless, it continues to expand, offering an increasingly diverse range of services, such as call centers, KPO, BPO, PEO, offshore staffing, virtual teams, freelancers, and virtual assistants.
In short, they offer access to a global pool of talent, at great prices.
Voila. The solution!
Today, they launched the Time Doctor OA500 2023. It’s an objective analysis of the world’s top 500 outsourcing firms.
The Global Outsourcing Firm (BPO) Index methodology took 18 months to develop, and analyzes and tracks thousands of firms.
There’s a full report – and also a fully interactive directory. It’s all free to use. Free, free, free.
We even made a chintzy video:
The OA500 is – hopefully – a valuable tool to help businesses, like yours, understand and navigate the outsourcing market a little easier.
