OUTsourcing Works. The GSA will prove it.
Outsourcing has an image problem. It’s a dirty word, in many peoples eyes.
This must change. Considering the vast amount of people it employs, and the huge sums of tax they pay, let alone the value we know it adds, we must not stand still and accept that a staggering 80% of the general public do not think outsourcing is beneficial to UK PLC (according to a GSA research project The Public Perception of Outsourcing- as featured in the Outsourcing Yearbook 2012 Spring Supplement).,
What are we going to do about it?
Outsourcing Works is the GSA’s flagship campaign for 2012/13. It aims to set the record straight and an upcoming research project will prove empirically, undeniably the value that the outsourcing industry adds at both the enterprise and national level. We will right the many misconceptions that surround our industry with a yearlong programme of activity including research, PR, publications, education and culminating in the Outsourcing Works Symposium.
How do I pledge my support?
Individuals and companies alike can make a difference and pledge their support to the campaign by joining the Outsourcing Works LinkedIn Group (sub-group of the GSA LinkedIn group). Supporters will receive updates on the campaign including case studies, best practice guides and invites to Outsourcing Works events.
Even better still, engage in the debate, provide a case study, host an event, stand up and speak or write an article. For more details on how to get involved and make this campaign your campaign, please view the document Outsourcing Works- The Campaign below or contact Kerry Hallard on firstname.lastname@example.org.
