THE HOME OF THE GLOBAL SOURCING STANDARD

GSA PROFESSIONAL AWARDS





The GSA 2021 PROFESSIONAL AWARDS ARE NOW OPEN.

GSA Professional awards are a distinct set of accolades recognising talent in outsourcing and shared services, showcasing individuals and function teams who make a big difference, but remain largely unsung in the wider context of the global sourcing industry. 

Why enter?

  • Raise your company profile amongst the sourcing elite
  • Impress partners, clients and investors
  • Showcase your experience
  • Acknowledge your team's efforts

And much more!
