The IAOP SRO Chapter held a webinar August 20, 2019 on The Evolution of Socially Responsible Outsourcing and why it is relevant now more than ever. Socially Responsible Outsourcing (SRO) can trace its origins back 75 years, but integrating SRO concepts and policies today can still be a challenge for BPO buyers and service providers. IAOP’s SRO Chapter presented a panel event to discuss how to implement SRO, why it matters, and examples of how it’s being implemented in today’s largest organizations. Attendees joined representatives from Microsoft, Sprint, Alorica, and others to learn how and why to begin their SRO journey.
IAOP's Voice of the Customer and the Sales/Marketing chapters held a webinar on June 19, 2019 and turned the tables by asking if a customer is a good customer rather than if a supplier is a good supplier. This was a high energy panel discussion between suppliers and customers, where we heard expectations of a Customer Sourcing Executive and Supplier VPs as they engaged in dialogue that will ultimately help the supplier meet expectations with the help.
