Jones Lang LaSalle Named on IAOP 2011 Global Outsourcing 100 List for Third Year in a Row

International Association of Outsourcing Professionals ranks Jones Lang LaSalle as one of the world’s leading real estate outsourcing providers

SINGAPORE, 22 February 2011 —  Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it has been named as one of the world’s top 100 outsourcing providers as part of the 2011 Global Outsourcing 100®, the annual ranking of high-quality service providers across all industries as determined by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®).

The 2011 Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These rankings are based on applications received and evaluated by an independent judging panel organized by IAOP and led by IAOP Chairman Michael F. Corbett.

"Revenue data supplied by applicants for the Global Outsourcing 100 shows the size and strength of the outsourcing industry. Outsourcing is enjoying strong growth and companies are outsourcing more of their operations than ever before," said Corbett.

"The companies on The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists are proven leaders and rising stars," said Corbett. "They are the companies you want to partner with to achieve success and better outsourcing outcomes."

"It is a great honor to receive IAOP’s highly regarded distinction for the third consecutive year," said John Forrest, CEO of Corporate Solutions, Asia Pacific for Jones Lang LaSalle. "As more companies realize the benefit of strategic outsourcing partnerships, we continue to enhance our integrated service platform to deliver solutions that cut costs and maximize productivity across our corporate real estate partners’ departments, global portfolios, and organizations."

"As Asian companies grow and expand beyond their traditional domestic markets they are grappling with the opposing forces of business growth and cost reduction in order to be competitive globally," said Mr Forrest. "In response, they are increasingly adopting vendor-partnering models to outsource tactical service delivery to specialist real estate service providers."

"Just as the outsourcing wave moved through the US and Australia, we expect to see the next wave of outsourcing come from European and Asian companies over the next five years."

The Global Outsourcing 100 is an essential reference for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry. The lists include companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services — not just information technology and business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and capital asset management, manufacturing and logistics. They include not only today’s leaders, but tomorrow’s rising stars. 

As part of The Global Outsourcing 100, IAOP also introduced a new list in 2009, The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors, geared specifically to companies that are outstanding global outsourcing advisors and consultants. In addition to being part of The Global Outsourcing 100, the new list of advisors ranks the top consultant, legal and related advisory firms globally, and is a valuable reference tool for companies needing expert advice and guidance with their outsourcing projects.

"The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors rankings help companies make better informed purchasing decisions with confidence because these companies have gone through a rigorous process that has put their credentials through objective scrutiny," said Deborah Hamill, senior managing director global membership of IAOP.

Other members of the judging panel include:

  • Jagdish Dalal, COP, president, JDalal Associates, LLC, managing director of thought leadership, IAOP   
  • Teresa Harris, COP, global partner account manager, Eastman Kodak Company
  • William Hefley, Ph.D., CDP, COP, Clinical Associate Professor, Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration, University of Pittsburgh, and Director, ITSqc, LLC.
