Fair Trade Outsourcing Chosen as Part of Impact Sourcing Champions Index

Fair Trade Outsourcing proudly announces its inclusion into the Impact Sourcing Champions Index, IAOP’s inaugural list of companies that have distinguished themselves as trailblazers in Impact Sourcing.

“This initiative is close to my heart and it’s easy to understand why,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP’s CEO. “Doing well by doing good is now more important than ever. Ensuring that disadvantaged populations have access to formal employment and decent work, allowing them to improve their conditions, acquire a career, and thus lift themselves, their families, and their communities out of poverty is one of the most sustainable means to economic growth. I am proud of the work these organizations are doing and look forward to growing the index.”

Fair Trade Outsourcing’s inclusion into this prestigious list marks a major milestone in its organizational history. Its unique labor management system, which makes extensive use of the fair trade outsourcing methodology, has led the company to produce exemplary results that outpace the performance of other BPOs and even the industry itself. The results of its impact initiatives could be seen in the whitepaper, “Agents Who Want to Be There,” published in September 2019.

Fair Trade Outsourcing has been working with the Global Impact Sourcing Coalition or GISC in adopting the Impact Sourcing Standard. The company finds ways to hire and provide career development opportunities to people who have limited prospects in the Philippines, Ghana, and the United States.

About the Impact Sourcing Champions Index in partnership with the Global Mentorship Initiative

This is IAOP’s inaugural list of companies that have distinguished themselves as trailblazers in Impact Sourcing. To be included in the index, companies submitted an online application, which was then reviewed by IAOP’s Social Impact Committee. The index is showcased on IAOP’s website, in PULSE Magazine and in the October 2020 “Change the World” issue of FORTUNE Magazine®.
