Sourcing Works Campaign
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 sourcing 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?
Sourcing Works was GSA’s flagship campaign for 2012/13. It aimed to set the record straight and the research project would prove empirically, undeniably the value that the sourcing industry adds at both the enterprise and national level.
The aim was to right the many misconceptions that surround our industry with a yearlong programme of activity including research, PR, publications, education and culminating in the Sourcing 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 Sourcing Works LinkedIn Group (sub-group of the NOA 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.
