London, UK (PRWEB) October 17, 2006
Alsbridge, the independent advisers on shared services, outsourcing and offshoring today announce it has won the National Outsourcing Association’s award for “Outsourcing Adviser of the Year” and “Outsourcing Professional of the Year” at the NOA awards ceremony, which took place 12 October 2006.
The awards, which were announced at a glittering ceremony at London’s Radisson Portman Hotel, were hosted by Anthony Hilton, the financial editor of the Evening Standard. Attracting over 350 professionals from the UK’s outsourcing industry, the awards aim to reward organisations for success in outsourcing projects, as well as raising awareness for the importance of best practice in outsourcing.
Alsbridge won the prestigious “Outsourcing Adviser of the Year” award for the success of their projects and the tangible results achieved for clients, having demonstrated best practice and innovation in their approach to advising on a number of complex outsourcing projects.
The “Outsourcing Professional of the Year” accolade was picked up by Principal Consultant, Howard Spode, who won the award after impressing judges with his all round experience within outsourcing and his interest in sharing his experience through coaching less experienced team members.
This makes it a hat trick success for Alsbridge, who earlier this month picked up the award for “Top Sourcing Consultants 2006” by HRO Today magazine.
Tim Lloyd, Managing Partner of Alsbridge Europe commented: “Alsbridge is growing from strength to strength and our recent awards for outstanding achievement are testament to the client results we have helped achieve this year. It is marvellous that the outsourcing industry as a whole has recognised our impact on the market place and our pivotal role in setting best practice standards across the board.”
