Just because summer has officially arrived doesn’t mean that HfS Research and our partnership with the Sourcing Interests Group is heading to the beach. On June 28th, SIG and HfS Research are hosting a joint webinar to present the results of our "State of Outsourcing 2011" study that we conducted with the London School of Economics. Over 1300 outsourcing professionals responded to the survey, the largest study ever to look at the outsourcing industry! Please register for the webinar and hear about the surprising business outcomes that middle market companies are experiencing as well as other dynamic trends in our evolving space. For those who attend the webinar, I will be extending a 10% discount on memberships to our Analyst Advisory program as a thank you for supporting our research study.
