A new book, Emerging ITO and BPO Markets: Rural Sourcing and Impact Sourcing, features Onshore along with other great rural outsourcing firms. It's co-authored by Mary Lacity and Joe Rottman with the University of Missouri St. Louis. A "must-read" for anyone interested in learning more about this emerging industry.
On October 17, Onshore hosted the IAOP Midwest Chapter event at the St Louis/UMSL ITE office. The topic was on Rural Outsourcing in Missouri. Onshore was honored to have Ann Veneman, the former US Secretary of Agriculture and former Ambassador for UNICEF provide her perspective on the macro issues of economic development in the middle of the country and outsourcing of knowledge worker jobs.
Ann Veneman, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will be featured as a co-keynote speaker for the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) Midwest Chapter Meeting on October 17th.
In 2009, Ann was named to Forbes Magazine's list of the World's 100 most powerful women. She's championed many great efforts for child-health issues around the world and served as Executive Director of the United Nations Children's fund (UNICEF).
