CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2013

CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To help global corporations research
and compare providers for outsourcing services, the International Association
of Outsourcing Professionals^® (IAOP^®) today announced the 2013 Global
Outsourcing 100^®, the annual ranking of high-quality service providers across
all industries. Once again, Jones Lang LaSalle was named as one of the world's
top 100 outsourcing providers.

The 2013 Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors
recognize the world's best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These
rankings are based on applications received and evaluated by an independent
judging panel organized by IAOP and published in Fortune Magazine.

"As 2013 begins to see moderate growth in the economy, choosing the right
outsourcing partners will be more important than ever," said IAOP Chairman
Michael Corbett. "The Global Outsourcing 100 and the World's Best Outsourcing
Advisors lists help companies easily identify partners that will help them
emerge as leaders."

"Global competition is at an all-time high, which is reflected in this year's
rankings," said IAOP CEO Debi Hamill. "This comes at a time when companies
that outsource are scrutinizing their providers more closely. The Global
Outsourcing 100 is the only guide to help companies research and compare
service providers with whom they are considering outsourcing relationships."

"We are pleased that our integrated global service platform has been
recognized by IAOP for the fifth year," said Doug Sharp, President of
Corporate Solutions at Jones Lang LaSalle. "Being consistently named among the
world's leading outsourcing providers underscores the importance of delivering
results-driven corporate real estate solutions that increase productivity
while reducing overall costs."

Recognition for Excellence in Outsourcing

outsourcing service providers and advisors-- The Global Outsourcing 100. As
part of The Global Outsourcing 100, IAOP also introduced a new list in 2009,

the industry. The lists include companies from around the world that provide
the full spectrum of outsourcing services-- not just information technology
and business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and
capital asset management, manufacturing and logistics. They include not only
today's leaders, but also tomorrow's rising stars.

The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors is geared specifically to companies that
are outstanding global outsourcing advisors and consultants. In addition to
being part of The Global Outsourcing 100, the new list of advisors ranks the
top consultant, legal and related advisory firms globally, and is a valuable
reference tool for companies needing expert advice and guidance with their
outsourcing projects.
