When it comes to American jobs, actions speak louder than words. I’ve fought to save thousands of Long Island jobs at places such as Brookhaven National Laboratory and Gabreski Airport, and while Randy Altschuler is “offended” by criticism of his creation and leadership of OfficeTiger, it is important for voters to know Altschuler’s record of outsourcing American jobs.
Altschuler seized every opportunity he could to brag about his outsourcing prowess and even accepted an award for leading the outsourcing of American jobs. Don’t just take my word for it, read about OfficeTiger yourself.
OfficeTiger referred to itself as “The next-generation of outsourcing,” on its website. [Source]
From the OfficeTiger homepage (in 2005): “OfficeTiger’s vision is to change the way the world does business by leading the new generation of industry-focused, judgment-based Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) solutions. Our mission is to be the best and largest diversified industry-focused BPO services provider, both onsite and offshore, offered from anywhere in the world, on the bedrock of our four business process outsourcing principles: Meritocracy, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment to our clients.” [Source]
OfficeTiger co-founder and co-CEO Joseph Sigelman said he hoped to lead the move of white-collar jobs from the U.S. [Source]
In a letter Altschuler wrote for Princeton publication Major Choices, he called OfficeTiger “One of the earliest companies providing high-end outsourcing services in India to major American and European companies.” [Source]
In 2005, Altschuler accepted an award on behalf of OfficeTiger saying, “It is so great being recognized for the innovation we bring to front line professional outsourced services. Over the years the outsourcing market has evolved greatly. As it continues to evolve, we look forward to providing our clients with more brainpower, deeper thought, and judgment-dependent analysis very few providers can match.” [Source]
The Financial Times said business is “roaring” at OfficeTiger in an article publicized by OfficeTiger itself. [Source]
The Financial Times said OfficeTiger’s merger with R.R. Donnelley would create a BPO “Beast.” [Source]
The Economic Times also highlighted OfficeTiger’s role in outsourcing. [Source]
This is typical Randy Altschuler. A few years ago, he was quick to brag about his success in moving American jobs to India. Now that he is running for office, he’s doing everything he can to hide his disastrous record on jobs—showing once again, he will say or do anything for a vote. Altschuler may be “offended” by increased scrutiny on his outsourcing past, but the middle class families he put out of work deserve much more than his feigned outrage.
