Shared Services in Ireland
The Shared Services Forum was established in 1998 with the aim of getting all organizations in the Shared Services industry working together to address common problems encountered at the operational level.
As the industry grew in Ireland, the Forum became an important vehicle in regularly bringing these organisations together to address a wide range of issues such as country migrations (managing local/central split), staff resourcing, ensuring compliance with European legislation, project management issues, process re-engineering and use of effective technology....
In summary, the Shared Services Forum's main objectives are:
- sharing knowledge and experiences of member organisations
- maximising synergies generated from the combined interests of the group and the organisations they represent
- discussion and debate about issues that affect competitiveness
- providing updates on developments within industry
