Introducing the SSF UK Practitioner Networks
Our Shared Services Forum UK Networks have been set up to help promote best practice, drive process improvement and showcase excellence whilst also ensuring our members have a unique platform for topical debate and networking.
Networks are set up when a group of members identify a topic or work function where there is a shared appetite to come together on a regular basis to ensure a particular function has the time, insight and energy assigned to drive high quality business meetings.
All member organisations are welcome to send one or more delegates to one or all Network Meetings and there are many opportunities to host or speak at such events.
Practitioner Networks do not have a fixed life-span, some have been operating successfully for a number of years and others are at the start of their journey. Each Network has a Chair from a member organisation who commits to putting meeting agendas together and sourcing speakers with the support of the Forum Manager. Networks are undoubtedly the lifeblood of Shared Services Forum UK and we are extremely grateful to our past and current chairs who give up their time voluntarily to ensure the success of each individual Network.
Currently we have six active Networks: Credit Control, FA&R, HR SSC, Lean, Payroll and Purchase to Pay (P2P).
Please note that there is no additional cost associated with attendance and meeting's generally take place at a member SSC.
If you are interested in speaking at, hosting, or sponsoring one of our current active Networks please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the relevant Network Chair.
