WHERE IT ALL STARTED.......
Shared Services Forum UK is the only not-for-profit, national membership community for the Shared Services sector. It was the brain-child of a group of like-minded leaders in the Shared Services industry, including our current Board Directors, who recognised the core value of peer-to-peer knowledge sharing. We understand that Shared Services organisations are forever under pressure to reduce costs, do more with less, and yet also demonstrate innovation, value-add and growth in support of the overall business. With a proud and successful history over 20 years of operating, we focus on delivering our core values of community, evolution and leadership, to provide our members with opportunities to learn, develop and perform, individually, as teams and as shared services and global business services operations. We put sharing firmly at the centre of our membership community - and year on year the Forum continues to grow and evolve.
We are an independent member organisation with a growing community, reaching out to thousands of SSC practitioners across the UK working within Shared Services and Global Business Service operations. We offer an extensive package of member benefits which includes knowledge sharing, problem solving, networking, learning and development and invites to our exclusive events.
Our networks connect you with like-minded practitioners in the industry, predominately from the SME tier, bringing together a wealth of cross-functional experience and opinion. Our members operate in a variety of professional roles, from both public and private organisations, representing numerous business sectors, all with a common interest in the evolution and sharing of best practices. To date, more than 100 public and private sector organisations have helped shape the Forum and our membership is wonderfully diverse across the sectors.
