This year I have a clear focus on getting to know our members better - the more we know about you as SSCs the more we can tailor our events and content to help fulfil your needs.
I had a really great call with News UK last week, understanding their SSC, what their focus is for 2020 and ensuring they know how to make the most of their membership. As relatively new members of the Forum they have already made lots of connections with other members, through our website and at our network events and Annual Conference. They really are already making the most of their membership but it was great to spend some time getting to know them better too.
I had the pleasure of visiting BDO on Monday of this week at their lovely offices in Liverpool. A relatively new SSC they have grown massively over the past 3 years and are continuing to grow in 2020. Their SSC model differs slightly from the traditional Finance or HR service delivery model. The services on offer include IT Helpdesk, Tax services, PTP, L&D and Client Onboarding. Their main internal clients are their fee earning Auditors and Advisers and the SSC provides them with back office functions. It was fantastic to see all the teams enthusiasm, professionalism and the fabulous offices they have built. BDO are also kindly hosting our Payroll event on 13th February and I know they will provide them with a very warm welcome (and some fabulous goody bags - see they photo for what is in store!).
Next week I have visits scheduled with Community Integrated Care and Yorkshire Water - I am really looking forward to meeting you all. If you want to book a visit or call, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
