On the 25th October, 2012 Andrew Rothwell and Stephanie Lambert from the shared services research team headed to Wroclaw, Poland to facilitate the 12th CIMA Loughborough Forum. For the first time the event was hosted in Poland, very kindly by Hewlett Packard Global Business Services.
The day included three interactive sessions surrounding talent management, marketing and branding and best practice in the shared service centre (SSC). Discussions were rich and insightful and have clarified areas of interest and topics for future focus. A range of SSC employees attended, all bringing different and valuable input to the table.
The day also saw a very well organised and informed tour of HP’s global SSC with a specific look and introduction in to their marketing department.
The event has prompted a further series of questions which will hopefully be addressed in the near future at another Poland based forum – watch this space!
Many thanks to CIMA and HP for ensuring this event ran smoothly. Materials will be available to members on the Forum members page shortly.
