Driving the development and adoption of shared services and outsourcing in the GCC

The adoption of a shared services model has become a popular solution with companies around the globe seeking to cut operating costs whilst simultaneously improving core service delivery. Yet in January 2017 the SSON Analytics team had identified just 139 SSCs in the Middle East: that’s less than 0.05% of the 5812 found globally.

So what is holding us back?

SSON is delighted to be returning to Bahrain for the 5th Middle East Shared Services & Outsourcing Summit.
This government supported, multi-industry, high-profile event will take place from 10-13 September 2017 in Manama, Bahrain.

Gathering together Heads of Shared Services, Heads of Business Transformation, business owners, C-suite and more from both multi-national and regional organisations across the GCC region and beyond, the Middle East Shared Services & Outsourcing Summit is the event to attend for any shared services practitioners who’re looking to increase their knowledge in the set up, maintenance and continuous improvement of their shared services model.
