UCMS Group Russia, together with HRportal.ru, published an article entitled “What do you need to know about SSC?”. The article describes the key milestones in the SSC (Shared Service Centers) industry globally.
SSC began to appear in Europe and the U.S. a couple of decades ago. SSC started as a way to consolidate and optimize the organization’s administrative functions in areas such as Accounting, Payroll or HR.

An important point is that all respondents who are already using SSC are not planning to abandon this model in the future.
