Online PR News – 23-May-2012 – Atlanta, GA – ScottMadden, Inc., recently sponsored and presented at IQPC and SSON’s 11th Annual HR Shared Services and Outsourcing Summit, held May 14–16 in Chicago. This conference featured leading industry experts discussing top HR shared services challenges and offered opportunities to exchange best practices.

Scott Manning, partner at ScottMadden, and Tina Krebs, director at ScottMadden, presented “Integrating Business Partners into your HR Shared Services Model.” This interactive, practical workshop stressed the role of a business partner to the success of the shared services service-delivery model. The discussion offered strategies and tactics for transforming the business partner role to fit a shared services model and provided methods to evolve the business partner role as HR shared services grows.

Additionally, Mr. Manning and Mrs. Krebs presented “Human Resources Shared Services Benchmarking Study—How Do You Compare?” This presentation provided a brief overview of a study designed by ScottMadden and facilitated by APQC. This report provided reliable, comparative benchmarking data that attendees could use to validate their operation’s performance to senior leadership to improve overall efficiency and effectiveness of HR shared services.

“ScottMadden initiated the Human Resources Shared Services Benchmarking Study in 2011, because we found focused HR shared services metrics for up-and-running operations to be lacking.” stated Mr. Manning. “The reaction to our HR Shared Services & Outsourcing Summit presentation was extremely positive and provided a strong indication that this survey will fill a void for HR shared services practitioners.”

Doug Utley, partner at ScottMadden, presented “The Business Case for Shared Services.” This discussion focused on ScottMadden’s perspective on how to construct a winning business case that satisfies the finance community and generates support for the shared services concept. Mr. Utley provided insight into the steps required when establishing a current state baseline, discussed how to maintain the business case, and demonstrated how to leverage the updated business case for change management purposes.
