it run your tailor-made governance that is appropriately adjusted to your business. Lastly, the cost arbitrage is still a key element of the business case but this won’t last forever so plan ahead of the value proposition to your stakeholders.

What is your company doing in CEE? Discovery GBS operations were set up back in 2017 in Warsaw as part of the wider transformation initiative. Having the right people at the right place at that time allowed us to well-define the GBS development roadmap with a focus on making it global, E2E and customer-oriented. It seems that we’ve done quite a good job as for the last two years we are recognized by SSON as one of the Top 20 most admired Shared Services Organizations. Our team is a mix of very talented individuals working in areas like PTP, CTC, RTR, Content Accounting, Payroll, Controllership, Technology and FP&A COE supporting the Discovery EMEA organization. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. The media environment is a very dynamic one and the understanding of our customer business is critical for our operations. That’s why when setting up Discover GBS in Warsaw we wanted to be close to our core business. On the global Discovery map, Poland is our second biggest market after the US so keeping GBS operations close to it helps us in better understanding current business challenges and needs. At the same time, it’s a great opportunity from the people side as they are able to really “feel” our business which is GBS – the environment is priceless. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? When setting up the GBS in 2017 it was all about “doing the right thing” and building the foundations of our future organization. We completed the first transition of our finance processes (PTP/CTC). With the Discovery acquisition of Scripps Networks Interactive business in 2018 we launched our global transformation programme; part of it was further growth of our GBS center. The transition of remaining processes i.e. RTR, Content Accounting or Revenue Accounting was completed in May 2019. With these processes, we may say that all the finance transition that was planned is completed and we can get started with building value to our business on top of just cost saving. We are currently finalizing our proprietary Business Excellence & Transformation methodology based on Design Thinking, TLC (TOC + Lean + Six Sigma) and Agile that will allow us to create an ecosystem for building our future intelligent operations.

RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? The RPA topic was initiated in Discovery around two years ago. The main goal was to try out this technology and see what value it may bring to operations. Since that time, we have 12 bots in the production but the further development in this area was slowed down as a conscious decision with further development to be prepared with integrated Business Excellence approach as the core of it. Right now, we have a well-stabilized GBS center so we are coming back to the RPA topic but we rather prefer to call it simply “process automation”. In the coming months it will become an integrated element of our Business Excellence & Transformation agenda, where we enable our service delivery to make the best out of it. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. Firstly, let’s remember that it’s all about people, no matter how advanced your technology is or will be in the near future! Your main and most important asset will be people. Indeed, the rules of the game are changing as we are currently transitioning from managing only people to the management of people and bots under one roof. We all must prepare for this revolution and with this, we should equip our employees as well. Secondly, one size doesn’t fit it all so don’t look for “copy & paste” solutions. “Best practices” are great but the whole beauty of setting up SSC/BPO operations is to make

Talent and Employment Issues. We had very dramatic growth in the last six months due to the transition - we hired about 40 people in a very short period. I must admit it was a great success as we recently completed the people placement assessment and all of the positions were filled with the right person. After this transition we grew to over 100 employees, mostly working in the finance area i.e. PTP, RTR, CTC, Content Accounting, Controllership and enabling functions like Financial Compliance or Technology support. People are always at the heart of Discovery, and to better support them we recently initiated a global HR transformation initiative to create a modern, digital workplace to enhance the way we work. Everything started with rebranding our HR to new People & Culture team, then implementing the reimagined ‘Performance Management’ where we have moved away from a year-end assessment program and into a new agile program that focuses on real time feedback. On top of it, as GBS we are working on the methodology that will support the development of the “skills of the future” required to run intelligent operations. From my own perspective I must say that the organizational culture is unique and working here is a real pleasure. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. The cost arbitrage is always at the base of any similar business case but for us it wasn’t the core one. For us it was always about the value that we deliver to the business. A great example from Discovery is that the GBS enabled the synergy between F&A, FP&A and the business that translated directly into positive financial results of the organization. An example of such synergy is the huge impact the GBS had in improving the company’s Cashflow - the key metric for our CFO. Wojtek is an enthusiast of Operational Excellence with the use of such methodologies as Lean, Six Sigma or ToC. Awarded by LEIP for a best case study of Lean Management implementation in Poland. Experienced Project and Programme Manager with a unique skill set based on PMI, Prince2 and Agile/Scrum that allows him delivering strategic transformation initiatives in a pragmatic and outcome-oriented way. Professional experience gathered in global corporations such as Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, CBRE and Discovery. Privately loves challenges and going through life with the rule that there are no limits and everything begins with the first step.

Talent and Employment Issues. Circle K has 504 employees, we’ve grown steadily adding new tasks to our scope. Last year we were approximately 470 FTE’s. For the future I see it’s going to be a continuous steady growth due to increasing of the scope of activities. Employees in Riga have skills and work discipline. In combination with advanced technologies and infrastructure, this makes it a great combination for further development of GBS sector. Riga is a city yet to be discovered by GBS sector, therefore having a lot of potential. Nevertheless – we’re working hard on retaining our talent and investing a lot in people developme nt. Decrease in workforce availability is a future risk for our region. I am a part of Circle K team since 2016. Before taking the position of Managing Director I had opportunity to lead team of Operational accounting department. As well I have solid background of working for large international corporations in the telecoms and aviation industries. I hold an Executive MBA from Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.

Radek Mierzejewski Managing Director DFDS Polska, Poznań Parent Company: DFDS A/S, Copenhagen What is your company doing in CEE? Our Poznan office started in 2013 and now employs over 200 staff covering traditional RtR, PtP, OtC and Master Data functions for the DFDS Group in 20 European countries. We also have specialist areas in Indirect Taxation, Cash Management, Self-Billing, Risk Management, Credit Control, Business Intelligence & Analytics and Continuous Improvement. We have recently expanded our Master Data function to include servicing over 10,000 product items for all the goods we sell on our ferry routes such as Copenhagen-Oslo and Newcastle-Amsterdam. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. Centralizing our back-office operations into one location was a strategic value-add decision allowing us to standardize and harmonize, align our process to best practices and ensure high quality and efficiency. Poznan was chosen for several reasons including high quality of the education system, good level of language skills, availability of talent at competitive market rates, availability of suitable office space and Poland’s EU membership. The short distance between Poznan and Copenhagen also contributed to our decision to be here. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? We have just concluded our 2-year Standardization and Harmonization program which consolidated 686 various procedures down to 164 standard operating procedures (SOPs) which are now all loaded into our Knowledge Base for easy reference and ongoing review. While I’m very proud of this result, the biggest change is in our collective mindset where we no longer view ourselves as a “cost centre”

but a “value-add centre” and an integral member of DFDS Group. That mindset has enabled us to partner across the wider group and push ourselves to find better solutions such as our very own award-winning automation and RPA. We are also pushing ahead with our Centre of Excellence mandate with our Quality Assurance drive and Performance Management Framework initiative. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? RPA and Automation is the next value-add phase after standardization and harmonization and naturally will continue to be an area of focus for us. In addition, 2019/2020 will be especially exciting for us as DFDS Group is acquiring a new ERP system and we are playing a central role in both its testing and selection as well as implementation. Poznan office now serves as the ERP project “hub” and a focal point for a significant number of scheduled project activities. Looking at the next 2-3 years, I expect that the new ERP system will further accelerate our RPA and Automation journey and free up time for more business partnering, analysis and controlling activities. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE.

“newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. SSC/BPO operations need to focus on operational excellence, knowledge hubs and innovation as traditional SSC/BPO concept of labour arbitrage is no longer a compelling business case and will continue to decline as Poland and wider CEE continue towards parity with Western counterparts. Proper strategic roadmaps are therefore critical which clearly identify core areas of competence and how these can be leveraged upon to add value and contribute to wider organizational goals and objectives. Finally, pay particular attention to hiring good leadership that will drive and execute this value-add strategy. Talent and Employment Issues. We have grown slightly in the last two years to cover business growth and acquisitions as well as expanded our Master Data to include product items. However, our actual employment levels have remained relatively stable as we continue to deliver efficiency gains and focus on value-add activities such as RPA and Automation. In terms of talent and employment issues, today’s graduates are tech savvy and are looking to make a difference. To attract, retain and keep your top talent motivated it is important to align roles and responsibilities with employees’ key strengths and interests and to have good career management framework and extensive training and development opportunities in place.

Manager’s Profile

2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. • Establish a strong management team early in the process • Hire experienced HR leads to navigate local regulation • Focus on staff engagement

Managing Director – Gdansk Office Site Lead State Street Bank (Krakow & Gdansk) Parent Company: State Street Corporation, Boston, Massachusetts

What is your company doing in CEE? Since our entry into the European market in 1970, State Street has built a strong presence in the region and today has approximately 10,000 employees throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our local expertise enables us to offer clients a complete range of financial services across the investment spectrum. Since establishing our Kraków operation in 2007, we’ve grown rapidly and now employ more than 5,000 professionals in two locations – Kraków and Gdansk. Our employees provide a range of complex investment servicing solutions including end-to-end investment fund accounting, derivatives processing, securities valuation, financial reporting, hedge fund administration, middle-office support, transfer agency, private equity and real assets, enterprise risk management, anti-money laundering (AML), and investment compliance. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. In 2007, we established our first office in Kraków, Poland in order to: • Expand support for European-based clients by building scope, scale and revenues outside the US • Implement client service enhancements by standardizing our global operating model In advance of entry to Krakow and the more recent Gdansk office launch, State Street performed an extensive regional analysis of potential locations. Both Poland locations were evaluated against criteria such as real estate, infrastructure, market competition, the availability of potential workforce and access to well-educated university candidates. Political and economic stability were other key factors that influenced the decision making process.

How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? The range and complexity of services has increased, while low-complexity activities have been transferred to Asia. To highlight the continually increasing complexity of roles in Poland, we welcomed the addition of State Street Global Advisors, the asset management business of State Street Corporation, in 2018. This represents the first front office investment management roles for State Street in Poland. We foresee the trend of increased complexity to continue with more focus on operating model transformation and client facing roles in the coming years. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? State Street has numerous transformation projects being driven from its Poland locations. These initiatives are aimed at identifying and executing opportunities for process improvement through automation and digitization. Robotics is a key element of the transformation exercise and we expect the program to continue for the foreseeable future as we continue to identify new opportunities.

Talent and Employment Issues. In its first 10 years of operation in Poland, State Street has dynamically grown from 72 employees in 2007 to 3500 in 2017. Aided by expansion of the Gdansk office (opened in 2016) and a fourth office in Krakow (opened in 2018), the company currently has more than 5,000 employees in Poland. There are many impressive things about the local workforce including a very strong work ethic, excellent language skills, a desire to succeed, and high levels of education and ambition. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. Aligned with the company value of “Always Finding Better Ways”, State Street in Poland has established a culture of innovation, collaboration and strong change management. This has supported us annually in achieving a 10 percent efficiency target. Additionally, following the introduction of hot-desking and flex-work arrangements, State Street has increased its office capacity by 15 percent in Poland. Alex began his career at State Street in Boston over 20 years ago and has since held managerial and leadership positions in a number of international locations including Cape Town, London and Krakow. After seven years in Krakow, Alex relocated to Gdansk to lead the opening of the new office location in January, 2016. As the general manager in Gdansk, he provides local oversight and governance over the Gdansk management team, support and corporate functions, as well as representing State Street in local market forums, universities and business associations.

In 2019 employment reached over 1000 people for both sites. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE.

this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? Groupon has made a significant investment into RPA by building its own RPA platform instead of investing into COTS solutions. Thanks to that we are offering more flexible and tailored solutions to our internal business partners. Our primary goal is to remove inefficiencies in existing business processes, as well as free up employees time and let them focus on value work. In the next 2-3 years we aim to expand our platform even further to let users decide on certain aspects of automated solutions for the sake of flexibility, but also explore integrating AI capabilities into RPA. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. • Remember people are the biggest assets, hence take care of employee satisfaction from day 1.

fessional to people manager. The number of people hired in the last two years has grown significantly, over 35% while the attrition remains very low. Groupon is focused on driving customer experience by improving its operational efficiency, so looking for new opportunities to increase it GROUPON decided to move some competencies to Poland where the domestic labor market could provide us with highly qualified, educated employees while keeping the competitive costs of hiring. We expect to grow up to 10% of current hiring level until the end of 2019. GRP is the first place of professional work for the majority of our employees. More than 30% of them have changed their roles internally during the year, having great career opportunity to test themselves in various tasks and positions - both horizontally as well as vertically. We have created the effective internal talent marketplace focused on building opportunities to grow and we engaged our employees to own an individual’s career by her/himself as we prefer the ‘grow’ model than ‘buy’ when thinking about the acquisition of competencies from the market. This links greatly with the need of current workers generations who expect the diversity and flexibility at work in a few dimensions, where the individual development is one of the ‘hottest’ pointed out in the research. We want them to ‘think Groupon first’ when considering next move in their career. A somewhat more challenging task is to gain experts for the roles of professionals. in turn, these people are attracted to us with a real opportunity to influence processes and shape the reality of how we want to be perceived by customers and partners. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved by operating in CEE. The primary focus of Groupon operations is to deliver the highest quality and ensure environment for continuous process improvements. We are therefore proud to have obtained greater transparency across our business lines allowing best solutions and practices to be identified and applied. Strong business expertise in SSC industry; Focused on operational excellence and service enhancements; Professional with +10 years of experience including international assignments.

Talent and Employment Issues. Due to high demand for talent and a number of investors growing YoY, the labor market becomes more and more difficult; employers and employees need to remain at sync in regards to achieving business objectives each year. That is why talent retention is key. These strategies aren’t only related to salary packages but with the type of activities offered to employees such as using top technologies or stimulating and innovative customer projects. Making sure our employees are keen in working with us for a long--term period; it’s also about the work environment and the corporate philosophy. In a fast-paced labor market, the new generations of employees want to know that they create a difference in their companies. That is why we are a people based business with trust at the heart of our value system, using methodologies such as Agile and Sense & Respond to empower our employees to have a say in how we deliver our services. It is also why we’re very much invested in our Responsible Business program, offering our staff the opportunity to contribute to society and have a balanced work life.

Manager’s Profile

Lion Paauwe Head of Finance Services Center Signify Poland, Łódź Parent Company: Signify NV (The Netherlands)

What is your company doing in CEE? Our Finance Services Center (FSC) is positioned right at the heart of our Finance organization in Signify. The activities being performed are all non-transactional of nature as the transactional work is being executed by our BPO provider. The activities performed in our center focus primarily on Finance, but also include Procurement, Supply Chain and IT Order Desk. The focus in the activities is on managing and controlling the end-to-end processes, driving process improvements, managing the BPO provider, performing decision-based, judgmental processes, and providing forward-looking business insights. The FSC was created in December 2017 and currently employs around 110 FTEs. Within Finance we have 3 Centers of Excellence (CoE) delivering accounting operations services in Europe: Purchase to Pay, Order to Cash and Record to Report. On top of that we have 3 CoEs delivering FP&A (Financial Planning and Analysis) services: focusing on sales and margin in Europe, and globally on functional costs and on R&D). Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. In October 2017 the decision was made to centralize all European activities for beforementioned Finance processes in Łódź, Poland. Poland was chosen as we have a big industrial footprint as well as the biggest commercial activities in Eastern Europe, in combination with a well-developed infrastructure and dynamic business services industry. The decision for Łódź was made due to its workforce potential, our good experience from the past (we created our own transactional shared service center more than 15 years ago in Łódź, which we later outsourced to our BPO provider), the friendly climate for investments as well as the availability of high-class offices. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? In the first year our organization has seen a rapid inflow of employees (all people have been recruited, as it was a greenfield approach) in combination with a quite aggressive approach of incoming transitions in terms of speed and at the same time standardizing while transitioning. We have created a bestin-class FSC and our successful journey has been noticed throughout the company. In

2019

that sense we have created the foundation for further successes from which the business will benefit beyond what has already been achieved. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? Together with our BPO provider we have implemented several robots in the transactional processes which are performed by them, as most of the benefits from RPA can be achieved in the area of transactional activities. We are planning to start the implementation of our first robot for activities done in-house. Important step is to have a fully standardized process prior to the automation. For the robotization we are currently in the phase of selecting the right partner. We expect substantial benefits in terms of process efficiency and quality of work. On top of robots, we are further optimizing our processes by focusing on making them touchless which will increase the first-time right level as well as by reducing queries with the implementation of chatbots. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. Dare to think bold! With the creation of a high value shared service organization, strategic value is unlocked in terms of process control, standardization & efficiency, labor arbitrage and end-to-end process ownership. If a company considers outsourcing of activities, make sure to strike the right balance between captive and outsourced. High value activities

Talent and Employment Issues. As our center is now operational for 18 months, we have now reached a stable level in terms of number of employees. In traditional shared service centers, you will see a big change in required skill levels of people as robotization will take over many basic activities, while in our center the expectations on impact of automation are much smaller. In Łódź we see the job market slowly changing and becoming more competitive, but the job market still offers opportunities. Our approach towards engaging our people, our well-established development programs and the vibrant workplace we offer, all contribute to retention of our talents. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. Our main goal of setting up the center was to centralize activities, standardize processes, drive process improvements, improve quality and increase automation levels. With our transition approach “transform while moving” we offset additional risk by increasing speed in bringing value. We delivered operational excellence beyond expectations. Since October 2017 Lion has been responsible for the establishment of Signify’s center in Łódź and more recently increased his scope with a global process responsibility. Lion joined Philips (Signify was formerly known as Philips Lighting) in 2005 and has been instrumental in the development of finance shared services since 2007. He contributed to the outsourcing of its transactional Shared Service Centers, designing, and subsequently optimizing, the process blueprint between captive and outsourced centers. Since the split from Philips, he designed and improved the service delivery model and the finance footprint strategy. He has over 25 years of experience, and has worked in various senior roles (Operations, Transformation, Controlling, Contract/Partnership Management) within the Shared Services and Outsourcing Industry, in captive as well as FAO, HRO and ITO environments.

require difference skill sets and interpersonal skills compared to transactional activities and in the long run a big part of these transactional activities will be robotized. Attract and retain high caliber talents is paramount to success as well as to build high performance teams. Strive for the right balance in terms of diversity as bringing different cultures together delivers greater value. Take ownership for high value processes (and therefore go beyond transactional activities) and go for speed in transition and implement a performance culture. Lean thinking including visual boards should become an integral element of the operations. Embrace risk as every challenge is an opportunity.

Manager’s Profile

automation we will significantly minimize the amount of repetitive work in the next 2-3 years. However, I wouldn’t expect a negative impact on employment. It will free up our teams’ potential to do more creative work with usage of new technologies like AI, edge computing, Data & Analytics, as I presume these areas will be growing in the very near future.

Director of Business Service Center GSK Poland, Poznan Parent Company: GSK London

What is your company doing in CEE? GSK Business Service Center in Poznan was established in 2005 and since then has been constantly developing and growing, both in human capital numbers and services provided. Today we employ almost 800 experts. BSC consists of Tech Center and Finance Hub. Tech Center is the part of global IT organization, managing worldwide services supporting our three business. Poznan tech teams contribute to a medicine lifecycle from research and development through production to sales. Each team member’s efforts bring differentiated, high-quality and needed healthcare products to people. Our engineers and experts specialize in the areas like: cyber security, research & development (R&D IT), manufacturing, monitoring and management systems, operations, data base and data warehouse, group cooperation tools, CRM applications, mobile applications and Multi Channel Marketing Services. In early 2019, BSC in Poznan, as a internally-trusted business partner with proven record of managing advanced services, opened Regional Finance Hub and have started creation of 200-300 Finance jobs. GSK Finance Hub is part of GSK’s new Global Finance Operating model. Our Regional Finance Hubs are not managing transactional, repetitive activities. Instead, we are bringing together GSK’s end-to-end Finance processes of Planning & Forecasting and Close & Control, as well as other specialist accounting activities. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. • Macroeconomy in Poland • Talent pool in Poznan – (100,000 students every year + top IT brands in Poznan) • Close proximity to London headquarters and European time zone were also important factors. Ongoing growth of the GSK Poznan center is a result of successful work of our teams, who proved that they can build, release and maintain most of IT services with the highest quality. Teams’ maturity brought to Poznan more advanced processes and e2e product management. Also senior leadership roles as well as key roles are more and more often located in our BSC. Ability to learn quickly and proactiveness and creativity in finding solutions are our hallmark in GSK. We value diversity and 50% of our site leadership team are women.

2019

It won’t be a surprise that Finance Hub is following the path started by IT teams! How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? Over last 3 years we almost doubled the number of employees in Tech (IT) part of the Center. Tech Center in Poznan is now contributing to allstages of GSK product development from R&D, through manufacturing to sales. The profile of tech services provided from Poznan is switching from 2nd and 3rd line of support to end-to-end product management. The Center has shifted from waterfall management into agile ways of working which have become an important paradigm in our business. Second part of BSC – the European Finance Hub - is part of our vision for the Future of GSK Finance. We’re investing around £6 million one-time cost & creating 200-300 new experienced Finance jobs. This is a twoyear programme and by the end of 2020 we expect over a quarter of GSK global sales will be supported in Poznan. Above mentioned facts give me confidence to say that we will be expanding and growing. It will be not only growth of number of employees but especially development of competencies required to provide sophisticated services - both tech and financials. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? RPA and Automation are within top priorities for Tech and Finance teams. We are already investing in Automation technology, such as Virtual Assistants or ChatBots to improve the productivity of the workforce. The digital wave will accelerate in the healthcare industry, so I expect that due to

2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. People follow good leaders – do not hesitate to invest time and energy to find the best ones. Take care of the company culture with the respect of local characteristics. Keep looking for talents – provide them the best environment to let them spread the wings. Share successes and failures and value courage as this is the fuel to innovation. Talent and Employment Issues. Almost 800 experts work in GSK Business Service Center in Poznan. We are still growing – especially in the finance area. It is obvious that in the near future we all will be taking part in the open challenge for attracting and keeping talents. Every company taking part in it should consider three important aspects – Culture, Purpose of Work and Development possibilities. Every growth on this scale requires special focus on building the right culture. Transparency, respect, teamwork, accountability and courage play a critical role in digital transformation era. The second aspect is the purpose of work – it is becoming nowadays a paradigm especially for the newly graduated people joining work market. It is also something that can distinguish company against others and help organization to stand out from the competitors. Digital transformation requires from all professionals that they double their efforts to follow the trends and be on the edge of change. The constant learning of adults is not any more wishful thinking, but rather a habit that we all shall start implementing. Every employee needs to have several opportunities for development: through trainings, on the job or through interesting assignments. In my opinion it is crucial to build the learning organization with the environment supporting employees’ own development path. Manager with 15 years of experience in IT, e-commerce and management consulting. Prior to joining GSK, Tomasz worked for Naspers, where he was responsible for delivery of IT services in CEE region. Tomasz has experience in consulting industry where he lead a variety of projects across many industries including public health, financial services, banking and telecommunication.

Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE: We see about 45% labour arbitrage vs. other countries in western Europe, and parity in central Europe. The savings we see though are beyond labour, while in efficiency (scale) and surely cost avoidance in governance.

Talent and Employment Issues. Skills needed are changing a lot quicker then formal education supplies, so companies have the responsibility to create formal training plans and to define initiatives to train on the job. Talent crunch is a real thing, language requirements a business need and not easy to recruit for. We will be testing different models to rebalance the recruitment challenges, like teleworking from different locations. We believe we offer more then just good pay, we offer growth opportunities – both professionally and for the individual.

Manager’s Profile

BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. The Aging population results in a ferocious fight for talent all across Europe. For a “newcomer” I would suggest not only to look at the size of a country in terms of labor force in absolute numbers, as usually those markets also have a higher concentration of GBS companies - which means higher competition for talents and as an investor you get less attention! Smaller and developing markets - even though they sometimes can be seen as less attractive “on paper” - can bring significant benefits.

Fredis Bikovs

CEE Business Services Directory

General Manager EVRY Latvia Parent Company: EVRY ASA, Oslo, Norway What is your company doing in CEE? EVRY is a leading Nordic Tech and consulting company with Global Delivery organization currently based in Latvia, Ukraine and India. EVRY Latvia is a multi-functional business services center which perform various levels of IT services, F&A, HR, Legal, Marketing, Sales and Back-office services, employing more than 200 people. We started in Latvia by outsourcing IT support to a BPO company, but around 6 years ago established a separate subsidiary and significantly expanded from IT support to being a multi-functional GBS company. During the next few years we will expand in terms of FTEs, but we have also high ambitions for centralizing endto-end processes, increasing automation and efficiency. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. There are several aspects. Apart of prerequisites which many countries have, like being an EU country with stable economy and transparent business environment we also needed language capabilities, specifically Nordic languages, and Latvia has the highest pool of employees speaking Nordic languages in Baltics. Secondly, both cultural and distance proximity plays an important role. Nordic countries historically have been the largest foreign investors in the economy of Latvia and we see whole generations of young talents that developed their careers in Nordic companies and are familiar with Nordic corporate culture. Thirdly, an important factor is what Latvians call Riga „a small big city”, on one hand Riga is not a huge city and it’s easy to solve day-to-day challenges, get attention from government on GBS sector and investors with few hundred FTEs are important; on the other hand, it’s big enough to provide educated talent and great quality of life which further attracts people, and good infrastructure. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years?

56

We see significant changes externally that triggers us to change how we operate. First, there is even higher fight for talent in the market, which makes HR to expand their scope to include marketing the company as a product. Secondly, push for automation and efficiency, especially in the transactional part of the business. Thirdly, GBS needs to focus more on the value it delivers to organizations apart of just labor arbitrage. Considering the decrease in transactional services and increase in more complex solutions it requires growth in employee competences, even higher pressure in fights for talents, and better integration with core business. We also see more focus on data protection and from this point of view, both the EU and Latvia have great potential for growing their GBS operations. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? We have ambitious plans in terms of automation using RPA and AI. In the next two years, we plan to consolidate different systems and platforms we are using across the Group, increase level of automation using mainly internally-developed solutions as EVRY is providing RPA and AI as a service to our external customers. This of course requires a lot of work in standardizing and centralizing processes across the group, and the benefit is that some areas of deliveries can achieve up to 50% of automation. As for employees in Latvia, we plan to have a steady growth of 10%-20% per year. This will be achieved together with the automation through the increase in scope of tasks. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/

Talent and Employment Issues. Currently we have more than 200 employees in Latvia; average growth rate in past two years was about 20% per year and even with automation plans it will be around same level of FTE growth in next 1-2 years. I believe that one of the most crucial skills that employees need is the ability to work in a constantly changing and learning environment. To stay competitive, we always need to challenge “status-quo” and I can see that in EVRY we are constantly in a change process. At the same time employees require much higher flexibility from the employer, in terms of when and where they can work. For example, we see a new trend that employees decide to take summer off and get back to the labor market in September. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. Labor arbitrage savings are individual, based on tasks near-shored and countries you nearshore from and to, and the difference might be quite significant. Apart of that, we see that in some deliveries, thanks to centralizing and changing processes we can save 20-30%. For example, in Customer service operations we target to double our efficiency through both unifying processes, governance structure and automation projects. My main experience comes from the outsourcing sector, where I have worked both for BPO and GBS companies and clients from Europe and US. At the end of 2017, I joined EVRY as General Manager, and since May 2019 I also serve as the Chairman of the Board of ABSL Latvia (Association of Business Service Leaders).

Manager’s Profile

Alise Vilka Atea Global Services, Latvia Parent Company Name and parent company headquarters: Atea ASA, Norway What is your company is doing in CEE? Atea Business Services Center in Riga has been established in 2012 and started its operations with a bit more than 50 employees providing Financial, Procurement, Licensing specific, Sales support, Customer care operations. Today we are close to 200 employees providing services also within controlling, Software Asset Management, Microsoft Operations areas and as well as have Center of Excellence for Robotic Process Automation and Business Intelligence analytics. Services are provided mainly towards Atea Group companies in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. Atea has established one central organization providing Application Packaging services back in 2006 which over time started to provide not only IT services but also support to business process (official SSC, today called Atea Business Services Center has been established around 2012). The main reasons for choosing Latvia back in 2006 was the infrastructure (direct flights to Nordic countries, internet availability) and good resource coverage with high level of education and English language skills. As for the establishment of Business Services Center, two main reason have been: already existing operations in Riga and EU funding (Job creation grant) support where also the Government of Latvia has been officially inviting Atea ASA to continue its investments in Latvia. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? The change has not been very much different from what we see across the industry: higher level of complexity within provided services, more services that are also part of the delivery towards the End-customer (it’s been quite a significant change in terms of language barrier in Nordics where back in 2012 there has been significantly higher resistance to communication in English compared to today) and more services that we provided on behalf of the whole Atea Group. Also Robotic Process Automation has been increasing its visibility and volumes that has been like a “new” thing for the Business Services Center. Looking forward we see more involvement in data analytics and data visualization using business intelligence solutions. We see Business Process improvement & automation

2019

as one of the key areas where Business Center will be a great contributor. And we would like to be the Business Partner for Business Process Transformation and Digitalization. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? We have established a Center of Excellence that works with process automation and RPA (as well as process analytics and business intelligence) – one central place for RPA (currently working mainly with UiPath) with support teams across Atea countries. Main projects have been across the business processes automation ensuring time saving and/or higher processing per one resource. Moving forward we expect to see more of endto-end process automations and less one-off, easy ideas therefore we have been increasing our process and RPA analytic capabilities. Regarding resources in next 2-3 years – I would assume that the team might be increasing by some 30-50% vs today continuing the shift that there are less people processing the operations and more working on/with technology. 2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. 1) Environment is important – SSC/BPO operations involve mainly younger generation where from our expereicne we see that „all doors shall be open” as much as the company can ensure it. We have amazing examples of people starting in one area/ position but having the environment where they are safe to say, do, play & apply for positions that they want to „try out” and they’ve turned out as our best shining talents! 2) People first – one of our company values is People. We do all we can think of (within our budgets) to ensure that our employees feel good and enjoy what they do! As for advice – perhaps the productivity will not reach the sky highs that soon, but if you are starting up, I would suggest to have a „People person” on board that would care about everyone on board no matter whether they reach the targets today or not. As we all have the capabilities to overperform, we just need the right support.

since we see the language barrier shrinking, which gives us the possibility to support not only the back-office functions but provide also customer-facing services. I think some of the functions will reduce people -count due to automation, but the shift will be also towards increasing the amount of “technology people”. Latvia has a very high share of labor with higher education which is an advantage. At the same time, there is a shift needed for the education system to have more attention towards the Global Business Services/Shared Services industry so that there would be more professionals who could continue and drive the business process transformation Today we find that people know one skill well; but we want them to cross over and integrate with other skills. I do believe that we have managed to create a good ground for finding talent, talent leadership and retention. As for the motivation part – I would say that there is no “one size fits all” solution; it is ongoing work with each person being individual and having his own challenges, her own views and dreams. There must be a good leadership team that knows how to ask, how to listen and how to make the craziest ideas and dreams happen! Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. One great example we have form the past year: the volume of processed transactions in Accounts Payable increased by 15% where the total costs paid per year have reduced by 0,5%. This has been achieved via multiple components: process improvements, process automation both: ERP system and RPA and recourse management (who does what at what timings).

I joined the company back in 2008 when we were a team of 43 employees and have been providing Application Packaging and Service Desk services. I had the great possibility to lead 3 out of our 4 ISO certifications and be part of close to all service offerings (both IT and business processes) and team setups we have built over these years reaching more than 400 employees in Atea Global Services. I am certified coach and the two coaching principles: its shall always be positive and forward looking are the ones I bring to myself and my teams life on day-to-day basis! I love the feeling when unbelievable has been achieved and even more I love to see my team members succeeding and living their dreams!

Talent and Employment Issues. Today we have close to 200 employees and the growth has been quite steady yearover-year for the past few years (by 10% from January 2018 to January 2019). For the next 2-3 years I would expect that the number of employees will continue to grow,

Talent and Employment Issues. We started up with 400 employees in 2004 and this year we will reach the level of 1700 employees, who are highly talented professionals with university degrees, speaking foreign languages. We have an amazing diversity in the office, both as nationalities, and diversity of skills. We hire them for a career, not for a position, and with a great range of initiatives we help them to reach their full potential. We are recognized as a family friendly company with a great track record of reintegrating parents after parental leave. Our employer branding initiatives are very popular both internally and externally, the established strategy helps to retain top talent, and also to make sure that our candidate pipeline is always full.

Automation is part of our Strategy to improve Customer Interaction and Efficiency. We are planning to automate the simplest processes we have in the next 12 months. We are following a step by step approach to validate the effectiveness of this solution. We are not planning to automate bigger operational processes as of now, but this is the long-term plan.

2-3 specific bits of advice to other firms keen to optimize their SSC/ BPO operations in CEE. Or advice to a “newcomer” considering setting up in CEE. Cooperation with Universities to help increase the talent pull. If we fight over the same number of talent what we have today, we will fail. We have to make this ocean more blue. • access to government and EU grants How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? Our FTEs and number of functions at the site has been growing continuously in the last 2-3 years. Especially the Customer Operations after the centralization of all of these activities in the EMEIA region. In 2017 we increased the employment in the Customer Operations by 50% within 6 months. In the next 2-3 years the growth in employment is expected to be lower but the complexity and the value add functions will grow significantly. Customer Operations is now a strategic department and the second largest department at the site.

Talent and Employment Issues. The site in Debrecen has around 1500 employees. I think the following are universal problems now in this region. • number of talent available • level of competencies (soft skills) vs. knowledge problems • retention is key • I think the company culture (at the site) is the number one differentiator as an employee. Today, I am responsible for all Core Customer Operations functions in the Shared Service Center in Debrecen and smaller functions in Bangalore (India), Yerevan (Armenia), Israel, Russia, Lebanon, Czech, Italy, France, and Germany.

the investment to automatize or the run costs seem too high, the process and/or IT should be involved to address the need at a higher level.

Jean-Pierre Brouste Head of IT Services SG EBS, Bucharest, Romania Parent Company: Societe Generale, France

CEE Business Services Directory

What is your company doing in CEE? SGEBS started in Bucharest in 2014, primarily to propose BPO on finance and HR. We are now 2000 and ITO is 700 FTEs, mainly on development (all platforms) & support activities, with a pretty good business knowledge. Thanks to our Business Analysts, Security operations is also one of our strength. We have a strong relationship with the other captive of the group in India. As a Societe Generale group captive, our aim is to deliver services to SG headquarter and subsidiaries, to help them to reach their commitments at the right cost. Explain why your company set up operations in CEE. Bucharest is definitely a great place to work and to be for SocGen: close to Paris, a member of EU, strong French knowledge and culture, ability to challenge and to transform. We are focused on Bucharest right now but could envisage to open an office in another location if and when it makes sense. How has your business changed in CEE over the last 2-3 years? And what do you foresee in the next 2-3 years? The business changed in a tremendous way as we were less than 500 in 2016. Bucharest

RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. What will you be doing in 2019/2020, and what impact do you expect this to have in the next 2-3 years? As a BPO and ITO entity, we are indeed very interested in RPA. In our huge group, we still have IT applications not linked together or even not fully adapted to the new ways of working. It is part of our mandate and objectives to transform and/or optimize what we’re doing in EBS after the transition phase from Paris to Bucharest. RPA and Smart Automation are definitely part of our strategy. We have a team here dedicated to this. But we take care not to create a “Shadow IT” with a new layer of complexity. If something can to be automated, this should be done quickly, with a limited effort (man-days, costs …). If

Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved (or comment about other efficiencies achieved) by operating in CEE. We do not communicate about figures out of the official communication of the group. I can only say that what you call „cost savings” have 2 aspects : quantity and quality. For quality, SGEBS brought a lot of improvements in all processes and operations which have been transfered to Bucharest. I’m working for SOCIETE GENERALE since 2005. I have been in charge of various entities and large teams including SG desktops environments, production of infrastructures and applications for Retail Banking and Corporate Functions activities. I’m now in charge of IT services, delivering added value for all IT entities of the group.

Talent and Employment Issues. We grew a lot in two years time. Difficulty to recruit and attrition are two attention points. About attrition, we work to decrease attrition rate but also to minimize the impact of attrition. In both, HR and management are fully involved. From a recruitment perspective, our brand needs to be better known on the market and especially in the IT community as we propose projects in all business lines of the bank (retail banking, investment banking, central functions, etc.)

Connections partnership with UiPath yields strong results Active in the digital transformation market in Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia, Connections has signed a partnership with UiPath, Romania’s only unicorn company, to create the Enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform that will help Romanian companies and global customers implement and benefit from RPA technology.

CEE Business Services Directory

The automation of repetitive business processes brings many benefits to organizations, most notably by increasing workflow, operational efficiency, improving customer service, and reducing costs. Since 2017, Connections, the business consultancy services company based in Romania, has been focusing on expanding, consolidating and certifying the company’s team of professionals and RPA capabilities, exclusively on UiPath solutions. “The partnership with the Connections team is a guarantee to their customers that they start on time on the road to digital transformation. Automating repetitive administrative processes, financial, human resources or contact center, will significantly improve productivity, the level of employee satisfaction that will be promoted for strategic activities, and the degree of compliance”, said Daniel Dines, co-founder and CEO of UiPath. Connections has already successfully implemented robot automation processes in various industries ranging from FMCG and banking companies to accounting firms, BPOs, healthcare companies and laboratory tests.

RPA technology

“This year we want to ensure visibility as a trusted UiPath implementation partner in Romania and we estimate a potential of several hundreds of thousands of euros. We focus on the implementation of software robots and excellence centers in various industries, especially in the banking and oil & gas area, where processes are standardized and repetitive. Starting next year, we are targeting the expansion of capabilities to the EMEA and the US,

2019

and we estimate revenues between 2 and 5 million euros. At the service level, the goal is to also launch a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform next year for the SME area,“ said Bogdan Florea, founder and CEO of Connections.

Most companies that want to adopt this technology are in the financial, banking, insurance, telecommunications and retail sectors. Some of the major banks and insurance companies in the local market have already begun implementing RPA technology to automate certain processes.

RPA technology can be deployed in any industry, because software robots automate “Robots can work 24 hours a day, 365 the actions a person would undertake days a year, and achieve an accuracy of while working on a computer. At present, nearly 100 percent, and companies can many large companies in Romania have quickly see the effects of an automation either an ongoing RPA project or are plan- project. For example, following the autoning to implement such a project. There mation of processes, there is a drop of up is an increase in interest in RPA on the to 80 percent in their execution time and market, an indication being the increasing a return on investment in less than a year,” number of positions available in the field. adds Florea.

Talent and Employment Issues. We are a small organization, but a smart one. Every process we have taken over was either “lift and improve” or “lift and shift” with immediate reorganization right afterwards. This allowed us to expand massively in the number of processes we support, while at the same time keeping the number of employees low. Also, we used opportunities in new areas to grow the individuals, both in terms of hierarchy, and skills. We learned that the best place to find great talent is our Summer Internship Program. Certified Chartered Accountant (FCCA). Experienced in leading multi-function shared service departments in multi-country environment, with sound business understanding and education; expertise in project management and process improvement. Specialties: Shared services, Business Services, Organizational development, Talent management, Change management, Cultural transformation, Systems and Processes Optimisation, Finance & Accounting Controllership, SAP.

Kosovo: Southeast Europe’s Promising Outsourcing Hub Southeast Europe, and specifically Kosovo, has rapidly gained recognition as a top location for outsourcing. There are several reasons why, and it is worth looking at Kosovo as a model for growth Outsourcing was originally for saving money and resources. Times have changed, and the reasons to outsource have become numerous. Companies demand more from outsourcing companies; they want quality and value-added services from a trusted partner.

CEE Business Services Directory

At the centre of outsourcing changes is Kosovo. The country has emerged as an outsourcing leader, offering companies professionals with multilingual skills; a young, energetic and highly educated work force; and competitive pricing. Kosovo is becoming the choice for IT services and business processes. Kosovo has already attracted multinationals like AT&T, Vodafone, DHL, Teleperformance and Sutherland. At the forefront of local outsourcing companies is Kosbit, which has gone global as a preferred vendor for AT&T and other managed services. Kosbit has received several awards, including the top 100 Best Outsourcing Providers by IAOP 2018, the Technology Leaders Award 2019, the SSON European Impact Award 2019; and the European IT & Software Excellence Award in 2019. Kosovo has a lot to offer multinational companies, including: • Internet Connectivity – 95% of households in Kosovo have the highest internet penetration, ranking among the highest of EU countries based on Eurostat, 2019; • Education – Kosovo has the youngest, highly-educated population in Europe, with undergraduate and post-graduate degrees. • Communication – Citizens have excellent language skills, including many who can speak English and German.

2019

Kosovo has the largest number of German speakers in this region after Romania. • Culture - Kosovo is culturally aligned with Europe. This helps companies reduce issues by work with citizens with similar cultural backgrounds. • Location – Kosovo is located in Southeastern Europe, only two hours from many European destinations.

• Legislation – The country has reformed its legal system, and the Euro is the official currency. More ITOs and BPOs, are recognising the inherent benefits of Kosovo each year, and appreciating the high-value services. As this happens, Kosovo’s reputation as a preferred outsourcing partner will continue to grow.
