European region continues to draw investment from the world’s top companies. The growing penetration of high-speed Internet has really opened new possibilities for cities and citizens to tap into the global digital revolution. But the other side of the equation is not at all digital: the rapid expansion of in the CEE region, like Wizzair, has boosted physical mobility and the ability of international investors to set up operations almost anywhere in the region. In this annual business directory CEE Shared Services/Outsourcing Directory (our 9th edition), we have produced – once again - the most-comprehensive listing of companies in the Shared Services sector across the entire region of Central Eastern Europe. From the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, the Shared

Headline Numbers • A conservative estimate suggests that between 1 and 1.5 million people work in the export-oriented business services industry in the European Union. (SSC, BPO, IT, R&D). • Most frequently provided services are: IT, Finance/Controlling, Customer Services, Business Support, HR, Logistics and Supply Chain, Treasury. • Most centers in the Central and Eastern European region have a global reach (about 50% in Poland are from US-based firms) and support 20+ languages. • The attractive business environment has attracted the world’s largest companies to the region to establish SSCs (Morgan Stanley, Credi t Suisse, BP, BT, Exxon, GE, Citi, Google, GM, Unilever, Johnson&Johnson, Accenture, Deutsche Telekom, RBS, Barclays, Volvo, SEB, etc.) • The region has driven the sector’s growth in Europe in the last 10 years offering lower labour costs, availability of multi-lingual and highly motivated young talent, cultural proximity, ease of management and improved infrastructure. • As the sector trends move in the direction of higher value added services, the region is increasingly attractive to investors. Many locations have demonstrated proof of concept (Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest, Prague, Bratislava, Bucharest, Vilnius etc.), so decision-makers are increasingly willing to relocate global business services here.

Services sector continues growing at an approximate 15% annual pace. The region’s largest cities are building new offices in anticipation of even more expansion in this sector. Second-tier and third-tier cities are keenly aware of the appeal of this sector, and its promise to

services stretch the definition, with companies operating in niches such as Actuarial Services, Legal Processes, Engineering and Industrial Design, Graphic Design, Pharmaceutical Research, or Middle-office services for hedge funds.

Digital services are in huge demand, whether it be Mobile AppDev, software programming, marketing analytics, AI, or BigData. Many of the new Investors are exclusively in these Digital services sectors, as either a Captive or an IT/ Digital Services outsourcing provider. And the CEE region’s beautiful and dynamic cities are attracting large numbers of foreign workers, who are excited to relocate to Budapest, Wroclaw, Vilnius, or Timisoara. This cadre of young international talent makes the region more attractive to global firms, who need a wide-range of languages, and adds to the attraction of working inside an SSC. Process Automation and Robots The adoption of more-advanced process automation software is certainly the biggest factor impacting the sector. While some see it as detrimental to jobs, I believe it will be a saving-grace for employees and the sector. Employees will adapt to new demands, and employers will lead the charge to continually-educate their teams. While still a minority of SSCs in CEE are employing Robotic Process

Automation, nearly everyone is keen to learn, explore and test the technology. While RPA may not be the Holy Grail, its promise to automate monotonous and repetitive tasks, and dramatically cut labor costs may be a major factor in boosting productivity at SSCs in CEE – as well as alleviate the intense pressure to hire and retain staff. So keep your eye closely on what appears to be the most important development shaping the Shared Services landscape in the coming years. Methodologies and processes for the Directory Listings In this Directory, we have deliberately avoided the temptation to provide insight into trends in the SSC sector in CEE – there are now ample research reports from advisory firms, associations, recruitment firms, and cities providing excellent, in-depth reports about the sector. This Directory is about the companies – and the top management leading these companies. The core of our effort has been to provide the most-exhaustive listing of companies in the SSC sector in CEE. Our definition of an SSC has evolved over the years and narrowed. While we used to include so-called outsourcing companies, we are now more focused on SSCs, BPO providers, major IT service providers, and R&D centers. We no longer include pure Call Centers or plain-vanilla outsourcing providers. This year, we have more than 1,000 firms listed – and that number may be one of the best guesses of how many “SSCs” operate across the region. (And we’ll continue

2018

to use the SSC abbreviation to include the broader Business Services Sector, Centers of Excellence, Global Business Services,etc.) I’d like to give a big thanks to all of the Cities and Investment Agencies from across the Central Eastern Europe region, who have been wonderfully-helpful with data for our listings, including PAIH, HIPA, CzechInvest, SARIO, Invest Lithuania, LIAA (Latvia), and Inward investment teams from more than 15 cities this year. Also thanks to multiple organizers of SSC conferences across the region, which are invaluable sources of information (ASPIRE, SSON, Flemings, ABSL, Deloitte’s annual SSC conference, the new Ukraine Shared Services

Summit, and our own CEE Shared Services Summit/Awards). I would also like to emphasize our extraordinary distribution of this Directory. We are pleased to have distribution at practically every major event about the CEE shared services sector - more than 12 SSC events in the coming year, including at our 2nd annual USA-Europe Shared Services Summit/Awards 20 June in New York. We are doing our small part to promote the advantages of the sector to both large and mid-market firms across western Europe, USA, and Scandinavia – literally thousands of firms that continue to benefit enormously from the talent in Central Eastern Europe.

We suggest to start small operations at the beginning, learn the job market and then expand nearshoring operations to utilize fully its potential. Instead of setting up your own SSC, we suggest to use BPO provider who can guide you in the nearshoring in Eastern Europe. Strategic Lean methodology can bring great benefits from the beginning and can provide a framework for sustainable process optimizations. Finding and investing in talents who want to grow

Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved. FRISTA offers its customers cost reduction at the level of 25-50% in comparison to costs in Western Europe, depending on the process.

Manager’s Profile

Tomasz Troszczyński Site Manager Groupon Shared Services Warsaw, Groupon, Inc., Chicago, USA Your company’s operations in CEE? Groupon started investments in Poland in 2014, while opening first SSC in Warsaw. In 2017 second location was opened in Katowice with further expansion plans for 2018.

With the beginning of 2018 employment will reach over 850 people for both locations. Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: Main factors were the availability of highly qualified talent pool with good language skills, also very flexible in terms of expanding its areas of competence and the convenient geographical location. Board decision was based on proven track record with the sales teams operating in Poland. How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? We went through streamlining and simplifying our business which resulted in processes and operational efficiency improvements but also investments in technology. At the moment Groupon’s Global Operations is working on delivering operational excellence utilizing enhanced automation technology, while seeking opportunities to further engage the customer. These efforts will result in a fully optimized customer and merchant experience.

RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space.

We will continue to maximize deflection through our technology platforms expanding on existing automation interfaces while implementing predictive algorithms shifting from reactive to proactive engagement methods anticipating our customers needs. In plans we have implementation of a learning lab allowing us to innovate on new technology applications in a controlled test environment before scaling to ensure positive impacts to key performance indicators are obtained. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. • take care of employee satisfaction from day 1! • focus on continuous improvement of processes impacting customer/service experience directly.

Groupon’s reward and recognition programs affect behavior measurably, improve results and deliver both tangible and intangible awards that everyone can earn. It is reflected in high employee satisfaction results, which we regularly measure, allowing managers to collect and analyse feedback in order to react and quickly answer employee needs. Biggest surprises (positive and negative) about operating an SSC centre in CEE. The biggest positive we noticed is variety and availability of highly-skilled workforce on the labour market. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved. The main goal for Groupon operations is to ensure quality and process improvements. We managed to achieve greater transparency across the company allowing best practices to be identified and applied. 7+ years of professional experience; directly involved in setting and expanding Groupon SSC in Warsaw since 2015; COPC certified and Lean Six Sigma trained; focused on driving service excellence while increasing process efficiencies.

Gdańsk/Gdynia Poland

Manager’s Profile

Przemyslaw Siuda Regional Officer Shared Service Centres Europe TÜV Rheinland Polska, Katowice Parent company: TÜV Rheinland AG, Cologne

Your company’s operations in CEE? SSC programme initiated in 2017, the first centre has been set up in Katowice in January 2018, currently 40 employees (F&A and digital marketing) with the plan to broaden the scope (5 other functions to be established in the SSC by the end of 2019). Current outlook for the end of 2019 headcount: 230 FTE. Other SSC to be established world wide, with one GBS organization located in Germany. Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: • SSC programme is a part of a wider global transformation programme with the objective to reduce the overhead cost in the company, optimize the processes and create efficient and effective structures in the company. • Poland selected as a location due to the right mix of maturity of SSC/BPO sector, the availability of talent pool as well as the right cost structure. Some low cost European locations did not qualify as cost has not been a predominant decision factor. • Katowice selected as an emerging SSC/ BPO city, with the view on Krakow as being much more challenging from the recruitment market perspective.

• TUV Rheinland Polska main office is located in Zabrze, so the SSC in Katowice has also the advantage of being in close proximity to the business operations. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. RPO is an important element of the programme, with the pilot projects to be installed within digital marketing (Lead Management) and F&A (P2P). Activities handled internally by a project team within the global transformation project. Full roll out in 2019. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE.

Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. Skills: as always, it is a combination of specific skills and a specific language that poses a challenge. German language seems to be in high demand in Poland recently. Prolonged transitions (where staff members are asked to travel abroad for the periods of time above 6 weeks) are unfavourable from the candidates’ point of view. Work-life balance has become a huge topic and a ‘flexibility’ of staff which used to be a very strong selling point in Poland a few years ago has been much limited in the past two years. Biggest surprises about operating an SSC centre in CEE. No surprises. I have been in this business for 14 years in CEE now… Przemyslaw Siuda has been a manager in SSC/ BPO sector in CEE since 2004. His career story includes setting up a number of multi-functional, multi-lingual service centres in Poland, Romania and Lithuania. Przemek has participated in transformation and transition projects covering almost all continents and managed operations as big as 1200 people delivering 24/7/365 business services.

CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Directory

• Emerging locations should be preferred over the mature ones. Take the advantage of being an early entrant. • Market the location internally in your company even before the centre is formally set up. • Prepare very thoroughly an offer/package for the affected employees in the incumbent location to ensure the retention of knowledge throughout the transition. No improvisation, full detailed preparation upfront needed.

issues, support on daily basis the system users.

Michał Wierzbowski

Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. Continuous automation of processes is enabling to achieve a two-digit percentage productivity. Low task activities are being progressively eliminated, therefore requirements towards employees are more and more focused on added-value assignments.

SSC Director, Orange Polska, Lublin, Poland Parent Company: ORANGE, Paris, France

CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Directory

Your company’s operations in CEE? ORANGE is a leading telecommunication provider with 41 billion € revenue in 2017 and over 250 million clients worldwide, employing over 150,000 employees. SSC in Lublin is supporting Orange Polska Group companies with F&A and investment settlements processes, employing 300 FTE. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. Process automation has been an on-going strategy for the last 10 years of the SSC. It is the main source of productivity, enabling to eliminate the low task activities. RPA is an additional option to enhance the automation. First robots were applied in the SSC at the beginning of 2017, the new ones are engaged consequently. Orange Polska went through implementation of new ERP, Oracle Fusion in finance, which is now opening the new opportunities to use RPA. There is a reflection which needs to be kept in mind, RPA is not forcefully the only and best solution for all issues, it is one of the options, which is automatizing the process but not improving it. Therefore the strategy of SSC is to automatize processes,

using whole range of means, but improving the process firstly. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. First of all, there is a need to answer the question why SSC? Is it only to decrease the costs, to standardize and automatize the processes, or to achieve the visibility of the business, subsidiaries, or any other. Secondly is to have full support for the project at the very top of the company. Project without this support is a lengthy and difficult task with partial if any success at the end. Thirdly, create internal team of process engineers, having deep knowledge of IT systems and understanding the processes delivered by SSC. This team should be delivering automation solutions for the SSC, overcome IT technical

Biggest surprises about operating an SSC centre in CEE. Positives: Quality of skills of people I work and worked with. Negatives/Improvements needed: Lack of understanding of some Managers within the company what is the potential of the SSC in supporting the business and creating added value for the company. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved. Biggest savings - close to 50% from the starting point - came from transferring to one location all F&A activities. Further 50%-plus was achieved by introducing different automation solutions and processes. Michał has experience in setting up new business projects within trading and sales for international companies. For the last 15+ years he’s active in the SSC/BPO business, managing outsourced project within Accenture, then running SSC for Technicolor and Orange.

Manager’s Profile

Andrea Marciandi EMEA Shared Services Director, Whirlpool EMEA SSC - Whirlpool Company Polska, Łódź Parent Company: Whirlpool EMEA Spa, Italy

Your company’s operations in CEE? Our SSC is the centralized partnering organization at the heart of Finance, where all finance-related operations for EMEA converge – starting from supply chain and vendor activities, through sales and customer relations, up to financial accounting and statutory reporting. Certain activities have been shifted from the local organizations and the process ownership has been transferred to a dedicated organization – the SSC. Ths SSC employs today around 300 FTE and supports 21 countries and over 39 legal entities.The Lodz SSC comprises today of the following functions: 1. Record To Report : General Accounting, Intercompany, Asset Accounting, Banking, Journal Entry, Statutory Reporting and Compliance. 2. Bill To Cash : Bank and Cash Collections, Customer Master Data Management and AR Analysis. 3. Procure To Pay : Vendor Master Maintenance, Invoice Scanning and Archival, Invoice Processing, Employee Expense Processing, Disbursement and Query Management. Explain why your company set up operations in Lodz, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: In July 2017 all activities were centralized in the new SSC in Lodz, consolidating what was previously performed in Ireland, Italy and India. Poland has been selected for the following reasons: growing economy, one of the highest GDP growth in Europe - one of the main markets for household appliances and one of the most attractive countries for manufacturing facilities - well developed infrastructure and most dynamic SSC sector in Europe - availability of talents and experienced professionals - proximity to other European markets In particular we have selected Lodz district for the following reasons: - availability of new real estate opportunities where we could build a winning workplace office - leverage the SSC

already existing with more than 80 professionals. 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 last few years our organization has gone through a journey of integration resulting from the major acquisition. It has been a successful journey and in the next couple of years business will get benefited by this. RPA/Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. We are planning to start our first proof of concept for Robotic automation within SSC in the second half of 2018. We are currently evaluating which processes will better benefit from RPA and we will evaluate further investments based on results of POC. We expect benefits in terms of process efficiency and quality improvements. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up SSC/BPO operations in CEE: Our advice is to create a shared services model considering following aspects. Most organi-

sations start their feasibility study without a clear vision of what they can achieve. A. You should use the feasibility phase to develop your vision, define how processes should be split between local businesses and the SSC/ BPO, define technology to be used, assess potential locations and agree on the most appropriate solution. B. By the end of this phase your, business case should set out financial and nonfinancial benefits. Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. We have recruited over 200 people in 2017 for the new centre, reaching almost 300 employees, considering the consolidation of the existing center already active in Lodz since 2004. Activities went from on-boarding of all new employees to the the establishment of policies and procedures to support the staff. Biggest surprises (positive and negative) about operating an SSC centre in CEE: Positives: There is good availability of human resources in CEE to support Whirlpool business not only with the technical know how, but also with the requisite language skills. Negatives/Improvements needed: This also poses a threat to retain the talent within the organization. Most of the workforce consist of millenials and managing their career aspirations could be a challenge. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved. Cost savings come from a combination of many different factors, first of all from process standardization and continuous improvement. Secondly, Poland represents a competitive market in term of personnel costs, where the combination of labour costs and available competencies and skills can be considered optimal. Finally, investment in new technologies and system can also bring significant cost benefits and increase quality of services provided. Bio: Andrea started his career in KPMG Italy, where he has experienced both audit and consulting engagements. After a period in Giovanni Crespi Spa as Corporate Finance Manager and Treasurer, he joined Whirlpool EMEA in 2008,where he covered roles of increasing responsibility within Internal Audit department. Since 2017 he is responsible for EMEA Shared Services and he has been leading the centralization and consolidation project, which led to the opening of the current SSC in Lodz.

Manager’s Profile

Anna Berczynska

skillset in the SSC/BPO industry along with

Director ROCKWOOL Global Business Services, Poznan Parent Company: ROCKWOOL International, Denmark

Your company’s operations in CEE? ROCKWOOL Global Business Services is a multi-functional captive centre established in September 2016 in Poznan currently with 200 employees providing complexity of services such as F&A, Master Data, Controlling, Internal Audit, Compliance, Taxes, IT, HR and Operations & Technology supportive functions (CAD designing, machinery compliance). Poznan’s centre is the first and the only competence centre in ROCKWOOL Group (RW). Our staff takes part in group strategic projects such as digitalization of ROCKWOOL processes and standardization & harmonization of finance function. The synergy of IT & Finance competences in our centre allows RW group to leverage our services word-wide starting from RW’s customer experience platform, acceleration of financial reporting and better internal processes & tools for all departments.

development of RPA & cognitive solutions in the upcoming 2-4 years. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. We have just started the RPA journey in our centre with the least complex processes on purpose to eliminate human touch from unstructured data handling, workflows, data sourcing and reporting. In the next steps we would like to consider implementing machine learning and cognitive solutions.

Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. Since September 2016 we have kept our recruiting engine on full speed growing to the current level of 200 employees with relatively senior and complex competence set. We’ve been successful in attracting talents and retaining talents so far by creating a vibrant work atmosphere, activity based office with chill-out zones, audio-studio, silent rooms and ergonomic work desks. Definitely the growing demand for talents has a significant impact on a talent availability and there is still a lot to do in terms of breaking the glass ceiling in the SSC/BPO market for expatriates, people with disabilities and even millennial graduates who might not perceive centres as a life balance type of a workplace. The higher-education system should increase their emphasis on preparing students for future jobs with communication, problem-solving, analytical thinking and quality of foreign languages. It seems that universities are more and more open to business partnering and they’ve been trying to catch up with study programmes, but there should be more investment in digital solutions to prepare the next generation of graduates for the new era of the BPO/SSC sector within the next five years. Biggest surprises about operating an SSC centre in CEE. Positives: maturity of the SSC market translated into very good talent pool and very good and supportive investment environment. Negatives/Improvements needed: bureaucracy, lack of flexible work schedules regulations, lengthy work permits formalities and salary inflation in the industry.

How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? The centre was established 18 months ago so there has been no change since then. We definitely foresee significant change of the

3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. Firms considering SSC/BPO operations in CEE should take into account the maturity of the labour market and apply more complex multi-functional set-up since the beginning in purpose to support retention and provide advancement opportunities for their staff. Another important aspect of a new entrant into CEE is quite high level of bureaucracy connected with a set-up of a new legal entity. The BPO/SSC sector in Poland requires “refurbishment” as far as the labour law is concerned. This would allow more flexible working schemes, would create the appropriate facilities for investors within relatively bureaucratic legal environment, would promote the sector at universities and would support job opportunities for expatriates to fill in the talent pool gaps in the face of growing demand.

Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: ROCKWOOL’s decision to set up the centre in Poznań was based on several key aspects, such as the labour market, the availability of skilled employees, the cultural fit with the company, the general business environment and the future ambitions of the city. The city was a good choice for this new investor, entering an already mature business services market.

Manager’s Profile

Sudheer Kaavil Valappil Site Director, BD Shared Services Center Wroclaw, Becton, Dickinson and Company (New Jersey, USA)

Your company’s operations in CEE? We started our European Shared Services center in Wroclaw in 2012, primarily supporting EMEA operations. Over time the center has grown to be a truly multifunctional GBS site covering select global and COE services. Operations are built around the four focus areas of Finance, Customer, Supplier and Associate Services. Supported teams include, Business Planning and Analysis, HR lifecycle, Customer Service, Supply Chain, E Commerce, Supplier Compliance, Master Data and other teams. The growth across the initial years was modest but very impactful. With a US$12 billion acquisition of Carefusion in 2015 and US$ 24 billion acquisition of CR Bard in 2017, there was a significant momentum in the growth of the center to ~500 employees currently. We moved to a brand new technology enabled office building in Wroclaw, where we have built a health focused and engaging work environment. Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: Key reasons behind the choice of location were: a) Access to highly educated and engaged workforce based on early-mover success stories, b) Regular inflow of fresh graduates from Wroclaw universities with good English and other European language skills, c) Very professional and supportive local government with mature services industry, d) A vibrant city with cultural depth that supports good work life balance, e) Attractive for international/national relocation including highly

CEE region and more importantly Poland has gone through a Business Services boom over the past few years and is getting closer to a high level of maturity. Most of the centers that invested in the initial years have been expanding, and many third tier cities that attracted little interest in the past have a handful of corner stone projects to showcase. Process Automation? Industry has come a long way with broader industry associations and maturity of discussion in the fields of Robotics, Business Intelligence, machine learning and other fast evolving trends. There is a good appetite within the industry to actively adopt service

3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. 1. Build a long term value proposition and not just a short term labor arbitrage-based model; test the validity of the model by engaging with some players already in the target market. 2. Invest time and energy in building leadership layers smartly, this is a people business and the onsite leadership who translate the global vision to the entry level employees can make or break the model. 3. Engage with the workforce, local government and universities early to ensure your approach to resourcing/policies are most optimal – iterate the model over the initial quarters to localize your practices without negotiating on corporate values/culture. 18+ years in the business services industries; Worked across the domains of F&A, HR, Sales, Supply Chain, BPO and SSC strategy; Passionate about driving innovation throug h design thinking and applying best in class technology solutions.

enabling technologies. Given that most of the transactional and lower end tactical operations have been successful, I am seeing more advanced roles being staffed in the centers as talented employees start making inroads into the value pyramid. Given that most companies have done their initial use case pilots, we will see more aggressive adoption of robotics and artificial intelligence based on digital labor solutions in the region. Given the rapid growth of technology and service oriented startups in the region, it is only natural that big business SSC’s will start working with local solution providers to innovate customized solutions. I can also see a few business trends scaling to global adoption after being prototyped in the region.

Manager’s Profile

Dominik Kaminski Global PTP Manager, Avon Global Shared Services, Warsaw Parent Company: Avon Products Inc., London UK

Your company’s operations in CEE? Our Global Shared Service Centre is based in Warsaw. Currently we co-operate with our BPO partner who performs the financial/ accounting operations for Avon worldwide. However we still have MDM process and Customer Relations Centre in-house. We are now in the process of setting up a GBS. Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: It’s hard to say for me as I joined the company in 2008 so 3 years after the decision was made by our HQ to establish the SSC in Warsaw, Poland. How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? Until 2015 all finance/accounting operations were performed in our SSC. Then the company made the decision to transition some activities to our BPO Partner in India. Now we are in the process of establishing a GBS which will also cover other processes like: HR, IT and Marketing. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space.

I’m not involved in these activities so can’t give you any comment. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. My advice is to transition more complex tasks/activities/operations and the ones which have language dependency to Poland and to move simple operations to a BPO in locations like India or Philippines with an agreement that they will provide process automation and efficiency within certain period of time. Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. Now we have around 60 employees on board. Before, when the operations were in our centre, there were 120+ associates. Now we have and require different employee’s profiles and skills: with an experience in PTP or RTR areas, with analytical, VBA skills,

I joined Avon Shared Service Centre in 2008 as the Accounting Specialist for Fixed Assets in RTR team. After 2 years I was promoted to the position of Payments Supervisor and managed the team of 4 associates. Then I took over our T&E back office team and managed 10 employees in total. In 2015 when we transitioned the operations to our BPO partner, I became the Global PTP Controller and since February 2017 I’m the Global PTP Manager reporting to GSS Director.

Biggest surprises about operating an SSC centre in CEE. Positives: Very good talent pool on Warsaw’s market, people well-educated with multi-language skills. SSC in Warsaw/Poland can be reached from HQs from Western Europe within 2-3 hours flight. Negatives/Improvements needed: Big competition on Warsaw’s job market due to many SSCs. It’s difficult to hire a good specialist for reasonable salary and the recruitment lead time is sometimes 2-3 months while you can lose your associate who works relatively shortly within 2 weeks/1 month.

CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Directory

with willingness to travel, with experience in working with people from different cultures (we co-operate with the colleagues from India on a daily basis). In my opinion, it’s difficult to find such person on Warsaw’s job market mainly due to big competition and increased demands of young people who want to earn a lot but have small experience or are just after studies. It makes your recruitment process difficult and time-consuming.

Manager’s Profile

In the next 2-3 years, we foresee further growth of our global network of offices and the expansion of the share of projects that deal with new technologies. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. IBA Group provides Smart RPA services based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for customers worldwide. In 2018-2019, we are planning to expand the RPA services and to launch our own RPA solutions. We expect that our services and solutions release up to 30-40 percent of back office employees from repetitive operations, enabling them to focus on complicated and creative tasks. In terms of revenue, we intend to expand this line of business at least twofold.

CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Directory

Chairman of the Board of Directors IBA Group Offices in 12 countries. In CEE: Czech Republic, Belarus, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Russia, and Ukraine. Parent company: IBA Group, Prague, Czech Republic

Your company’s operations in CEE? IBA Group is one of the largest IT service providers in Eastern Europe. ITO is our major specialization on the global market. We focus on mainframe systems, enterprise applications, SAP solutions, CAMSS (cloud, analytics, enterprise mobility, social media, and security) technologies, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA). IBA Group serves customers in more than 40 countries. The clients are global giants like IBM, Goodyear, Fujitsu Technology Solutions, and Rockwell Automation, as well as many other large-scale and medium-sized businesses. The largest IBA Group’s development centers are based in Belarus, namely Minsk and Gomel. In the Czech Republic, IBA Group has development centers in Brno, Prague, and Ostrava. We have also minor development centers in Bratislava, Slovakia, and Burgas, Bulgaria. Give us some background on your company. As our management and most of our employees originate from and live in Eastern Europe, the major part of our business is located in the CEE region. IBA Group was founded in 1993 in Minsk, Belarus. The country’s reputation for scientific and IT excellence, and its competitive labor market attracted numerous IT vendors. IBM was one of those vendors that came to Minsk more than 25 years ago and became a co-founder of the International Business Alliance (IBA). In 1998, IBM

withdrew its share and IBA began growing independently. In 2005, the company relocated its headquarters to Prague, Czech Republic. The reason for the move was to become a real near-shore IT service provider for European customers. How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? The IT industry is evolving at a very rapid pace. The last years brought a completely new buyer to the limelight. The buyers are mobile, software-savvy, and innovation-oriented. New trends are coming to life, including artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, atomically precise manufacturing, and the Internet of Everything (IoE). IBA Group proceeded with diversification of its service portfolio and adoption of new technologies, including CAMSS, Internet of Things (IoT), and RPA. In the last three years, we opened offices in Bratislava and Ostrava, and expanded the office in Prague. In 2016, IBA Group opened its own campus in Belarus’ High Tech Park with modern office facilities, a data center, and a fitness center. This year, we set up an office in Bulgaria.

3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. Eastern Europe has good infrastructure and excellent connections with major European cities. Its labor market is competitive and countries in Eastern Europe have an inflow of young talent. However, human resources are limited and in terms of IT, it would be easier to make a partnership with a local IT company than to set up a new legal entity. Biggest surprises (positive and negative) about operating in CEE. Educated workforce, attractive cities, and government regulations that support the development of the IT industry are among the positive surprises. Improvement is needed to achieve deeper penetration of Western European languages in CEE.

Sergei Levteev has been IBA CEO since the company’s inception in 1993. In 2005, he was elected Chairman of the Board of IBA Group. Mr. Levteev spearheads all aspects of the company’s business efforts, including overall vision and strategy. During his tenure, a small firm evolved into an international group of 2,500+ employees.

Local top directors: Lukas Schärer, CEO; Lea Bodnarova, HR Manager;Laszlo Mocsy, Head of Operations; Tomas Dubecky, Finance & Performance Manager

Date SSC started activities: January 2014 Company’s global activities: LafargeHolcim is the leading global building materials and solutions company serving masons, builders, architects and engineers all over the world. As urbanisation increasingly impacts people and the planet, the Group provides innovative products and building solutions with a clear commitment to social and environmental sustainability. With leading positions in all regions, LafargeHolcim employs around 90,000 employees in more than 80 countries and has a portfolio that is equally balanced between developing and mature markets. Company’s locally-based activities and services: Holcim Business Services (our European Business Services) is part of LafargeHolcim group, world leader in building materials industry. EBS offices located in the heart of Košice have a highly modern architecture with exposed concrete and specific elements, referring to LafargeHolcim operations and products. Here, a staff of professionals is providing support to partner group companies in Europe from financial transactions, such as accounting, invoicing and master data maintenance to HR administration. These are concentrated in five main streams: Record to Report (R2R), Order to Cash (O2C), Purchase to Pay (P2P), Hire to Retire (H2R), Master Data (MD). Our BSC was established in 2014 and is current-

ly providing support to customers in 20 countries. Total number of employees: 400 at Dec 2017. Major Achievements of the SSC: The SSC with very fast growth from a small center for a few entities in Slovakia and Hungary to the center of 400 employees for more than 20 countries across the Europe onboarded is providing business services to LafargeHolcim companies. We were able to take over the processes along the countries with their different country specific requirements, standardize it, take ownership of them and bring the 11% efficiency every year by continuous improvement initiatives. Also the center sustains with the number of employees for 2 years with rapidly increasing the scope of countries and scope of services. December 2015 - 360 FTEs - 10 countries onboarded December 2017 - 370 FTEs - 21 countries onboarded Employee, environmental, or CSR initiatives of the SSC: Our employees are active in proposing Green office approach driven by Eco-ambassadors volunteer group. They drive recycling and waste separation in the office, organise volunteering activities such as trees planting for Cancer centre where company leadership team is also involved. They took initiative

in increasing the awareness of energy consumption and proposed a campaign to reduce it. EBS supports them with communication tools, budget and employees recognised the effort by nominating the Eco leaders in Best example Employee Award. Eco part is integrated in All-hands-on meetings and in presentations on Christmas parties as a part of our culture. Additional insights on Shared Services center: In 2017 we had our first round of Lean Six Sigma projects, through which we provided development opportunity for our employees through the departments and created an added value and cost saving through projects applied all over whole Europe. We are also heading in the direction of automation for the operational processes by developing robotics model and we are currently working on creating a separate Robotics department to continue development in this area in upcoming year 2018. We actively support development of our employees through our internal academy, where also employees without experience can develop themselves in various soft & hard skills areas. Our employees are also actively participating on international projects, such as support to creation of a Shared Service Center LafargeHolcim for middle east & Africa; supporting our corporate headquarters in Switzerland or leading different projects connected with the country onboarding or optimization.

Biggest surprises (positive and negative) about operating an SSC centre in CEE. Positives: Good local career opportunities using language and intercultural skills. Negatives/Improvements needed: Too many changes, uncertainties: operations are coming then going to India/Singapur, etc., sometimes it is difficult to be resilient. Lack of real partnership from core business, beyond cost saving and standardization lack of interest in offering the same opportunities. 2016 – Head of HR/Payroll Services at Harman International: set up the new SSC in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, CEE SSC Awards Winner: New Entrant of the Year, 2018. 2014: Managing Director Mol HR Services: reorganization, implementing HR Partner Support, International Mobility, English language services in the portfolio. 2012: Tetra Pak, Reward Manager in EMEA: implementation of Reward processes, salary tool, job evaluation, marker research, etc. 2006: Convergys (NGA): various functions for Whirlpool Operations

My department has 25 employees, from 0 to 25 we reached since 2016 September. I think we can grow further in the coming years, might be doubling. Employee skills: more used to multitasking, tech savies, but less analytical or diving deep. Worklife integration becomes more and more important, but leadership will go back to the consultant model from delegation/coaching focused, as results will be more important in performance management than time factors. Benefit landscape: companies need to provide tailor-made packages based on the lifestyle of the employees. Health insurance and pension plans will become more used. Finding and keeping good employees: employer branding is essential, internal trainings become more important.

Emese Szakacs Director, AGCO Shared Services, Budapest Parent Company: AGCO Corporation, Duluth, Georgia, USA

Your company’s opeations in CEE? AGCO’s multi-function Shared Service center is a captive SSC providing services for AGCO businesses wordwide in the areas of IT (enterprise technical and application services, project management, global infrastructure services, service desk), HR (employee lifecycle management) and for businesses in the EMEA region in Indirect Purchasing and Finance (P2P, R2R, FP&A). Opened in 2011 with the plan to be a 50 head SAP development center, the operations has grown by 2018 to 260 employees and 5 functional areas to support. Further expansion is expected in 2018-2019 by diversifying the service portfolio in the existing service delivery areas and including new functions into the Center. Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: • Availability of skilled workforce with appropriate experience level and language capabilities. • EU membership, proximity to the main manufacturing operations in Western Europe. • Appropriate infrastructure, low corporate income tax. • Enable lower cost service delivery. • Centralized activities enable standardization and harmonization of business processes across brands and locations as well as regions. How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? Over the last 2-3 years we achieved operational excellence with the processes centralized in the SSC: we integrated silo activities, standardized processes across brands and locations, improved productivity and customer experiences. Introducing continuous improvement programs, we continuously increase

efficiency and drove cost savings not only with the processes located in the SSC, but with end-to-end processes. More and more complex and strategic positions are moved to our SSC and new business areas are also looking at opportunities the SSC model can deliver to them. We expect further growth of the SSC by including new functions and expanding the existing portfolio with more cross-functional, cross-brand value added activities as well as services with strategic impact. Focus areas for the next 2-3 years alongside with the transition projects is introduction of new innovative service delivery solutions, new, flexible service models, accelerated implementation of RPA and using and developing cutting edge technology to support digitalization. RPA and Process Automation – please tell us what your company is doing in this space. AGCO started the RPA journey.2017 implementing the first successful pilot robots in Finance and HR. In the meantime we’ve built an inventory of 120 RPA opportunities to be implemented in the next 12-18 month, and established an RPA center of Excellence in the Budapest SSC. We expect a significant increase of active robots in all service delivery areas in the SSC as well as in business processes not centralized in the SSC. 3 specific bits of advice to other firms considering setting up in CEE. • There is never enough change management – do not underestimate the change management impact. It requires a different mindset to work with the SSC. • Thoroughly plan knowledge transfer using all possible methods to capture knowledge especially when processes are not documented. • Define the baseline with the business stakeholders and manage expectations in terms of results. • Optimize using continuous improvement programs and continue with change management. • Embrace new technologies and lead initiatives like RPA etc. Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years.

2018

Currently we have 260 employees, expected to increase to 300 by the end of 2018. The labor market is very competitive in Hungary, there are skilled and experienced candidates on the market in all service areas, but attracting and retaining them requires focus, speed and good employer branding. More and more candidates with international experience are also available on the market. The benefits landscape is changing, there is a gradual increase in the salaries, but this is not the main factor. Millennials require different benefits, community feeling, values, company culture, flexible work schedules can be a differentiator. Job content, purpose and career opportunities are key for retention. Biggest surprises (positive and negative) about operating an SSC centre in CEE. Positives: incredible level of energy, “can do and will do” attitude, ease of driving change. Negatives/Improvements needed: high stress level in the teams due to pressure from stakeholders outside of the SSC which needs to be managed at all levels. Specific cost savings that your firm has achieved. On average 25% SG&A cost reduction in the areas transitioned to the SSC – this benefit is realized even with investment in new tools and cost of setting-up a modern SSC environment. I am the GM of AGCO Shared Services since June 2013. I joined AGCO in 2011 as Finance Reengineering Manager, EAME/APAC. I’ve been leading finance transformation initiatives, continuous improvement and organizational effectiveness projects in order to optimize Financial Shared Services and improve the Finance Business Support of the AGCO Businesses. Prior to AGCO I held various positions managing Shared Service and CoE set-up, SAP FICO implementations, end-to-end process standardization and improvement projects at AXA in France and Switzerland and various SSC operational roles at General Electric and Genpact in Hungary. I earned a Master in Corporate Finance and Offshoring – Outsourcing diploma from CEU Business School in Budapest and a Diploma in Strategic Marketing from the University of Modern Business Studies in Budapest. I am certified in Project management.

CS VISION

Unique nature of the services provided: The Actuarial Support Center (ASC) within Allianz Technology Romania is the largest actuarial hub in the country, with a team of almost 60 professionals. It started its activity in 2013, at the same time with the Romanian Branch. It initially provided an extended workbench type of support, moving towards offering project-based support. In the past 4 years, ASC has been expanding its collaborations across the Allianz Group, allowing the other entities to free up their actuaries and to focus on more strategic and top-level business developments. According to the Actuarial Association of Europe, actuaries may start their training after they graduate by joining an actuarial firm, an insurance company or a pension fund as a trainee. Being in an actuarial job will develop certain skills which will help passing the exams. The actuarial profession requires quite a complicated and lengthy accreditation process, which usually starts after graduating a Mathematics, Statistics or Economics degree..

Manager’s Profile

is one of the hardest currencies in outsourcing business.

Dr. Lyubomyr Zubrytskyy Service Manager, Head of HR Service Tower in Krakow and Head of Customer Service Center in Lviv Parent Company: Lufthansa Global Business Services and Austrian Airlines

Your company’s operations in CEE? The center in Krakow was established back in 2003, together with two other centers in Mexico and Asia. The scope of services provided in Krakow is as follows: Finance (P2P, O2C, R2R, Revenue Accounting), HR Services, Procurement, as well as a wide pool of functions which require broader expertise in the resp. area (e.g. IT, Project/ Migration Management, Process Management, Controlling etc. (approx. 1.000 employees). The center in Lviv was established in 2008 and is also a part of the center network, offering services in the area of General Reservation & Support, Group Handling, Agency Support and many others (approx. 150 employees).

vices. It is seldom enough that the services are provided in the local language. English, German and other languages are often an important factor. New centers usually need appropriate open space facilities, a convenient transport, and IT infrastructure. Last but not least are the costs. Near-shore centers are usually established at the locations which provide competitive advantages in terms of personnel and infrastructure costs. Both locations Krakow and Lviv fulfil these criteria.

Explain why your company set up operations here, and any specific factors that influenced the company’s decision: My observation was that in few words it is always about people, infrastructure and costs, which robably does not come as a surprise. Availability of a pool of people as potential employees is the first requirement. An indication about its availability can be taken based on the number of universities with the responsible specializations and number of other centers offering similar ser-

How will your operations develop in the next 2-3 years? My overall observation for the centers is permanent growth over the last few years. Only a growing organization can ensure interesting development opportunities for its talents and important knowledge-holders. At the same time the growth is only possible at locations which ensure the proper pool of resources, and which have deserved growth by delivering proper performance, continuity and creating trust from business partners.

SSC PwC

Employee Issues – and what are the employment challenges in the coming years. People are the key factor for the success of organizations where human work stays in the middle of the process. Some basic and special skills should be available in the market (e.g. accounting, MS office, language), at the same time it is also an employer’s tasks to develop its people. It’s all about a good mix between people who are growing with the company and those who bring the external view and challenge/complete the existing company skillset.

CEE Shared Services and Outsourcing Directory

What is your most fascinating experience? People who started on the first day when the center was established, and who made development across different positions and levels climbing to the high management level and being a living proof of concept for fascination “outsourcing”. Another great experience are business partners which developed trust in the BPO/Customer Service and treat the organization as a great opportunity to improve their processes and cost structure, and are willing to give more scope into the near-shore organization.
