As technology adoption increases exponentially, organizations are challenged by the proliferation of data that the technology generates. Increasingly, Shared Services / Global In-house Centers (GICs) are leading their organizations’ efforts to tame data and derive key insights from it.

Based on our recent Pinnacle Model research on data & analytics maturity in SSCs/GICs, this webinar will show executives how they can build capabilities in their SSCs/GICs to turn this challenge into a strategic asset, generating value and enhancing service delivery.

In this fast-paced session, we’ll answer the following:

  • What roles do best-in-class GICs play in global data & analytics programs?
  • How do best-in-class GICs attract and retain talent with relevant skills for data & analytics? What supporting programs have they developed to support these efforts?
  • How are best-in-class GICs funding these initiatives?
  • How are best-in-class GICs addressing associated technology challenges that impact their data & analytics teams?
  • What actual cost savings and operational and strategic impacts are GICs creating for their parent organizations through data & analytics leverage?

Who should attend, and why?
The webinar content is geared toward global stakeholders responsible for Shared Services / Global In-house Centers (GICs) and Global Business Services (GBS), as well as their Heads of Human Resources and Senior Strategy Executives.

Attendees will walk away with five key differentiating capabilities that characterize Pinnacle, or best-in-class, GICs.

Preview of the findings and insights we’ll be discussing:

  • How does your approach to Shared Services (or Global In-house Center) talent create cost, operational, and strategic impact?
  • How do best-in-class GICs acquire talent with niche skills?
  • What supporting programs must you have to develop and retain top talent?
  • How are GICs enhancing their employee value propositions?
  • The bottom line: what is the actual impact of various talent initiatives?

As the accelerating pace of technology disruption impacts every area of the business it’s vital for in-house delivery centers to get their talent strategies right. Some delivery centers are ahead of the curve, adapting with these changes and even assisting their parent organizations to adjust to the changing talent model. This webinar will help senior enterprise executives to understand how different elements of their talent strategy can enhance their delivery centers’ future readiness.

Who should attend, and why?

Offering results from our recent Pinnacle Model™ research on Shared Services (or Global In-house Center) talent, this webinar will equip senior enterprise executives with information they need to leverage their talent strategies to enhance their delivery centers’ future readiness. For example, our research shows that a concentrated focus on delivering strategic impact has enabled Pinnacle Model™ GICs to deliver 1.5X higher satisfaction from their talent programs. And Pinnacle Model GICs are twice as likely to have managed their HR costs at less than 5% than other GICs.

The content is geared to senior enterprise executives: Head of the Global In-house Center (GIC) / Shared Services Center (SSC) / Global Business Service (GBS), Head of Human Resources in GICs/SSCs/GBS, Senior Strategy Executives, Global Sourcing Managers, and parent organization stakeholders focused on GICs / shared services.

Building the Digital Bank of the Future: The Emerging Role of Quality Assurance | Webinar

Banking will remain relevant in the coming years, but banks as we know them may not. This is due to a new consumption paradigm, compelling banks to pivot from banking-as-a-product to banking-as-a-lifestyle.

As banks evolve beyond selling products to selling experiences, they must assure these experiences under their brand. Enterprise QA must therefore transform itself from a monolithic function to one that can orchestrate a heterogeneous ecosystem of processes, assets and talent beyond the bank.

Join this webinar discussion on how the digital imperatives for banks are transforming enterprise QA.
