Unlocking value and gaining influence with your GBS / shared services / GICs

Agility, fluidity, responsibility

Shared services centers / Global Global Business Services (GBS) continue to evolve in myriad ways — stepping-up to play a leading role in the global transformation and sourcing models of their respective organizations.

To this vital and expanding cause, we bring three decades of insight and analysis. With memberships, set-up support consulting, and location portfolio optimization, GBS / shared services clients are guided in delivering on their mandates and then raising the bar.

Outsourcing service providers dominate the marketing messages – but, in aggregate, internal service delivery is over one-quarter of the nearshore and offshore market

How we serve GBSs

Recognized as a leading authority on Global Business Services, Everest Group serves GBSs/GICs and their parent organizations across the entire lifecycle through a combination of research and advisory capabilities. Our GBS research focuses on the critical aspects of this model, such as growth and evolution, talent development, and parent organization engagement models. As a result, industry influencers and clients deem our research in this area as cutting-edge, contemporary thought leadership.
