In our 2022 HR Shared Services Trends Report, we share the findings from our latest pulse survey into how the HR shared services landscape is evolving in the post pandemic world. The research builds on the original question set from our 2020 ‘The Future of HR Shared Services’ white paper but importantly tests some new hypotheses, with a deeper dive into areas such as: service scope, continuous improvement, experience and, in particular, talent. Our 2022 trends survey was sent only to HR shared services directors from global companies, thereby keeping the respondent profile to a senior, strategic level.
The strapline of our 2020 report was ‘becoming people experience and solutions experts’. This year’s survey shows that HR shared service leaders are embracing the challenge and doing exactly that.
Read this whitepaper to understand the overall thoughts from HR shared services leaders across 44 global businesses, on topics such as:
- The new services that are being brought into the scope of HR shared services in the next 12 months and use of outsourcing partners
- Critical focus areas for experience, across both employee and line manager populations
- How organisations are measuring success and the mechanisms in place for continuous improvement
- The critical skills and behaviours for the next 12 months, along with how we are sourcing and developing HR shared services talent
- The technologies HR shared services leaders are investing in
- The key enablers for success over the next 12 – 24 months
Whilst this report is predominantly fact based, we also share some provocations and reflection questions. In 2022, HR shared services organisations are continuing to push into more specialist, business advisory areas and explore new avenues for sourcing and developing talent. But are we being bold enough?
