8:30 AM Workshop A: The Benefits of Lift & Shift: Examining the Benefits & Challenges of Upskilling Versus Outsourcing

Before an official HRSSC launch, it goes without saying that an SSO model must be determined. This can be an arduous process, but it has arguably the greatest
impact on all decisions moving forward. Autodesk - a $2 billion company - over the course of 2 years time, implemented 3 SSCs in the US alone. The big question
was whether to keep their organization captive and invest in upskilling their entire shared services employees, or outsourcing the center and dealing with a new
employee universe. While in the end they went with a captive model, it was a close call. In this workshop, the architects of the HRSSO build will walk through that
decision-making process, including:
• The pros and cons they determined for each model
• The career paths they created to make their center attractive to internal talent
• What they put into their RFP and what they were looking for in an outsourcing partner
• Why they decided to keep a captive model and what might have turned the tide towards outsourcing instead
