The Shared Services & Outsourcing China Week is a dedicated platform for community discussions on solidifying China’s competitive advantage within the global Shared Services map. Have a look at who's attending this year!
去年是人类历史上的一个分水岭。2020年1月，面对前所未有的全球新威胁，中国处于 即将爆发的大流行的最前沿，承受着团结一心、共同抗疫的巨大压力。鉴于迪士尼、耐 克、麦当劳和现代等许多跨国企业已开始对中国高效的工厂生产和日益富裕的消费者产 生依赖，中国市场的关闭无疑给这些企业带来了革命性的变化。
受新冠肺炎疫情的影响，许多企业不得不做出限制入华旅游或暂时关闭店铺、办公室、 餐厅和主题公园等举措。此外，对中国制造商的供应中断也波及到全球供应链，使得许 多全球和中国企业难以获得对其运营至关重要的商品。
With the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic in the early months of 2020, China became the first country to embark on the largest work-from-home (WFH) experiment ever conducted. As China’s workforce begins to return to offices, lessons from some of its leading companies and their respective SSCs will help to illustrate how — with the right structure, culture, processes, and technology—working remotely can boost productivity and morale, bringing together all the elements to enable a new way of working that will make centres fit for the future.
In this report In this report, we looked at how COVID-19 has shaped the shared services operating model, and how it has affected the workplace.
Last year marked a watershed in human history. In January 2020, facing an unprecedented new global threat, China found itself at the forefront of a soon-to-be pandemic and under pressure to rally together behind a common national purpose. With many multinationals including Disney, Nike, McDonald’s and Hyundai having come to rely on China’s efficient factories and increasingly affluent consumers, the impact of China’s markets shutting down was nothing short of revolutionary.
As a result of COVID-19, companies were forced to restrict travel to China or temporarily shut stores, offices, restaurants and theme parks. The disruption to Chinese manufacturers also rippled through global supply chains, making it difficult for many global as well as Chinese companies to obtain the goods critical for their operations.
This report focuses on five areas that we believe are most significant as shared services leaders in China plan to ‘stay ahead’:

As we turn to multiple technologies that can combine in different ways to enhance the skills and ability to the existing workforce and to improve physical capital, in this report we unravel a global perspective on the challenges that hamper the growth of SSCs in the era of automation to boost productivity.
The consistent, aggressive commitment to productivity improvements (more than half the global SSOs are targeting 7+% per year) are keeping Shared Services leaders focused on innovative solutions that improve effectiveness, efficiency and performance. Today, that is predominantly achieved by leveraging automation and data analytics.
This year’s report is broken into five core areas that guide modern Shared Services: Operating Model; strategy; Talent; Automation & the Digital Workforce, and Future Technology Opportunities.

Every year, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveys the global marketplace for insights on trends, technologies and practices that drive performance. These insights are then analysed and collated into our annual industry report.
SSON’s annual industry report highlights the trends underpinning current shifts, identifies the ‘new, improved’ profile of the modern Shared Services team, and points to how SSOs are delivering more value by moving towards knowledge-based work. In this report, we deep-dived into how these trends are playing out in China. We hope it will guide you to improved decisions as you move your operations forward.
