Location Assessment and Determination

The decision-making process of where to locate your Shared Services is not straightforward. The answer depends on your business model. Wage arbitrage and tax incentives are marginal factors in the overall decision process. An organization can have conflicting internal objectives and priorities influencing the choice to realize a shared service center.

Your business needs to follow a sound evaluation process based on a set of criteria tailored to fit your marketplace and consider your business’s peculiarities. A shared decision amongst stakeholders can ensure that the organization makes the right decision and will deliver the best long-term solution with the right level of risk.

Location Risk Assessment Must Consider Many Location-Related Factors

The location risk assessment considers internal and external risks that could impact the location choice. The location assessment evaluates all potential locations against static and dynamic criteria. The location determination is made by considering different location-related factors such as talent availability, accessibility, infrastructure, real estate costs, local incentives, and others.

All these factors must be considered when deciding where to locate your Shared Services. A robust evaluation process will ensure that you make the right decision for your organization.
