SSON Excellence Awards - FAQs
About the Shared Services & Outsourcing Excellence Awards
What are the Awards?
SSON's Shared Services & Outsourcing Excellence Awards is a globally recognised, annual industry awards ceremony, which honors and celebrates SSC and service delivery teams who have exceeded industry standards in their SS&O initiatives. The Awards take place regionally in Europe, North America, Australasia and Asia.
How are they judged?
All applications are judged by leading practitioners who have been selected for their experience across multiple industries and are exemplar members of the services delivery community. They will be looking for teams who are exhibiting lateral thinking and new ideas – and ultimately impacting their organisation’s bottom line in the name of shared services and outsourcing.
It’s not about the size of the project or the budget but the relative differences you and your team are making to your organisation.
Winners will be selected through unanimous agreement between the judges – and since SSON and its vendor partners have no influence on decisions, winning an award is a genuine honour and nod to your team’s hard work.
When can I apply?
