Possible Sources for Progress of the Shared Service Market in Hungary


  • Róbert Marciniak

    () (University of Miskolc)


The aim of a shared service model is improving processes and ensuring more cost-efficient operation. In this paper I focus on the Hungarian shared service market. In my research I analyzed a number of Hungarian shared service case studies to disclose the main characteristics of the market. To determine those drivers that contribute to the growth and those obstacles that hinder it, I interviewed some key experts from these service markets. In this paper I introduce the role of Central and Eastern Europe in the global market, the importance of this sector in the labor market and state budget and uncover the competition among the regional countries. I compared the positions of these countries in this competition and analyzed what could be the break point for Hungary.
