Siemens Shared Services (SSS) is German engineering giant Siemens's answer to administration. The Great Britain-based business, which is a company in its own right, helps other Siemens companies with accounting, human resources, including training — logistics and other non-core services. This frees up divisions to concentrate on their main businesses, and lets SSS take advantage of economies of scale to deliver services more efficiently. Claire Bray, business development manager at SSS describes the company as a one-stop shop for all other Siemens businesses. To address this, the HR department began work on a structure for employees that would eventually give them clear job descriptions, and defined options for career development. Each job family contains a career development path, with differing levels for each of the behavioral competencies, explains Bray. Bray says that one of the key benefits of the model is that it allows people to identify precisely which skills they need.
