ABSTRACT
The article discusses options in bridging cultural and political boundaries related to the implementation of the human resources (HR) shared services model by public-sector organisations or multinationals in Great Britain. The challenges faced in setting up partnership-based shared services include dealing with different political views on ownership. Organizations should recognise the limits of economies of scale, so they will not include smaller operating companies within the service centre coverage.
