CHANCES FOR THE DEPRESSED CENTRAL EUROPEAN REGIONS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION TO DEVELOP: CAN SHARED SERVICE CENTRES BE THE DRIVING FORCE?

Csaba Roland Ruzsa

Abstract


Shared Service Centres (SSCs) may lead to job creation in the professional field in the less developed EU region. By 2015, in the CEE region, the number of employees in this sector exceeded 335 000 and the trend tends to be increasing heavily. Looking at the actual numbers of the sector, the author tries to define the main decision making factors for a SSC to settle down in the region. The paper focuses on the evaluation of possibilities, arguing if the development of the SSC sector can continue creating jobs in this region.

KEYWORDS: regional development, education, technological change, economic development, growth, shared service centres.
