The Human Connection: Harnessing the Value of a Shared Service Model

Traditionally, the value of the Shared Service model is attributed to its lower cost. While cost savings and scalability are welcomed outcomes, the biggest value of the Shared Service model is to give recruiters time back to focus on the human connection: being a trusted talent advisor and creating meaningful candidate connections.
