9:10 AM CASE STUDY: Telstra Case Study: Combining Captive and Outsourcing Models to Optimise Global Expansion Strategies

Telstra is well-known for its telecommunications and technology as one of Australia’s largest companies. Telstra also operates in over 20 countries globally – and its overseas business has been expanding rapidly. Telstra is establishing global shared services operations that are functionally aligned and a mixture of captive and outsourced operations. Within HR, a single global Shared Services model is being put in place, including a customer support centre in the Philippines, which will align with Telstra’s successful Australian model (which currently manages over 100,000 HR queries annually and has outstanding e ciency performance metrics). Darren will share the challenges of balancing the move to a global support model whilst maintaining quality support across current Shared Services operations in Australia.

He will also share:
