The goal of the Business Service Center Forum (BSCF) and its fourth annual conference is to craft a vision where we see the sector of shared services in Slovakia developing in the next 5-7 years. Business Service Center Forum represents the business service industry with over 35,000 employees from a wide range of services and locations across the country. We will be very excited to welcome key BSC stakeholders envisioning the future scope of business services and the business environment in Slovakia influenced predominantly by RPA (robotic process automation) and dynamic changes on the labor market.
