For this suitability the moderating impact of differentiation in needs of users on the relationship between location of HR provision and HR service performance is studied. After conducting regression analyses the results showed that differentiation in needs has a moderating impact.

Were other studies discuss the suitability of HR activities for HR service centers based on type of activity, like transactional or transformational. This study provides evidence that the suitability of HR activities for HR shared service center is contingent on the differentiation in needs of users.
