Merging HR Ops and your workforce is vital to M&A success.
You need a plan and a team that is fast, thorough, and experienced.


The Agenda

  • Governing and Communication
  • Discovery
  • Planning and Key Actions

Mergers and acquisitions are a quick way to grow a company, but so many fail because the human resources are merged poorly. Merging teams requires a plan and a team that understands it.

Achieving synergy during a merger or acquisition is the key to success. Many M&As have failed because not enough attention was paid to HR synergy. It starts with a plan and a team.

The Goals

  • Achieve Synergy
  • Maintain Compliance
