Mergers and Acquisitions

The importance of people issues is the most widely underestimated factor in a merger or acquisition transaction. Whilst economic conditions may vary the number of transactions in the marketplace, one constant is that managing the people and change elements of mergers and acquisitions can be a highly complex process.

Most companies work hard in the run up to closing a deal, but can forget that the benefits of the deal are achieved only once the integration is completed successfully.

We design and support all angles of people issue management in acquisitions, divestitures and post merger integrations. Our approach takes a holistic view of the critical people and change activities required to meet the strategic goals at each phase of the deal - from pre deal planning to post deal execution, integration delivery and evaluation.

We have assisted large global M&A transactions by way of HR due diligence, preparation for Day 1 and post-merger integration. This includes providing advice on the new organisation design, HR harmonisation, people transition, consultation requirements, culture change, talent management, communications and HR transformation.
