Beyond Human Resources Integration
Is a merger the right time to launch a transformation?
With the role of Human Resources (HR) becoming more strategic in nature, it has now become typical for this support function to undergo transformation during merger integration. Thinking and planning about HR transformation right from the beginning of merger and acquisition (M&A) cycle positions HR for long-term success. This can further help the companies develop those services and capabilities that are imperative for their future growth objectives. However, for every organization it will be a unique move. Some companies will already be undergoing an HR transformation at the beginning of the merger, while others may still be in the thinking or planning stage.
The attached white paper highlights key factors that organizations should consider while determining exactly how much HR transformation they should undertake during the course of a particular integration. Any important conversation during a merger; be it leadership, culture or talent management; will have HR in limelight. By consciously developing its capabilities throughout the merger lifecycle, HR can pave its own path to success.
