Human Resources (HR) Management Handbook for Acquisitions


The role of HR during an acquisition or divestiture is to lead decision processes, execute the transaction, and prepare the company for integration. HR departments can support the effectiveness of merger and acquisition undertakings by taking accountability for certain aspects of the transaction and decisions, as well as by building relationships with the target company.

The “Human Resources Management Handbook for Acquisitions” paper describes our view of the essential functions of HR management in the execution and delivery of an acquisition or divestiture and HR’s mission in supporting acquisitions, including:

  • Identify, evaluate and dispose of transaction-related concerns
  • Serve as the primary point of contact for HR processes
  • Deliver a single coordinated employment solution for acquirer, acquired or divested company
