People and M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions)

We help People Leaders navigate M&A – from HR Due Diligence, Organisation Design, People Transition and Business / HR readiness for Day One through to HR Function transformation.

For People leaders, M&A activity, whether it is an acquisition or a divestiture, can bring both exciting new prospects and thorny challenges. There are opportunities to create value through redesigning the organisation, modernising systems and transforming the HR function.

M&A also brings HR Diligence responsibilities, regulatory and talent retention risks, and a range of costs that need be managed – all whilst keeping the business-as-usual HR engine running.

At this time of change and uncertainty, employees will look to their People Leaders for guidance and clarity. Retaining top talent through the change associated with M&A, whilst keeping employee wellbeing in mind, demands special care and attention including thorough preparation and planning.
