Mergers and Acquisitions - The Value of HR After the Deal
Oftentimes it's an alluring, seductive business proposition—Mergers and Acquisitions. And as the economy strengthens, the number of them brewing is on the rise. That can add big dollars to companies' bottom lines. But, did you know that, on average, only about 30% of acquirers actually pull off a successful deal?
M&A is a complex endeavor with considerable room for deals to fall apart. Human resources' role in the due diligence and integration processes has the potential to better define where the actual value is in a deal beyond mere 'synergies' and pay and benefits integration. These unique HR-driven insights can add a significant, critical perspective to executives who rely on deep data that get to the heart of why (or why not) to move forward with a merger or acquisition. In short, there's a lot more room for HR to support value creation in M&A than you may have originally thought.
In this one-hour webinar, participants will learn how to apply M&A concepts to the due diligence process and post-integration initiatives. The following topics will be discussed:
• The critical role you can expect to play with respect to due diligence prior to a merger or acquisition
• How to integrate and join forces following the merger
o What makes the difference
o The key factors that drive success
o Strategies for getting stakeholders on board so you can bring about positive results
o Communicating effectively before, during, and after changes take place
• Applying basic merger and acquisition principles to other organization change initiatives
WHEN: Tuesday, January 15, 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET)
