Preparing for a Merger and Acquisition integration?
Did you know about the M&A paradox?
There are more Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) happening than ever before, but the failure rate is at an all-time high. Study after study puts the failure rate of mergers and acquisitions between 70% and 90%. One reason is that the people aspects are overlooked.
HR’s critical factors to M&A success
If you don’t get the people side of due diligence right, then imminent failure is the likely result. Your human resources team should play a key role in M&A success with managing the messy complexity of Compliance, IT and Culture. Don’t make it harder for your business (If only an HR partner was called upon sooner!) and turn M&A challenges into HR opportunities.

The benefit of having an expert HR BPO provider throughout an M&A deal, for both buyer and seller, cannot be understated.
