Are you aware of 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 Mergers and Acquisitions success
If you don’t get the people side of due diligence right, then failure is the likely result. Your HR team can play a key role in M&A success by helping to manage the complexity of Compliance, IT and Culture. Don’t make it harder for your business and call on HR sooner to start turning M&A challenges into HR opportunities.
