HR's Crucial Role in Mergers and Acquisitions


Understand the essential communications needed during an M&A and the potential challenges that must be overcome to succeed.

According to SHRM, 70 to 90 percent of all mergers and acquisitions fail in a financial sense, with most companies missing their objectives. They say that this is largely due to HR-related activities. In other words, "people issues" are largely to blame when it comes to the failure rate of mergers and acquisitions. This course will help you understand the phases of a merger and acquisition, and how HR can influence each phase. Learn the specific components of HR that must be addressed. This material will also review the frequent failures of M&A, including solutions to prevent the failures. This course is crucial for HR professionals that work in organizations that may be involved in an M&A.
