Managing HR costs during mergers and acquisitions

Research shows most mergers and acquisitions don't live up to their potential.

Much of the shortfall is due to a lack of attention to human resource issues. The cost of a transaction can increase substantially as a result of the unknown costs of off-balance sheet and un-accrued costs. Costs include future pensions, benefits and compensation liabilities, as well as unaccounted for human resource problems. These issues can mean the difference between a profitable or costly acquisition.

Our team of professionals address people issues at every step of the transaction; from strategy development through due diligence to post-integration.
