HR Transaction Services

Organizations that are going through a deal, internal restructuring or other transaction face considerable people challenges that, if not addressed, could result in failure to meet the intended business goals.

PwC provides a service that aims to maximize the transaction's value by addressing issues relating to both people performance and the delivery of HR services. PwC offers advice at all stages of the transaction or restructuring process, including due diligence, deal negotiation and assistance with post-deal implementation.

From pre-bid through post-acquisition, we help companies address the specific compensation benefits and equity issues that surround a transaction. Our expertise in HR strategy, plan design, compliance, and communication helps companies address and resolve the issues of change in order to complete successful transactions, including the smooth assimilation of employees and the implementation of new benefit plans.
