The economy is rebounding and companies are revisiting their inorganic growth strategies with merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in 2016 expected to exceed prior records. Almost every type of M&A involves people, meaning that HR should be intimately involved in the process. This session will provide an overview of the M&A process and specific areas of concern for HR practitioners.
In this session, Klint Kendrick will share general knowledge and best practices gained from several years of working in HR M&A. The slides, which can be made available to participants, will include links to non-proprietary resources that HR practitioners can use as a starting point for their own M&A and integration work.
