Research Report: Delivering Value Through Mergers and Acquisitions – HR’s Critical Role

  • March 4, 2021

Merger and Acquisition activity is already rebounding from its initial pandemic-driven slump, and is likely to be rising up the agenda at many organisations. HR has a critical role to play in this work, raising and addressing people-related aspects of transactions to ensure they deliver the intended value.

This research report, sponsored by Bird & Bird and orgvue, explores the key actions and opportunities for HR:

  • Building commercial and transaction-based knowledge in order to make a critical contribution to the business at the target identification, due diligence, and integration stages of M&A work.
  • Getting involved early, using structured conversations and other tools to assess leadership, talent, and culture at every stage of the transaction process.
  • Preparing and leading integration and building a playbook that captures and codifies lessons learnt.
