Mergers and Acquisitions

Having an experienced HR partner
to ensure a seamless business transformation is invaluable.

Ensuring a Smooth Transition

A merger or acquisition must work in practice as well as it does in theory. After all the financials have been reviewed, legal terms discussed and contracts are signed, all parties involved still must successfully integrate. During this often chaotic period, having an experienced HR partner to ensure a seamless business transformation is invaluable.

Human resources professionals are the most likely to understand all of the moving parts involved in mergers and acquisitions integration. A qualified HR firm can help plan and implement an effective integration strategy that accounts for all possible pitfalls. There are countless issues that can disrupt, obstruct or interrupt the process. A complete integration can take months or even years to complete, depending on the size of the companies merging. While you’re focused on overseeing your business growth, we at TPG HR Services USA will take care of all of the details and loose ends.

A Plan for the First 100 Days

It’s in the best interest of all parties involved (whether buying, selling or entering into a merger of equals) that the companies fit together like puzzle pieces, rather than crash into each other like out of control vehicles. Your employees may need help coping with the change, which is essential in maintaining productivity. They may also have questions about their job security, who they will be reporting to, changes in benefits, relocations and much more.

Our specialists at TPG HR Services USA have overseen dozens of successful mergers and acquisitions and are prepared to ease the transition for you and your employees. We will work with you to create a comprehensive integration plan that will layout a step-by-step blueprint for success.

In many cases, we can begin working on your integration strategy during the due diligence phase of the merger or acquisition. The earlier you involve our HR experts in your plans, the better we can position you for long-term prosperity.

In today’s business climate, mergers and acquisitions are often essential in promoting growth, cutting costs, increasing profits and expanding services. On one side of the deal, buyers are about to commit considerable resources and assets to the acquisition and need to be aware of all of the risks. On the other side of the deal, sellers also need to understand how the acquisition will change the nature of their company. Whether you’re a buyer, seller or are involved in a merger of equals, it is critical that you know what you’re getting into before committing to any final decisions.

Maximizing Your Potential

The human resources aspect of mergers and acquisitions is often ignored. While many companies perform their due diligence in terms of legal liabilities and financial analyses, the human element is equally important and can make or break the long-term outcome of any deal. Successful mergers and acquisitions must entail a thorough examination of components of both companies and a projection of how seamlessly the entities will integrate.
