White paper - Mergers and Acquisitions

A merger or acquisition (M&A) is an opportunity to create a more competitive, more cost-efficient company with enhanced brand strength and greater market share potential. One of the top strategic benefits is that the transaction allows management to field a team from a bigger talent pool. However, these disparate talent pools can be a challenge to understand and unify. Workforce challenges, in addition to other planning and integration hurdles, cause many mergers or acquisitions to fall short of expectations.
