Mergers, Acquisitions & Restructuring HR Transformation


Mergers, Acquisitions & Restructuring

Companies embark on a merger, acquisition, or restructuring because they believe it will yield business value. Properly recognizing and managing the human capital aspects of a transaction is critical to realizing this potential value.

Deloitte M&A and restructuring professionals draw upon the experience earned in more than a few thousand global engagements to guide companies on how to enable growth, capture value, and bring the business together (or effectively carve the business out). Our subject matter experience encompasses the full range of Human Capital matters throughout the transaction life cycle, including Total Rewards, Organization & Talent Development, Culture, HR Transformation, and Actuarial Services. These are backed by Deloitte's deep breadth of experience across the disciplines of Consulting, Audit, Tax, and Financial Advisory for a comprehensive approach that is both business-led and people-driven.

Your Challenge

Your HR Function is key in enabling a smooth merger and integration. HR faces multiple challenges which needs their attention, all in parallel. Firstly, HR needs to facilitate Business as Usual. Secondly, HR needs to facilitate the transition in a very reliable, comprehensive and consistent way: e.g. organization design, matching and staffing, workforce transition, harmonization of HR policies and T’s & C’s, people engagement, leadership and culture alignment and labor relations. In addition, HR often needs to reinvent itself to assure synergies and quality HR service delivery to the new integrated organization. Is HR ready to cope with these challenges?
