M&A: Post-merger integration
Today’s seller market means there’s significantly less incentive for sellers to invest time and resources in ensuring an orderly post-close transition and integration for buyers. Pressure on buyers to close deals quickly impacts the complexity of preparing and executing post-merger integration plans.
Mercer post-merger integration (PMI) HR consultants provide strategic integration planning from Day One. Critical requirements, including risks, timing and deal objectives, are carefully mapped out. We have proprietary methodologies and tools to help align people, organizational cultures and work styles to business and deal strategies.
Although corporate buyers and financial buyers may have different incentives, there’s one goal both share: flawless integration that enhances their business objectives.
For corporate buyers, Mercer can help assure an organization’s long-term success. Our grasp of issues spanning the entire HR spectrum not only ensures Day One readiness for everything from payroll services to HR technology but also helps organizations merge diverse cultures and work styles.
PMI for financial buyers helps maximize monetization. Locking in leadership, eliminating workforce redundancy and streamlining infrastructure can support higher prices at resale.
The global component of a merger or an acquisition often proves to be a stumbling block to a smooth transition. Differences in culture, workforce compensation and local regulations are just a few of the issues a deal can face. Mercer’s global footprint means we have resources in place and on the ground with firsthand knowledge and experience in overcoming global barriers and ensuring seamless integration.
Mercer PMI HR consultants have been helping thousands of companies for more than 30 years.
