Mercer also delivers private development programs tailored to individual organizations’ unique needs. Our customized program can be conducted in local languages using country-specific or global material. We tailor simulations and training to incorporate the client’s specific approaches to deals, as a kickoff for the corporate development, legal, finance and HR teams on an unfolding transaction, or address specific deal-related topics, such as risk mitigation for people issues, talent assessment/retention, and integration planning and execution.
By involving key individuals from an organization’s corporate development, legal, finance and HR teams, Mercer is able to create programs that help teams gain a mutual understanding of each other’s role.
We emphasize that human capital input is required throughout the deal process: in the business case, the purchase agreement and the integration plan. Mercer’s program helps organizations build personal relationships and team spirit, both of which are essential to high-performing, cross-functional M&A teams.
Over the past 14 years, more than 5,000 professionals from a diverse mix of companies around the world have endorsed The Mercer M&A Ready™ Development Program and have consistently ranked the program 4.8 out of 5.0.
