Mercer, a global consulting leader in talent, health, retirement and investments, invites HR professionals to register for its M&A Ready™ workshop (www.mercer.com/maready) in San Francisco. The workshop will be held September 17-18, 2013 at:
333 Battery Street
San Francisco, California
Now in its tenth year, the Mercer M&A Ready workshop series delivers best practices and crucial insights into the people issues in M&A transactions. Topics include strategy/planning, due diligence, integration planning/implementation, organizational culture issues, deal metrics; and how HR can ultimately help realize the full value of a deal. Participants learn through a deal simulation that illustrates how these issues often present themselves in real transactions.
Upon completion of the two-day workshop, M&A Ready graduates will be prepared to deliver advice, guidance and leadership around four key M&A human capital challenges identified by Mercer via its extensive experience and research across markets and industries:
• Managing the M&A process in domestic and cross-border deals
• Assessing, engaging and retaining (or downsizing) the workforce
• Understanding and planning for due diligence and integration across all relevant work streams
• Driving cultural integration
“Once again, we are very proud to host our M&A Ready training in San Francisco, and look forward to welcoming HR Executives from around the country who want to increase their role as a strategic business partner to the leadership team,” said Gareth Williams, Mercer Partner and San Francisco Workshop Leader.
