Onboarding for Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Intentionally designed onboarding and offboarding experiences for mergers & acquisitions

Whether a merger or acquisition is structured to add complementary products or services, achieve economies of scale, reduce costs, acquire critical talent and skills, or expand geographical coverage, an intentional approach to communication, transparency and alignment is central to the transaction’s success. It begins with onboarding.

Onboard & Enculturate

Address all administrative and compliance tasks associated with a high volume of employees in a short timeframe. Communicate the organization’s benefits, mission and vision. Reduce friction, stress and productivity losses due with clarity, communication and enablement. Confirm roles, reporting alignment and connect new employees to buddies or mentors.

Align & Integrate

Enable managers and leaders to have in-placement conversations, reset goals and expectations to organizational and transaction goals, conduct integration town hall discussions and leadership roundtables to sustain engagement and alignment to drive deal success.
