The Human Element in Mergers & Acquisitions

Following an acquisition, there are a plethora of issues to be ironed out, like unforeseen employee issues and conflict. Our service is diagnostic and aimed at helping companies develop insight into employee issues during and after re-organisations. We offer objective, “human element” support to companies and consultancies wanting to address issues that staff and talent have, in order to create stability at any stage of an acquisition. We work in the context of diagnosing, troubleshooting and information sourcing, in a sensitive, purposeful and professional manner.

Our Team Optimisation service is a unique offering which helps teams consolidate and move forward in the best possible way. We are also proud to announce an association with Dr Keith Dunbar who is offering Leadership Risk Assessment, providing valuable insight into collective leadership capabilities to aid M & A integration.

For issues relating to individual employee re-engagement, progression, placement, re-deployment, or where redundancies are inevitable following a merger, the ICCS® Service we offer may prove very helpful. This service is also useful in optimising the working relationship between two or more individuals.
