Why You Should Attend

Post Merger Integration for HR Professionals

In today’s global, competitive environment, mergers are sometimes the key to long-term survival for organizations. HR professionals are critical to the post-merger integration process. Charged with retaining talent, stimulating employee performance, and creating a renewed corporate culture, the HR role is crucial to the success of any post-merger integration. As PMI is defined as the aspect of an organizational merger that involves combining the original socio-technical systems of the merging organizations into one such newly combined system, it is required that HR professionals are aware, knowledgeable and able to enforce a change management program before, during and after the integration.


It has been estimated that nearly two-thirds of mergers and acquisitions have failed due to HR-related issues including incompatible cultures, loss of key talent, diminished trust and management styles. From creating and executing 100-day plans to developing employee communications to ensure a successful integration, the HR professional is tasked with making the seemingly impossible possible. This course aims at bringing all the necessary tools and real-life examples for HR professionals to achieve desired results.
