Mergers or acquisition integrations can result in “Broken Workplaces” with business owners or HR heads striving to bring the business units together smoothly, standardising and streamlining corporate activities, aligning people strategically to achieve desired outcomes, and ensuring integration synergies are delivered timeously can become a monster to execute.
The Human Cost of change and disruption is often overlooked resulting in the broken effect.
Don’t lose sight of the HOW things work element (business processes and systems; capabilities, mindsets, and people behaviours). Standard Operating Procedures and Policies need to be strategized and formulated to eliminate any potential confusion around the processes.
Hands-on HR can smoothe over your transition and speed up the integration process by formulating your Policies and Processes for your implementation.
