HR’s Guide To Mergers And Acquisitions: Critical Strategies For Navigating And Facilitating Workforce And Business Transitions
|Date / Time:
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) happen often in business, and HR will play a significant role in the process, regardless of which end of the transaction your organization is on.
While much of the M&A process focuses on corporate assets, brand equity, and intellectual property, the value of a workforce and the people involved play an increasingly larger role. This often necessitates HR intervention to help facilitate the transition and identify opportunities in human capital.
Join us to examine the challenges and opportunities that exist for HR leaders throughout the entire life cycle of a merger or corporate acquisition. Our presenter will provide strategies for effectively navigating the process and carving out inroads for HR as they become a strategic business partner.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
