Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) have become one of the main tools for organizational growth, and they are often based on the proposition that there will be financial gains due to a reduction in overlapping processes and people. Employee costs, which make up the largest portion of budget expenses in most companies, do matter, even though they are too often perceived as "indirect merger costs." Most M&As fail because due diligence was incomplete. People matters cost and cross-border mergers have higher potential costs.

During this complimentary webinar, leading expert Clinton Wingrove, executive vice president and principal consultant of Pilat HR Solutions, and Catherine Mercer Bing, CEO of ITAP International, will address what 'people matters' need to be considered -- the challenge of bringing together groups of people who often have different cultures, values and rituals.

This session is highly recommended for representatives of any organization that may be considering or involved in an M&A. Attendees of this webinar will learn about cultural dimensions; how to use the measurement of those dimensions to focus integration activities; and how to compare the organizational cultures and identify gaps that may undermine potential success of M&As.
