Reply To: How closely should HR and Finance be connected throughout a merger?


From my experience, HR and Finance should be in constant communication during all the phases of a project where people and numbers are involved…and this is the case from start to end : when deciding who is going to be involved from the acquiring company to the due dilligence of the target’s organisation, the evaluation of existing contractual terms, the calculation of potential severance packages, the calculation of new terms for people integrated, tax and legal impact etc
Basically and to make it simple, Finance must always double check HR assumptions and calculations while HR should always provide updated tax and legal framework existing in the target company and most importantly in a cross border M&A.
