    Within any M&A and integration, the HR/people element tends to be an afterthought.

    Although integration teams succeed in integrating both companies’ HR systems, technology, and processes ‘on paper’, they don’t always devote much attention to the different stakeholder groups. This can create a ‘culture vacuum’ – where stakeholders from both the acquired & acquiring firms are ‘left in the dark’ & uncertain of their future in the integrated company. Such a conundrum can foster ‘merger syndrome’ & job anxiety – both of which can accelerate voluntary turnover & impede productivity.

    So in order to have a successful HR integration, integration teams need to prioritize stakeholder involvement & communication from the start.

    I can understand that. Hr is key and we plan on it from the beginning. That said there are still issues that arise. Of ten in larger companies integration into HR systems etc are multi department functions and they often are not aware of the steps each other must take.
