With the recent expansion of remote workers and fewer in office workers at many companies, what adjustments should we be thinking about for HR integration strategies?November 7, 2023 at 10:16 am #89620YvonneParticipant
The existing systems must be understood on how company culture is maintained, how performance measures are handled regarding hybrid and remote workforce. It has to be also determined whether the acuquiring parent company is willing to leave the remote sitaution as is or whether the parent company would aim to make signficant adjustments. If signifcant changes are planned, those would have to be evaluated prior to closing and determine the impact on retention and talent acquisition. If the remote worker ratio is not planned to be adjusted, the new performance measures and company culture must be provided through extensive training and communication. Parent company must coordinate this effortth thorugh the invovelment and empowering of local management team.November 13, 2023 at 8:59 pm #89959Matthias LippParticipant
From my point of view there should be more focus on the following topics:
– Self-Service and workflow to fully digitalize all paper-based processes
– Remote HCM WorkshopsNovember 16, 2023 at 4:07 am #90092Kyle FrolingParticipant
You should host a monthly town-hall to update the teams on all the updates surrounding the integration activities and allow them to ask questions. Next you should share your company’s remote worker policies and procedures (if you have them – which I recommend) and assign a HR business partner to each person or group to make sure they are all in compliance. Your IT team will need to make sure that all security measures are in place for them to work securely and safely. Lastly, a survey should be sent out to solicit feedback anonymously about their employee experience.November 16, 2023 at 6:10 am #90099YvonneParticipant
It should be clearly defined whether under the new merged structure the remote wokrforce can still remain as is or whether it needs adjustment. If it is a full integration and one of the merging enities have varied remote worker policies and practices, it can create disalingment in the organization. Once the policies are aligned or the current structure does not require adjustment, there should be speicifc integratio phase meetings with the remote workers involving them with the same intesity as those who are working in the offices. Special workshops, “town meetings” should be held discussing corporate values allowing remote works to feel engaged and to air out concerns.
