Hi everybody – My name is Matt and I support M&A integration efforts for HR. I am interesting in learning how others work with HR in integration planning and post-merger integration. For us, we create a recurring weekly meeting and have work stream meetings with all
Hello Matt, My company does the same with HR. Though initially before closing we have separate meetings 1 with internal SME’s then one with the target SME’s, after closing we then have a joint weekly meeting.
Hi Matt! I also support HR and for our most recent M&A, we had the M&A Program governance structure below:
Enterprise Integration Team
| HR M&A Program Exec. Steering Committee (Owns strategy, interprets enterprise strategic plans, provides budget parameters, owns policy, decision authority / ownership)
| HR Business Lead (Represents the business / sponsor, overall business lead on the program, shapes the business solution, leads program in collaboration with program office)
| HR M&A Program Office (Defines program/project standards, managers program plan, monitors milestone progress/status, managers interdependencies across program, manages/escalates program level risks/issues, facilitates level 2&3 decisions, partners with change management team to manage change/communications for M&A activities)
| (Initiatives) M&A 1, M&A 2, M&A 3…
| (Workstreams & Support) Workforce Transition, Standardization, etc.
One aspect that was helpful for our merger was a formal Turnover to the Business. Once the merger was complete, we brought all the stakeholders together and outlined all the Turnover activities for each functional area. I am the HR Lead for M&A so I met with all the groups to clearly outline next steps for HR. Then in addition to the workstream meetings, I also met with the core HR team regularly to ensure they were in the loop on all activities.
