Creating a stronger HR function

In mergers and acquisitions, the HR function has an opportunity to role model the successful integration of two teams into one, at the same time as developing the future HR strategy for the business.

This excellent article on HRzone.co.uk sets out the practical steps to take to achieve this.  The strong messages are:

  • communicate to reduce the fear that uncertainty brings
  • design the HR function and its processes and procedures to meet the needs of the business, and
  • implement the integration well, paying attention to both 'hard' and 'soft' issues.

The route map outlined is a useful one for any situation where you are implementing major change.
