HR Forum London: the role of HR and L&D in Mergers & Acquisitions
The Effect of Mergers and Integrating Acquisitions
Workshop session led by Michael Skapinker, FT Contributing Editor and Columnist, Steve Allan, Senior Director, Global M&A Practice Leader at Willis Towers Watson and Kathleen Healy, Partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
Companies today are combining in record numbers. However, some mergers and acquisitions fail to achieve their anticipated objectives. This rate of failure is often due to various factors, such as incompatible company cultures and management styles, loss of top talent and lack of communication.
In the next event in collaboration with Headspring, the FT’s executive education arm, FT Forums will bring together FT Contributing Editor, Michael Skapinker, and industry experts to discuss the strategic role HR leaders will play in helping their businesses deal with the effects of mergers and acquisitions.
