M&A People Strategy
A merger, acquisition (M&A) or restructuring is one way to bolster a business with instant access to technology, market share and resources. Human capital is often an organization’s biggest asset and this is especially true during a deal integration.
As such, businesses tend to put a great deal of effort into creating a positive, supportive environment in order to retain acquired and existing employees.
Retaining critical talent and ensuring the right people are in key roles are essential to a successful merger, acquisition, or business transformation.
Traditional Compensation Limitations
M&A can lead to uncertainty and significant ‘shake up’ within all companies involved. It can be a jarring time when people begin to feel unsure of their value and position, and question their job security. To counter this, companies often put together lucrative retention packages, but despite that, most still see ongoing attrition of talent, sometimes the best ones are the first to leave.
Deferred (or vesting) cash that is not accessible up front does not enable employees to hit their financial goals.
Doesn’t Drive Retention
Base pay and standard bonuses don’t drive retention. Once paid, there is little motivation to stay if another opportunity presents itself.
Equity/stocks are hard to comprehend and sometimes have negative impact based on market fluctuations.
It is a challenge to keep employees motivated and performing when they know money is guaranteed to come in the future.
