Panel: Post-merger integration - the importance of retaining employees and maintaining company culture

In this session the speakers will discuss driving strategic growth when building on acquisitions. They will discuss the global M&A market and initial tips on executing transaction with ease whilst retaining talent at all levels. 

  • How can you best assess the cultural fit during your diligence processes and how should integration experts think about talent engagement and retention in the midst of a merger?
  • Highlight the importance of people management after a corporate transaction
  • Quite often culture has been viewed as the intangible element left to address in the post-integration phase - What culture moments really matter in a deal and how can you make sure you embed these into your value creation plan at the pre-deal phase?  
  • How can large firms attract talent from Gen Y and Z?
