Increase the role of HR in M&A
Tom C.
Many mergers and acquisitions fail to deliver on their initial promises partly because of cultural/people issues. The role of HR in M&A should be increased to avoid this, especially in early stages. In this way potential culture clashes can be identified and prevented.
 

 
The Role of HRM in Strategic & Objective Planing
Deepak Shirodkar
Mergers are specifically integrating two different systems and planning modes into one stream and the top Mgt and HR should play a vital role and form strategic objectives and a planning team to focus and derive the set objectives rather than everybody doing different activities without planning.
 

 
The Role of the HR Department in M&A Should Be Increased
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
I concur with Tom. Knowledge, which is mainly in the head of employees (knowledge workers, smart workers), is now the main source of both competitive advantage and core competences. That's why HR should play a dominant role in M&A as strategic partner and change agent if synergies are ever to be achieved.
A major issue with all of this is that HR is often transaction/administration-focused and is not always able to perform this strategic task properly. For more, see our knowledge center on the various roles of Human Resource Management .
