The Employee Handbook for Navigating Mergers and Acquisitions
A Guide for Preparation, Patience and Perseverance
by Mitchell Lee Marks and Philip H. Mirvis
A key communications tool to use upon M&A announcement or a major milestone like legal approval, the Employee Handbook should be sent or hand-delivered to each employee. In addition to practical advice to help employees understand what's going on around them and manage their own stress and uncertainty, distributing the Employee Handbook also sends an important symbolic message that leadership is sensitive to the situation of employees.
Handbooks can be ordered in a plain format, or with a customized message from the acquiring leader.
