Employee experience: it’s a big part of the deal - 12 keys to unlock deal value
July 21, 2022
Acquisitions are tough. Achieving full deal value is even harder. Half to two-thirds of all acquisitions fail to achieve their anticipated deal value. Reasons for these unfortunate outcomes include problems integrating the two parties involved, resulting in culture clashes that could have been mitigated. Culture issues consistently rate as a key source of deal failure. And although every transaction is different, deals primarily focus on protecting and enhancing value while minimizing risk. Based on data from over 10 million employees worldwide (and our analysis), we share the 12 most critical employee experience factors to consider during a deal. We will show you how to use these insights to unlock deal value and to:
- Set specific employee experience priorities based on deal goals
- Define areas of cultural integration risk
- Focus the efforts of the integration teams on the areas of the highest impact
