Put managers to work on your merger
Abstract: Good frontline managers can help their company accomplish the many tasks involved in closing a deal and making the merger transition. If managers are left out or undervalued, they’re likely to become disengaged or even impede the integration process, and the company wastes vital human resources. Therefore, merging companies must put managers at all levels to work communicating the merger to employees and handling integration tasks. This article’s sidebar explains how to identify those managers best suited to assume important merger-related duties.
