Managing Strategic Culture Transformation
Managing strategic culture change in the M&A process is an essential component of an organization’s long-term success. Culture drives employee satisfaction and creates a reputation that attracts the best job candidates in a competitive market. It is about more than office perks. A dynamic, inclusive and responsive newly-merged workplace culture can drive profits, too.
When it comes to identifying a shared understanding of what contributes to workplace culture, everyone has their own ideas, their own biases and their own comfort zones. In fact, sometimes it feels like no one can agree on how to define it in the first place.
Maybe that’s why there comes a day in every merger when the culture team sits down and says something like, “what do we even mean by culture in the first place?” followed by a question such as: “when it comes to shifting mindsets and behaviors, what does that actually look like?”
In this virtual experience, we’ll answer those questions by reviewing the proprietary methodology we use to advance success in post-merger culture integration. We’ll also discuss tactics you can use to ensure all culture integration projects begin as early as the due diligence phase.
