  • M&A Masterclass

    We need to reinvent our business practices and one of the foremost opportunities in this context is to identify deals that enhance the value proposition for all stakeholders. 

    Be ready to make the most of this by equipping yourself with the knowledge and skills that you require for these deals. In a seller’s market, transactions are fast-paced; deals are often closed with less information than is ideal with correspondingly higher risks. In a buyer’s market, risk is weighed more carefully.

    The M&A Masterclass is designed to provide key insights into critical people/HR issues that will drive & determine M&A success in future. Experienced Mercer M&A professionals will facilitate an interactive web-based program over two half-days with topics covering best practices for M&A in times to come and beyond.

    Key Takeaways

    • Objectives, challenges and action items around HR Due Diligence along with understanding of focus areas that will have an impact on purchase price
