Mercer Welcomes HR Leaders to New M&A Ready Workshop Location - Houston, Texas
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mercer, a global consulting leader in talent, health, retirement and investments, welcomes HR professionals to register for its inaugural M&A Ready™ workshop (www.mercer.com/maready) in Houston, Texas which topped Forbes' recent list of America's Coolest Cities. The workshop will be held April 24-25, 2013 at:
The Downtown Club
1100 Caroline Street
Houston, TX 77002 USA
Now in its tenth year and for the first time in Houston, the Mercer M&A Ready workshop series delivers crucial insights into the people issues in M&A transactions including strategy and planning; due diligence, integration planning and implementation, culture alignment; and how HR can ultimately help its organization realize the full value of a deal. Participants learn through a deal simulation that illustrates how these issues often present themselves in real transactions.
Upon completion of the two-day workshop, M&A Ready graduates will be prepared to deliver advice, guidance and leadership around four key M&A human capital challenges identified by Mercer via its extensive experience and research across markets and industries:
- Managing the M&A process in domestic and cross-border deals
- Assessing, engaging and retaining key talent
- Understanding and planning for due diligence and integration across all relevant work streams
- Driving cultural integration
"Houston is home to a great deal of M&A activity due to the strength of the global energy market and related industries as well as the growing number of successful and acquisitive firms based here," said David King, a Mercer Senior Partner and the M&A Business Leader for the Central US market. "We are very proud to host our first M&A Ready here in this increasingly diverse and dynamic city, and look forward to welcoming HR leaders from around the world who want to increase their effectiveness as a strategic business partner."
