Webcast - The Human Capital Side of Transactions: A Critical Factor for Success

An organization’s workforce, though not reflected on the balance sheet, is its most important asset. When it comes to successfully executing transactions, the workforce should be at the forefront of preclose planning, as this “asset” is critical to achieving synergies postclose. The most successful transactions leverage the workforce to drive transparency and unlock embedded value. Cultural-fit synergies, talent-retention models, compensation leveling and benefits, and overall target operating-model leadership are just a few of the factors to consider.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how to maximize workforce utility preclose and postclose to ensure deal success.
  2. Identify key qualitative and quantitative measures to inform and potentially affect deal valuation.
  3. Explore how to ensure postclose workforce alignment to deal rationale and other key measures of success.
  4. Understand how the new human capital disclosure requirements could potentially impact your transaction.
