Supporting business expansion...
In the ever changing business world M&A activity has never been greater. The HR aspects of mergers and acquisitions can take a back seat behind the financial implications but the failure of such a venture is usually because of people related issues with over 80% of mergers failing to deliver significant shareholder value.
Osprey HR Consultants provides support in the following areas:
- Undertaking pre and post transfer consultation and HR due diligence
- Managing the HR aspects of the integration
- Delivering effective consultation and communication
- Provision of management support and coaching
- Establishing a new culture and enabling change
Osprey HR is experienced in working in conjunction with your organisational sales or acquisitions team. Osprey HR can then further work with your team to establish a pragmatic project plan including the necessary steps to cover TUPE regulations (if applicable) and ensuring that the legislative requirements are met.
Gaining buy-in and co-operation from the unions at all stages is essential, and in a non-unionised environment we can help in the election of staff representatives to ensure effective communication. Osprey HR have proven due diligence and TUPE experience in the private, public and NPO sectors and are adept at developing good relationships with all the parties involved to ensure a smooth passage to an effective conclusion.
Effective management is key to implementing the merger or acquisition and defining the new culture. Osprey HR provides support and coaching for the management team to ensure that they have the necessary skills to keep staff fully focused on their responsibilities rather than focusing on the changes. Working to define and embed vision and values for the organisation can be challenging. This is where Osprey HR will assist with the definition of the new culture and putting together an effective change programme.
