The Strategic Role of Human Resources in Mergers & Acquisitions
Maximizing HR’s Value in the M&A Process

June 24-26, 2002 * Crowne Plaza Union Square * San Francisco, CA

The impact of a merger on the workforce is enormous, and the ultimate success - or failure - of each transaction often hinges on issues that only Human Resources is equipped to handle. Leading organizations know that the success of any merger or acquisition effort depends on the strategic role that Human Resources plays from the very beginning of the process - starting with due diligence & risk assessment and ending with the transition & integration of the different corporate cultures, systems and policies.


This conference will address how forward-thinking organizations are engaging Human Resources as a key partner during the M&A process, addressing and managing employee issues including cultural assessment, compensation & benefits, retaining key employees, internal communications and much more! Specifically, you will learn how:

· SRA International positions HR as an integral part of the M&A process
· Intel Corporation highlights the importance of speed, quality & flexibility during M&A
· SAIC addresses unique cultural challenges outside the US
