HR M&A Forum

Future Proof Your Organization
NOVEMBER 27 - 28, 2018 | THE CONFERENCE BOARD | NEW YORK, NY

November 27 - 28, 2018

Challenges You May Be Facing

Most acquisitions today are derailed by challenges related to people. What was once considered a “soft issue” is now a real concern that companies must address in order to advance their M&A plans. Is your organization ready to build out its deal strategy, but not confident in your HR team’s preparedness? This seminar can help.
