About the Conference

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) continue to be a key business strategy for many companies. M&As are used as a tool to enable transformation, grab market share, and consolidate markets; they are also a risk-loaded business decision. While many leaders are aware of the financial and legal risks in deals, a less emphasized risk is the people involved, particularly human resources.

M&As place a premium on HR leaders being able to execute successful integrations in order to achieve the deal objectives. As a trusted source for HR insights and expertise, The Conference Board invites you to a thought-provoking program that focuses on the pivotal role of HR in M&As. Walk away better equipped to engage HR executives in the M&A process, including building/bolstering your integration capabilities.
