Engaging employees during mergers & acquisitions

Read an interesting article about involving employees during merger & acquisition – a report by Gallup.

One of the key issues that employees talk during merger or acquisition is “Will I be ok post the M&A?”. For those who are actively involved in the M&A process this may not be a worry, but for most of the employees it can be an issue. In India employees don’t speak up that easily, I have made it a point to be as communicative as I can.

Types of Employees

  1. Engaged employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.
  2. Not-engaged employees are essentially “checked out”. They’re sleep walking through their workday, putting time — but not energy or passion – into their work.
  3. Actively disengaged employees aren’t just unhappy at work, they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.
