M&A due diligence:
HR and benefits

A Critically Important Process for Mergers and Acquisitions

Conducting thorough HR due diligence plays a pivotal role in the success of mergers and acquisitions. Some of the challenges that can arise, such as financial, legal, and even cultural issues, will reduce workplace morale and productivity if HR due diligence is not exercised. The importance of HR due diligence lies in its ability to provide acquirers with a comprehensive understanding of the target company’s employment practices, liabilities, and organizational culture.

This process is instrumental in uncovering HR-related liabilities and risks that could impact the financial performance of the business post-acquisition. For instance, HR due diligence may bring to light issues such as non-compliance with employment regulations, deficient HR policies and processes, employee conflicts, or potential legal disputes. Failure to rectify these issues prior to the acquisition could result in substantial costs for the acquiring company, including penalties and legal fees.
