Merger Mania for CPA Firms

0 Avatar slide for blogIt seems that merger mania still reigns. It started with larger firms acquiring smaller firms and evolved to gigantic firms acquiring other gigantic firms and everything in between.

Have you recently been merged into a larger firm? Even though it is all about clients and industry niches, progressive firms still focus on the people side of things. In a merger, some people lose, especially those professional support people in the firm being acquired.

How did the acquiring firm in your situation perform relating to embracing your people into their culture? Did they orchestrate all of the on-boarding activities so that everyone felt included? Do you now have a clear sense of what is going to unfold during the next year? Or, do you feel like there is a dark cloud hanging over your head?

If you joined the right firm, they have a clear plan, well-documented and well-executed for making the people they are merging-in feel part of something extraordinary. They excel at communication.

How do you feel about going into the office this morning?
