Without conducting thorough human due diligence on potential people problems, M&As are likely to cause significant productivity disruptions and talent attrition. Personality assessments are better tools for bridging M&A cultures than employee surveys, as they provide far more data insights into peoples’ mindsets. Personality assessments also double as a professional development opportunity for the takers. If an organization doesn’t have personality assessments and coaching built into its professional development plan, the event of an M&A is a great time to integrate one. Doing so will assist the merging companies throughout the integration process and will continue to cohesively develop their talent thereafter.
