Human Resources

Buying and selling a business

The human factor in business transactions

When it comes to planning a business transfer or merger, human resources are often left out of the equation. Yet HR is the main source of resistance to change, so it’s vital to include it in the planning process to ensure the success of your business transfer or purchase/sale. Employees, key personnel, the seller or the buyer – many people will be involved in your transaction, and can make it a success as well as a challenge! Whether you’re planning a succession, a merger or a smooth business transfer, we can support you every step of the way.

Why put people first in a business transaction?

Don’t forget that one of the most important factors in this type of transaction is the people involved.

Your employees and managers are often an integral part of your business success – you’ll need them!
