Mergers and Acquisitions are challenging, both for the "buying" party and for the party being "bought". Two different corporate cultures, two separate sets of company rules and regulations, two ways of doing business and being promoted, two sets of employees, two sets of bosses... This is a case where HR plays a critical role in defining how that one entity will be formed. Come join an interesting sharing of real life experience of HR's role and practices during M&A. Carol Chen from Konecranes will share her own experience and engage everyone in a deep professional discussion. You many not (yet) have experience with it but you are very warmly welcome to learn and ask the questions you think you would have if your employer ever went through an M&A situation. This event is free of charge for FBCS HR Group members. Registration is required to confirm a seat. You may register by replying to fbcs@fbcs.fi until Monday, November 27, 2017, or as long as there are seats available. Registration is binding and no-shows will be charged RMB 200 unless cancelled before the end-of-day of the final registration date.
