HR Executive Post-Merger Communication to Employees
To: All Employees
From: Senior VP of Human Resources
It’s now been three months since we completed the merger to form (company name). The objectives of this email are to update you on how the integration of the two businesses is progressing, to explain what integration challenges lie ahead, and to highlight how you can continue to help the company deliver on its potential.
First of all, I’d like to thank you for your cooperation and hard work. Integrating two companies is tough, and I recognize that many of you have put in significant additional effort to help the two companies begin operating as one.I’d also like to thank everyone for their patience. During a transition there are always more questions than answers, and I appreciate your ability to stay focused and productive in spite of the inevitable ambiguity and uncertainty that mergers always bring. We still have more to do. I’m aware of the differences in operating styles of the two companies and am committed to the continuous evolution of a new and effective (company name) culture. . . .
