Before you acquire a company, you need someone skilled in scientifically assessing both the leadership team and the existing HR practices. While you focus on diligencing the finances and operations, our team assesses the people and people systems. Depending on your specific situation and sensitivity, we tailor our process on the degree to which formal assessments are used. Some deal partners want us sitting in management meetings. Some want more formal assessments through personality measures and interviews. Either way, after our process, you’ll understand the personalities of the leadership team and our view of their likelihood to help or hurt your investment thesis. We will also assess the “company vibe” and existing HR practices to identify early opportunities for optimization.
