Are you aware of the M&A paradox?
There are more Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) happening than ever before, but the failure rate is at an all-time high. Study after study puts the failure rate of mergers and acquisitions between 70% and 90%. One reason is that the people aspects are overlooked both in the due diligence stage and also within the integration planning & implementation stages.

If you don’t get the people side of due diligence right, then failure is the likely result. Solid HR support can play a key role in M&A success by helping to manage the complexity of Compliance, IT and Culture. Don’t make it harder for your business and call on a HR professional sooner to start turning M&A challenges into HR opportunities. Some of the biggest cost implications are sat within the HR/People element of a business, getting it wrong is not an option.
What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
Brilliant service, friendly staff, lovely team
Amazing service and support from extremely knowledgeable people, who also take great care in the standard of their work. Can't fault them, thank you so much!
5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
