Culture Survey Development
HR M&A Consultant
Join to hear about the research behind the cultural survey and best practices for implementation.
Culture is how work gets done...
These words were spoken by every practitioner I interviewed while creating this robust survey to overcome a culture clash. Join the session to learn more about the deep-dive research and how to use the results upon implementation.
THIS MIDWEST ROUNDTABLE IS OPEN TO HR M&A PRACTITIONERS WHO WORK OR RESIDE IN THE MIDWEST.
We host global roundtables the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

He has since been promoted to Roundtable Manager, supporting the HR M&A community by organizing events and co-creating resources like the due diligence toolkit. Additionally, he supports the M&A community by providing cutting-edge research and consulting services through BJM Consulting.

What is the purpose of the roundtables?
Our virtual global and in-person regional roundtable discussions offer you a unique opportunity for networking, learning, and sharing your knowledge and experiences with your peers. At each session you’ll:
• Expand your network of professionals who share similar interests in Mergers & Acquisitions.
• Exchange experiences and know-how with other group members, allowing you to validate and share ideas, opinions, and best practices.
• Explore emerging practices and new trends in the HR M&A space
What is the HR M&A Roundtable?
The HR M&A Roundtable is a forum for Human Resources professionals and others managing the people, leadership, and culture issues in Mergers & Acquisitions. We offer roundtable sessions, training, tools, and an annual conference.
Who participates in roundtable discussions?
Participation is limited to HR or Corporate Development professionals who are either in a role with M&A responsibilities or who anticipate managing a transaction in the next 12 months.
Where are roundtable sessions held?
We host global virtual roundtable sessions every month. These 60-minute sessions focus on a particular topic of interest to practitioners. Discussions are led by a seasoned HR M&A practitioner who will help ensure what you share can be applied to your deal work. Past topics have included leadership retention, culture assessment, global deals, and total rewards alignment.
We also offer Regional Roundtable sessions in many cities, including Chicago, New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Denver, and London. These sessions usually take place face-to-face but have moved to a virtual format in response to the pandemic.
