    We will discuss Digital Social Listening as Part of Culture Assessment

    Understanding the voice of the employee is critical to any M&A integration planning effort, but how do you truly articulate the employee perspective in early deal stages beyond leadership interviews and a few quantitative metrics? Employee sentiment analysis, powered by AI and Natural Language Processing, allows you to unlock new insights from employee reviews, focus group notes, and other large text-based data sets to identify cultural integration enablers and focus areas. These insights should inform your integration approach, allowing you to prioritize the critical topics as identified by employees to accelerate the culture integration without compromising employee experience
