How do best identify key employees in target companies to retain? There have been some interviews that expose how senior managers have been incompetent/do not actually know what is happening in their own departments/teams.
At times to speaking to junior employees can help identify who they see as strong. They can provide a different perspective and at times help identify who are the good leaders within the organization that are key to retain. Going bottom up for answers gives a true evaluation of both tactical skillset and potential strong management
Hi Kester, I think this is a good question. Sometimes you see in companies that the management team “steals the show” without involving their team members in the process. I believe that they are the ones who know how the integration will work on an operational level. They should be more involved.
