In my career I have seen employee communication about an acquisition occur at different stages. The standard is announcing the acquisition once the SPA has been executed. In other cases, typically small-medium sized firms, employees can be made aware that the detail is coming even before all agreements are signed. There have sometimes been variations in this with higher level management who are made aware of the deal early.
Is there another use case I’m missing? And what is this groups input on when employee communication should occur?
