The process of onboarding new employees is one of the most challenging aspects in any M&A. It’s essential to make sure they are on the same page in the shortest time possible.

It is also crucial for the company acquiring it to get the employees onboarded as fast as they can to maximize the synergies of the deal.

The problem is even more difficult when onboarding acquired workers who are using their own devices or applications from third parties for example, such as cloud-based or social media.
