ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study on international mergers and acquisitions as major opportunities for human resource (HR) departments to capitalise on the fresh expertise and practices that the acquired firm brings to the parent company. It was based on a survey of more than 300 multinational companies in Great Britain and six organisational case studies. Results showed that any acquisition inevitably increases the diversity of practice and expertise in the merged firm.
