Make mergers more successful with solid communication

Mergers should increase shareholder value however this seldom happens.  Poor communication and ignoring cultural differences can cause mergers to fail. You need employees to integrate quickly, with scalable deployment and clear communication across regional and international boundaries, plus attend to employee feedback quickly.


Bring employees, management, and executives together in Yammer to quickly share information. Post the latest updates, changes, and goals, and answer employee questions instantly. Conduct polls to track and gather feedback from employees to let them know you’re listening and help maintain employee satisfaction.  Yammer’s built-in Message Translation feature helps ensure employees across the globe can contribute input.


Because Office 365 is integrated with Yammer, employees have access to all the tools they’re familiar with, including Word and PowerPoint, which reduces the need for training and saves time.

  • Communicate with employees and answer questions in real time.
  • Monitor employee feedback by tracking questions and comments and conducting polls.
  • Avoid cultural mismatches that could derail a successful integration.
