HR Due Diligence

Mergers and Acquisitions in China

This book examines how to conduct due diligence on mergers and acquisitions for organisations in China written from a management perspective. Aimed primarily at practitioners within the field of International Human Resource Management, it highlights models that appear straightforward and yet are susceptible to oversights and failings. It examines the roles of human resource practitioners from when a target company is identified for mergers or acquisitions through to assessing its risks. The book incorporates adopting human resource management strategies under differing business conditions, negotiating to secure the deal and integrating the new business unit to the merged or acquired organisation. This title gives a fantastically detailed analysis of due diligence, capturing the nuances of the Chinese way of doing things and how this affects a business environment.

Practitioners and mergers and acquisition consultants who are interested in advanced understanding of the conduct of human resource due diligence. Business advisors and consultants with a major focus on joint venture arrangements. Graduate students pursuing international business or international management studies.
