"An estimated 70 percent to 90 percent of all M&As fail to achieve their anticipated strategic and financial objectives. This rate of failure is often attributed to various HR-related factors." (Society for Human Resource Management).

This is step-by-step guide to make the HR due diligence simple and comprehensible. 

The first chapter gives a general overview of the human resource function, the second chapter introduces a checklist of people-related information, policies, practices and programs for an accurate view of the HR activities under scrutiny, and the third chapter presents a roadmap to making sure you've got the right people, getting management focused on the right things, driving the right behaviors through business, managing employee costs and risks and delivering operational HR during integration.
