Dear Claudia,

My company is merging with a competitor, and after attending some transition meetings I'm really concerned about the culture clash that is happening between the two companies. The business leaders may be in favor of this deal, but the rest of the employees are not at all convinced. I recruited most of our employees in the last five years, and many are already starting the process of posting resumes and looking for new jobs. What can I do to stem the tide?

Bracing for Impact

Dear Bracing,

I'll give you the disclaimer right up front: I'm not an HR Generalist, so no tactical HR advice coming from this quarter. I'm sure that there are others in our community well equipped for that, and I welcome their comments and suggestions for you here. I am, however, a business pragmatist, and the heart of this question is the human element in a time of radical business change...
