In Q1 2014, our client, a leading provider of corporate, financial, market and
M&A data, acquired a niche competitor focused on mining. The former
competitor had 12 analysts in Manila that needed to be integrated into the
client’s existing operations without disrupting their work.
Communicating the change to the analysts, along with the client’s goals for the
transition, would be critical to our success. Our communication plan included:
Meeting with the analysts to discuss the transition plan
Giving analysts a direct line to key managers for questions
Giving analysts a tour of their new offices, highlighting the benefits
Holding a series of general town hall meetings about Integreon and the client
Holding a series of one-to-one meetings to discuss analysts individual
situations, including the client’s compensation and benefits packages, etc.
Discussions on the differences between the analysts old office and their new
office, as well as how to make the most of the changes
As a result of our comprehensive work with the client, 100% of the acquired
team was transferred, with no disruption to their ongoing work.
