Sysco Invests To Make Merger Work
The Houston Chronicle quoted Kevin Troutman in the August 12, 2014 article "Sysco Invests To Make Merger Work."
The article discusses the challenges of merging two huge companies.
Setting a positive tone during the transition is critical, said Kevin. Employees of a company being acquired will be incredibly anxious from the time they start hearing about the merger, he noted, and to the extent possible, the acquiring company should provide a reassuring message.
It is best to give employees an example of what to expect. For example, "Do we expect there to be cutbacks, and if so, when and to what extent," he added.
