Another often overlooked, yet critical aspect of any integration of two companies is communications—with customers, employees, business partners, shareholders, vendors, and Wall Street. The Greenberg Group works with organizations in both the design and implementation of a comprehensive communications strategy. Realigning how people are measured and rewarded in the new culture is another key area requiring expert attention. Using both employee focus groups and market data, Margaret partners with Human Resources to redesign performance management and compensation “systems” to better align with what the business is trying to accomplish.
“Margaret is a great communicator. She has dealt with a tough situation with our senior team-blending two cultures among people with strong, entrenched ideas on how business should be conducted. She provided expert service in coordinating and especially directing the diverse human resource activities for our new company. Tremendous understanding of the human element and heartfelt sensitivity to the people involved.” (President, Financial Services Company)
