Exeter, United Kingdom – 17th March 2008 - HumanConcepts, the developer of OrgPlus®, the leading software for workforce modelling and intelligence, today announced its latest webinar for HR professionals titled, ‘HR Management: Playing a Vital Role in Mergers & Acquisitions’. The webinar will take place on 27 March 2008.

In a recent survey by Towers Perrin, over half the HR executives polled listed incompatible company cultures and loss of key talent as the major reason that mergers and acquisitions (M&A) failed. The webinar will address these issues and how new HR technologies are being used to overcome the challenges of integrating people and departments following any M&A.

Jim Candler, VP of Global Customer Success at HumanConcepts and an award-winning author and thought leader in the field of HRIS, will be the host for the webinar. The event includes a Q&A session along with a customer case study discussing how the use of workforce modelling and best practices in organisational charting deal with the complex process of merging large companies.

“As HR becomes increasingly involved in company M&A, HR management needs to be empowered” said Scott Jenkins, Director, at HumanConcepts UK. “Using HR technology such as OrgPlus gives them the necessary tools to manage a company’s most valuable asset – its people.”

Hosted by HumanConcepts, the ongoing series of short, no-cost interactive webinars demonstrate the tools and techniques that HR professionals and IT support teams can use today to support organisational change, workforce planning and critical decision-making. During the webinars, human resource executives from several companies, including British Telecom, will provide solutions to some of HR’s most pressing problems such as reducing costs by ensuring HR data accuracy, providing access to key HR metrics and reducing the time required to implement workforce reorganisations.
