MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this study is to develop and test a conceptual framework of the impact of selected human factors on acquired firm lower level employees' perception toward acquisi tion success. The variables selected for inclusion in the framework have been identified from the following relevant literature in the (1) post acquisition integration area, (2) management area, and (3) strategy implementation area. The framework incorporates direct effects of employees' involvement in the integration process, extent of employees being informed about integration activities, and the amount of company support on employees' perceptions toward acquisition success. In addition, the level of integration has been included in the framework as a possible moderating variable.
Based on two acquisi tions , made by one firm in the U. S. banking industry, the study examines the above relationships with a number of statistical techniques. These techniques includes correlation analysis, t-test, and regression analysis. Two hundred and fifty four respondents completed the study employees' questionnaire.
