dc.description.abstract <p>This study examines the organizational, personal, and professional impact of mergers and acquisitions as viewed from the perspectives of six employees from an acquired organization. A qualitative methodology using a purposive sampling was employed in this research to produce a case study that combines the findings from the literature with the results of in-depth interviews of the six employees conducted during the 18--24 month post-merger period. An emergent design was used to identify the common issues and concerns of those interviewed. Those included communications, organizational culture impact, employee loyalty, leadership changes, and employee productivity and motivation.</p>
