This timely study examines the emotional effects of mergers and acquisitions upon corporate employees.
This timely study examines the emotional effects of mergers and acquisitions upon corporate employees. Using a mergers and acquisitions simulation, the author explores the effects of separation anxiety on individual and group behavior within the target company. Specific questions addressed include whether separation anxiety is stimulated by the anticipated exit due to layoffs of group members or other groups in the organization; how individual and group responses to separation anxiety are affected by the number of group members leaving; and how individual experiences are influenced by whether the individual is leaving or staying in the group.
