FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Trium Group Improves Employee Engagement and Productivity in Challenging Post-Merger Integration of Global Firms
San Francisco, CA, May 30, 2012 - The Trium Group, the boutique management consulting firm that specializes in organizational transformation and strategy execution, announced that it has recently completed an engagement that mobilized the top 200 executives of a Global 1000 Company around a practical post-merger integration plan.
The client organization was created out of the merger of two large companies, one based in the United States and one based in Europe. A key reason for joining the organizations was to create greater patient access across the globe to its cutting edge, life-saving medicines. However, the pre-merger companies had different cultures and operating models that had not successfully been rationalized, resulting in significant productivity and cultural challenges. The amount of confusion that resulted as an outfall of the merger made it extremely difficult for senior leadership to understand what to address or how to address it. Trium was able to distill an unmanageable number of initiatives, requests and complaints into a few actionable root issues that the executives can tackle. They then orchestrated alignment on those points among the C-level officers and their teams. Based on this work, the client is set up to rationalize initiatives in a way that will give people back time while also reinvigorating levels of individual and team connection to the business vision.
For purposes of confidentiality, Trium at this time will not disclose the client's name nor details that would identify it.
"The leaders we have the privilege of working with recognize that they must take on their own personal evolutions as a necessary part of helping their teams put the pieces together post-merger. By addressing the cultural differences and streamlining initiatives, the organization and its leaders are now equipped to focus on patient outcomes and creating results that really matter. With large scale-efforts in particular, this is arguably the only way real change can sustain itself," said Andrew Blum, Trium CEO and Managing Partner.
Trium Partner Brad Sutton led this engagement.
"Millions of patients rely upon this organization and its people for both life-saving and life-improving therapies and a sense of hope that comes with them. This organization smartly recognizes that it has an opportunity to elevate how it operates in order to achieve greater levels of inspiration and increased productivity," said Sutton.
