The Problem

A Brokerage Firm was in the middle of being acquired by one of their larger competitors. As is common during large acquisitions, massive layoffs were unavoidable. While the executives were handling the logistics of the merger, the Learning and Development department was tasked with providing training opportunities for more than 1700 IT professionals at the company.

THE CHALLENGE

New Acquisitions

In early 2017, a large Brokerage Firm was in a unique and challenging situation. The Brokerage Firm was in the middle of being acquired by one of their larger competitors. As is common during large acquisitions, massive layoffs were unavoidable. While the executives were handling the logistics of the merger, the Learning and Development department was tasked with providing training opportunities for more than 1700 IT professionals at the company.
