This year Google has been on an acquisition spree. Actavis and Forest Laboratories announced a mega merger. Apple is even buying some startups in 2014. In July, AT&T agreed to buy DirecTV for nearly $50 billion. With promises made to customers of both companies, time will tell where the chips may fall. While company mergers and acquisitions are activities as old as commerce is itself, stakeholders and the general public always wonder, “Will it work?”

 

It is a known fact that most M&A activity fails to fulfill its potential. The archives of the Wall Street Journal show that upwards of 80 percent of M&As fail to fulfill the strategic goals that justified the merger and/or acquisition within the expected time frame. In many cases the resultant organizations are less effective and less successful than the original two by themselves.

Company executives realize the importance of generating revenue, customer acquisition and product innovation. Yet, in any company, it also is critical for executives to focus on employee retention as a means to deliver better customer service and build stronger brands. Employee retention becomes even more challenging when the economy is on the upswing.

 

While it may seem counterintuitive, one of the best ways to build employee retention is to build a workplace culture that extends beyond the office and recognizes that employees need balance.

A recent Google search of the words “business teamwork” returned over 54,100,000 results.

 

It’s one thing for business professionals to advocate working as a team — it’s another to gain perspective from someone who has led a “team” in its more traditional format.

 

Inspired by his lifelong mentor, legendary coach Jack Ramsay, Jack McKinney would ultimately come to symbolize leadership and teamwork — notably as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Indiana Pacers. In addition to being named NBA Coach of the Year in 1981, McKinney is the recipient of two NBA Championship rings as a member of the coaching staffs of the Portland Trail Blazers (1977) and the Lakers (1980).
