Both companies were to be fully integrated, and the telecom operator needed help to plan the integration of the two HR departments in Sweden. The acquiring company had ~3000 employees in Sweden, and the target company had ~1500 employees in Sweden. Additionally, the client had a fragmented HR system and process landscape.
