Q. How do you react to a person fearing job losses given redundancies in firms that are merging with others in the same domain?

 

A. Any merger, if crafted strategically, ought to have multiplicative and complementary impact. Such a synergy would lead to some redeployment of the combined resources in such a manner that the combined entity gains competitive advantage. Fear of job loss comes when one is rigid about one’s capabilities. What happens is that some jobs get redundant, while new types of job emerge. One needs to be open to relocation or reskilling in sync with the emergent reality of the merged organisation.
