Abstract

The use of acquisition as a business expansion tool proves to be one of the most used and widely adopted methods given its effectiveness and relative speed in ] comparison to other expansion methods.

Given its vastly documented advantages, there is a lot more that can and should be explored within existing literature on the topic, in particular the impact on an employee’s motivation and organisational commitment.

This research has been designed to explore the impact organisation acquisition has on the employees of an acquired organisation and whether their motivation and commitment to their organisation is impacted. This research also compares the results of two industries to explore if the hypothesised impacts are individual to a particular industry. This research aims to highlight the impact and bridge the gap of perceptions of an employees diminished motivation during times of change, in particular, acquisition and provide a platform for future research and exploration to understand the employee’s journey during an acquisition and provide constructive
tools to assist employers during this time of change and expansion.
