“An engaged workforce is a productive workforce, and a productive workforce drives revenue. And isn't that what everyone wants at the end of the day.”
Importance of culture and leadership
This episode of M&A Science is a recap of the M&A Science Virtual Summit that was held in June. In this session, the topic of discussion is about the intersection of leadership and culture in M&A, hosted by Dr. Klint Kendrick, Director of Strategic Workflow Initiatives at SC Johnson. Our guest panelists are:
- Sallie Cunningham, HR Executive and Integration Leader at Cytiva
- Dr. Keith Dunbar, Managing Partner at JKD Talent Solutions

Together, the group discusses the importance of culture and leadership, when to start leadership assessment, and pros and cons of culture and leadership diligence. They also give tips on how employers can motivate employees to come to work for a reason other than money as well as how to identify the right employees to retain. The session closes with a discussion on the importance of middle managers and how to deal with depression during unprecedented times.
