Thoughtful mergers

ACEN designed and implemented an integration program for acquisitions where the compensation, benefits and retirement packages were aligned with the parent organization. This includes alignment of tasks and roles.

Those who couldn’t be redeployed and reskilled into the expanded organization were given generous separation packages. ACEN continues to provide salary continuance and financial support where possible.

Who's measuring these actions?

We provide alignments with popular progress assessments to offer context and connection within the broader Just Transition movement.
