Hello Ma'am,
According to me Path Goal Theory is the best way to reduce the anxiety during mergers, because it encourages the employees of both the companies for what they had achieved in the past. It also allows HR to increase the motivation of employees by facilitating the path towards rewards that are available or strategies to increase the reward level that the employees are desiring. HR can successfully guide the employees to identify and pick up behavioral patterns that will lead to successful completion of task. The team leaders can lead their team members to adopt behaviors that should help the team to stay and attain the set goals.
Therefore, employees will feel secure and will not leave the company during mergers.

Hello ma'am
According to me as per path-goal theory, the leader should be defined and properly explained the role and responsibility of organizations what they do and what desired level to be achieved and try to remove the barriers. I think leader sets challenging goals for their subordinates and motivated them to depend on abilities and to feel free to suggest an idea, opinion from making a decision. In this case, HR is like an Achievement oriented Leaders.

The path goal theory is based on leader's behavior that best fits the employees and work environment for achieve the goal.
So in this case for reduce the anxiety level among the employees at the time of merger first manager have to properly define the roles and responsibilities and what they have to achieve , motivate the employees of both the companies toward their goal, Provide proper direction by training and coaching for achieve their goals, Recognize their work that they done in the organisation, give them reward and future benefits so they will be motivated and satisfied.

The path goal theory has a goal to increase employees motivation and satisfaction so they become a productive member of the organisation.

So whenever the companies are going to merge they donít have to concentrate much on employees side and they can use that efforts into creating the policies and plans foe achievements of strategic goals of the organisation.

In this case at the time of Merger the organization should have the clear picture of the goals, so that the manager can know what is to be attain. So the direction of roles and responsibilities becomes smooth and according to the planning to the employees. Rewards and other benefits should be there with the assign roles so that, there is motivation in the organization. So, it is appropriate to use Path goal strategy to reduce the anxiety level.
