Episode 55 of Live

You’re working for a publisher and suddenly the company is sold to new owners, and your job may be at risk. But the whole process isn’t sudden – the process has taken months to negotiate and there were probably lots of warning signs, yet you still didn’t see the sale coming, as you weren’t sure what signs to look for.

What are the indications that the publisher or imprint you work for may be up for sale? Is it the secret meetings outside the office? The impromptu visit by the Landlord? Or the Finance team looking increasingly stressed? This episode of Live looks at the many warning signs and indications that changes are afoot and your employer may have the company up for sale or be seeking new investment.
