While the process of selling a company is mostly between the buyer and seller, most people forget that it also greatly affects the people on the front lines of running a business: the employees.

We’ve covered why we decided to sell ColorIt in the first place, how we prepared for the sale, and how the transaction transpired.

In this episode, which is the 4th and last installment of the ColorIt series, we bring our Filipino employees working on ColorIt to the limelight to talk about how they felt about the sale, how they dealt with the transition, and the aftermath of the deal that is going to transfer them over to another company.

Also joining us in this episode is Nirav, the co-founder of the company that is going to run ColorIt moving forward.

You’ll learn:

  • How Filipino employees react when they learn the company they’re working for is being sold
  • Making sure you’re not uprooting your employees’ lives in the event of a sale
  • How our manager handled the transition and kept morale high
  • What we’re doing to keep employees motivated under the new owner

Thanks for listening to this episode! Until the next one, happy selling.
