Further Questions?

Why are you doing this?
Quite simply, because it is needed! As a sports team with a bad manager underperforms, so it is the same with business. When a vast number of businesses across the country contain managers lacking in capability, then the country as a whole will underperform. Those Businesses and Managers who have not yet grasped the importance of Employee Engagement need a wake-up call. We aim to wake them by giving all employees a voice and the information you need to find a manager who appreciates your efforts.

How much does it cost?
Short answer: it is free. The grading of your manager and the generated report is complimentary, dependent upon your full participation in the registration process. We will also provide further deeper analysis which will help you make a more informed decision as to whether you should change jobs or not. If you are serious about your job and career prospects then you can purchase one of our customised in-depth reports.

Will my manager ever get to see my views of them?
No. Your responses to the assessment are personal to you. We will not share them with anyone at anytime.

The Rationale

What is KeepTheBossFireTheBoss.com all about?

We are here to help YOU, to help everyone, whether you are an employee, junior manager, middle manager, senior manager, executive, director....

It's your life, take control of it...
At some point in your working life you may have been given the opportunity to contribute to an employee survey or 360 degree feedback of your manager. If you are also a manager you may have been the recipient of feedback as well as contributing to your own manager's feedback.

These types of surveys should be used to help you feel more engaged with and in control of your working life, to help you feel more a part of the business, and make your working life more fulfilling...

However, some organisations may go through the motions of such surveys, but then fail to take account of the findings. They waste their time and importantly yours too...

There is also a large number of employers who fail to listen to their employees at all, either to their concerns or their creative contribution in terms of new ideas. They view employees as Human Resources rather than Human Beings. If your employer is one of these then you likely feel as though you work in a vacuum, unaware and unknowing if the job and manager you have is the best you can have, either in the same business or in another business.

We all report to someone, and this is where KeepTheBossFireTheBoss.com will help you. We will give you the information you need to determine if your boss is good or bad, whether to keep them or fire them, whether you should stay or leave your current employer and find a new job elsewhere. Importantly we will also tell you where to apply for a job and where vacancies are available, and ideally a position similar to the one you have now. If you have career aspirations, we will guide you on your next steps.
