Your boss rates your performance. Now you can rate theirs, publicly. The ultimate reality show. You have heard about Rate Your Teacher and Rate Your Service Person, now you can use Rate Your Boss as well.

Fifty percent of staff say they leave or change jobs because of their boss. This is a huge cost to any organisation. Recruiting and appointing new staff can cost anywhere to between half to one years full salary before the new person is up to speed. This is over and above normal expenditure costs.

If you think your boss will genuinely welcome the feedback or you don't care about losing your job if they react negatively, the ratings and comments section can be printed and given to him or her.

If you believe your boss will be vindictive, send him or her the link to the site anonymously. Remember, though, if your department or company is small, they might be able to guess your identity, especially if you've been branded a malcontent.

Another way to get the feedback to your boss, and this might be the best approach, is to suggest to the human resources department that your supervisor be evaluated by all subordinates. That way your evaluation won't be the only one. Of course, if you're in a small department, your anonymity still could be jeopardized.
