Below are suggestions for communicating the results from the BossRater.com questionnaire.
Dissemination of scores from a group rating is at the discretion of the person(s) arranging the evaluation.
- If you think your boss will genuinely welcome the feedback or you don't
care about losing your job if s/he reacts negatively, print the completed
BossRater.com questionnaire and give it to him or her.
- If you believe your boss will be vindictive, send him or her the completed
questionnaire anonymously. Remember, though, if your department or company
is small, s/he might be able to guess your identity, especially if you've
been branded a malcontent.
- For accountability purposes, you also should give a copy of the completed
questionnaire to your boss' supervisor and the human resources department.
You can do this openly or anonymously, depending on how you think they
will react to the feedback.
- 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, using BossRater.com. 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.
IMPORTANT! What you write in the Comments section could reveal your
identity. Thus, if you want to remain anonymous, choose your words carefully,
or don't write anything. Similarly, if you're concerned your boss might
guess your identity even if you don't write comments, play it safe. Don't send
him/her the results. Also, be careful to avoid breaking any libel laws that might apply.
