HR Strange But True!
March 04, 2005

Canadian Gary Lahey has launched a website,, that enables people to give their bosses some constructive criticism, free and anonymously.

The Dallas Morning News reports that visitors to the site can send their bosses e-mail brochures with such titles as "Bullied Workers Suffer Battle Stress" and "How to Spot a Bad Boss."

In all cases, senders can see the content of the e-mail that will be sent, and the recipient doesn't know who initiated the message, according to the Morning News.

"About 40 percent of people at one time or another have had to deal with a difficult boss," Lahey told the newspaper. "We just thought this was a good opportunity for organizations and people to be aware of key resources."

Lahey stressed, however, that the site is not for boss bashing. Rather, it's designed to help management and underlings see the value of an engaging a boss on his or her destructive behavior.

"Bosses are often juggling numerous and sometimes intense stressors themselves--some we are aware of and often many we are not," he said.
