Synopsis

THE TOUGHEST JOB THE BOSS WILL EVER DO IS YOURS...

Chief Executives from ten of Canada’s biggest corporations stealthily join the ranks of their own unsuspecting workforce in this hotly anticipated series.

From major world recognised brands – from Molson to Pizza via the Toronto Transit Commission and FedEx, prominent execs go incognito – disguised and armed with a back story – into the frontline. Working alongside employees, each boss discovers the unsung heroes and learn the effects of their boardroom decisions on others – the perception of the company and importantly – how to apply what they’ve learnt to benefit the company AND employees.

Based on an original format from Studio Lambert, creator of Wife Swap and The Secret Millionaire
