Large Programme Image


“I’ve never worked as hard or learnt as much about my own company. I’ve been exhausted, exhilarated, surprised and humbled,” says one of the bosses in this new factual format from Studio Lambert. Normally surrounded by spreadsheets and immersed in high level board meetings, this boss found himself cleaning toilets, working as a waiter, dealing with irate customers, unblocking drains and doing late shifts in the kitchens. In each episode of this dramatic and entertaining format, we challenge a boss to go on a voyage of discovery into their own company. Their aim is to discover what''''s not working in the business. But whilst they’re rooting out problems, they’re also looking to find and reward hidden talent among their employees. The boss is going to be surprising the company’s unsung hero’s with pay rises, training, promotions – and life changing rewards.
