Channel Nine has announced a new format to be produced by Shine Australia, The Boss Is Coming To Dinner.
The Boss Is Coming To Dinner is a classic nightmare scenario – inviting your boss to dinner. In the past, entertaining your superiors was always considered an essential part of business practice. Now it’s being used by enterprising companies to transform the interview process.
In each episode three candidates seeking a new career opportunity host a dinner party for their potential employers in their own homes. After each dinner the boss will then invite two preferred candidates home for dinner and the final judgment.
Nine Programmer Michael Healy said, “We look forward to working with the team at Shine Australia on this new format which takes that often dreaded situation of having your boss to dinner and adds a twist – bosses of real companies and real people dining together in one of the most stressful times of their lives.”
Shine Australia CEO Mark Fennessy added: “It is said that the majority of people are hired for skills and fired for personality. In this truly compelling and engaging show we cover both. It’s the ultimate nightmare interview – inviting your boss to dinner.”
Shine Australia is also producing new projects for SBS and later, TEN.
