A boss is someone in a position of power. If you’ve ever been employed, I’m sure you encountered a boss as you had to report to them. Boss voices are usually confident and final. Boss voices help set targets for teams so that projects go as planned. When seeking voice talent, ensure that you look for a person with a bold and audible voice. After all, a boss should never have to repeat themselves.
Have you ever encountered a nagging boss? Most of the time, some bosses have no idea what goes into a project. That is why they’re always demanding for employees to deliver. A good boss would be one that leads by example, not a person who dumps all the heavy lifting on his or her team. When recording boss voices, you need to be clear about the kind of boss you want to depict. The message you want to communicate and the kind of project you’re working on will help you decide.
An ideal audience for boss voices would be people who have encountered bosses before. You can use such a voice-over to announce for openings at your company. Voice-overs can also help you show potential applicants the kind of employee you’re looking for in the open position. Boss voices can also be used to address the challenges employees go through in their workplaces.
The nature of the project determines the characterization of boss voices. You can have an angry boss, a demanding boss, an understanding boss, an annoying boss, and so on.
