National Boss’s Day is right around the corner—Friday, October 16 to be exact. In case you didn’t know, Boss’s Day was started back in the late 1950s when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the US Chamber of Commerce. Patricia, who was an employee of State Farm Insurance Company at the time, wanted to show appreciation for her boss and other bosses.
The idea behind having such a holiday is to show your appreciation and respect for the dedication and hard work of your supervisor. But that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank in order to do so. You and your co-workers could all chip in to send a small bouquet of flowers and some balloons; or maybe you can organize a potluck in your boss’s honor; or simply send a nice card that the team has signed. The point is you can genuinely show your supervisor that you appreciate his or her efforts without blowing your budget.
And to all you bosses out there—Happy Boss’s Day! We appreciate you!!
