History of Boss' Day

The origin of National Boss's Day dates back to 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois, registered it with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Haroski chose the date because it was her father's birthday. Who was her boss? ....her father.

The date of October 16 was chosen, which also happened to be her father's birthday. She was actually working for her father when she made the registration.

Otto Kerner, the Governor of Illinois at the time, made the choice to back Ms. Haroski's registration in 1962. He then proclaimed October 16th to be Boss's Day. The reason to designate this day is to give the bosses of an organization the appreciation that she thought was deserved.

Bosses Day

Sometimes refered to as Bosses Day, this holiday is the one day of the year for them to be recognized for the job they do throughout the year. Many American workers may not know that Bosses Day is October 16th. This is the day workers of any business are able to make an impression on their bosses.

Celebrate Bosses Day on October 16th, 2015 with all your coworkers and all their bosses. Bosses day is that rare chance to do something special for your leader. Leadership gifts are a great way to show your appreciation on Bosses Day.

Boss's Day Gift Ideas

Employees have many options to choose when deciding how to celebrate Boss's Day. One of the better and more personal ways is to write a simple note or offer a boss a card. The basic idea is to thank them for the support and appreciation that is given throughout the year.

Another option is to go in with a group of coworkers to purchase a personalized gift or appreciation gift. There will also be people who may take their boss out to lunch. However, keep in mind any workplace etiquette that may apply.

Why Celebrate Boss's Day

The idea for Boss's Day is also a strategy to help improve the employee-management relationships that exist in an organization. Ms. Haroski believed younger employees often did not understand all the hard work and dedication that their immediate management demonstrated each day. Moreover, she believed workers also need to show their boss or supervisor equal acknowledgment, at least once each year.

Top characteristics of a good boss: Fair, Honest, Understanding, Approachable, A Good Communicator.

Every boss has demonstrated qualities that can be celebrated. These are not as difficult to find when an individual puts in a little thought and effort. Management of an organization will discover they need to praise and recognize employees to help motivate them. A supervisor, manager, and other type of boss will come in all sizes and shapes. They can come across as thoughtful, aggressive, insightful, and quiet.

Many often choose to lead by example and work to create an environment that is friendly and rewards ambition and loyalty. A good boss is a person who may act as a mentor and be there to listen to complaints. Show your appreciation for their leadership, compassion, mentoring and support! Celebrate Boss's Day on October 16th, 2015

Take your boss out to lunch with your co-workers. Splitting the bill among you makes this an affordable activity. Present him with an inspirational gift or a token of appreciation that is work appropriate. The boss's day gift should be something that is both stylish and functional so that it used often and looked upon fondly as a constant reminder of how his or her team appreciates the job he or she is doing.

Perfect gift for employee recognition

I bought 7 of these to recognize a team of staff that worked on a specific project together with a terrific outcome. They donated a great deal of time to the project and this was a small token of recognition that was able to be provided at a large group meeting.
