Today is World Boss’ Day

Today is World Boss Day, set aside for employees to “recognize those in supervisory positions. Popular ways to say “thanks” include cards, a lunch in the boss’s honor, flowers, or gift certificates,” according to Wikipedia.

Boss Day is a secular holiday celebrated on October 16 and has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year.

“It was started in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, then an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Ill., registered the holiday with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. She designated October 16 as the special day because it was her father’s birthday.

“Ms. Haroski’s purpose was to designate a day to show appreciation for her boss and other bosses. She also hoped to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors. She believed young employees often do not realize the challenges bosses face in running a business.

“National Boss’s Day has become an international celebration in recent years and now is observed in countries such as Australia, India, South Africa, Ireland, the UK, and Egypt. Note that Egypt celebrates their equivalent holiday on 10 December every year,” says Wikipedia.
