The idea for National Boss’s Day originated in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company, registered the holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce. She imagined the purpose to be both to show appreciation for her boss, and to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors overall. Four years later – in her home state of Illinois – Governor Otto Kerner confirmed Haroski’s registration and officially established the holiday. The event’s popularity is currently growing outside the United States and is observed in Australia, India, and South Africa.
Zeidler’s Flowers has some great ideas to show your boss your appreciation. Perhaps you want to thank him for always taking care of the team. Maybe you want to thank her for helping you to move forward in your career. Whatever your boss has done to make your work environment a better place, October 17th is the day to say thank you!
Quick Fact – October 16th is the official date for Boss’s Day, but if it falls on a weekend, as it does this year, the holiday is celebrated on the closest workday.
