National Bosses Day is Oct 16th
Please…..isn’t that just another made up holiday to sell greeting card? Nope!
Turns out the idea of creating a dedicated day to show appreciation for your boss originated in 1958, when a secretary at a State Farm Agency felt her fellow peers didn’t appreciate the efforts of their supervisors. She thought that creating a day honoring bosses would improve intra-office relationships between mangers and employees. In truth, National Bosses day didn’t hit the greeting card market until 1978.
But do bosses really want a gift or recognition on this day?
Most say they really don’t want a gift, preferring a simple note of appreciation for something they did that was inspiring or motivating. Even more say the love getting FOOD for National Bosses Day. Bring them a fancy coffee. Fill their drawers with Candy. Take them to Ori’Zaba’s for lunch! Bring Ori’Zaba’s catering back to the office. OR buy them an Ori’Zaba’s gift card! Trust us – you’ll look like a hero!
For those of you lucky enough to have boss with a great sense of humor, a prank is always in order for National Bosses day.
