History of Bosses Day

History of Bosses Day

Ever wonder how National Boss’s day got started? Was it some boss who felt like they weren’t getting enough appreciation every day? Actually the history of bosses’ day is quite recent. Bosses’ day came about over 40 years ago; in 1958 in Illinois. Historians say a secretary by the name of Patricia Bays Haroski was the first person to want to honor her boss. You might think that Ms. Haroski was perhaps looking for a raise or promotion by starting the first annual bosses day. No, it was because she was very attached to her boss – he was her father! She chose the day October 16th because that was her father’s birthday. She promoted the idea and eventually it grew in popularity. Although it is not an officially recognized holiday, bosses day is a great opportunity to show your boss that he or she is doing a great job and you appreciate them! A simple card or very small gift is appropriate, better yet, take up a collection with coworkers and send your boss a gift basket on October 16th. Who knows, perhaps you will be the one that gets the raise or promotion!
