Why we celebrate Boss Day?

Bosses are usually the subject of ire and complaint. We all know that expressing appreciation for a job can go a long way in cementing professional relationships and improving long-term career prospects. Similarly appreciating our bosses when done in appropriate context also can set one apart as a gracious individual.

Hence, this one day gives us the chance to thank them for their support, guidance,encouragement and opportunities.

Boss Day, also known as National Boss Day or Bosses Day is not a typical floating holiday, in that it almost always falls on October 16. If it falls on a weekend, it will fall on the closest business day to October 16.The origin of Boss day can be traced back to 1958 when Patricia Haroski, a secretary from Deerfield, Illinois, originated National Boss in honour of her white-collar father, who helped all of his children with good advice throughout their careers.In honour of the elder Haroski's birthday - October 16 - daughter Patricia registered the day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Four years later, National Boss Day was backed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner who officially proclaimed the day in 1962. The idea quickly gained favour across the country and is now celebrated across the globe.

People in several countries of the world thank their bosses for doing a good job. Often times, this might include the giving them cards, small gifts and a token of appreciation. As a good boss often helps, supports and promote their employees' career paths, it can be an opportunity for employees to reciprocate and support their bosses. You can use the day as an excuse to take the boss to lunch or bring him/her coffees, to offer help with a stressful project, or simply to express appreciation for the hard work and encouragement.

So remember Boss Day and let your boss know that you value him/her and understand that being the boss isn't always easy.
