Happy Boss's Day!
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank our bosses, encourage our future bosses and share a little history about this National Holiday Day.
Patricia Bays Haroski registered "National Boss' Day" with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958. She was working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois, at the time and chose October 16, which was her father's birthday. She was working for her father at the time. The purpose of designating a special day in the workplace is to show the appreciation for her bosses she thought they deserved. This was also a strategy to attempt to improve inner-work relationships between the high-ups and the employees. Haroski believed that young employees sometimes did not understand the hard work and dedication that their supervisors put into their work and the challenges they faced to do so. Four years later, in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski's registration and officially proclaimed the day.
National Boss's Day has become an international celebration in recent years and now is observed in countries such as Australia, India, Ireland, and Egypt. Note that Egypt celebrates their equivalent holiday on 10 December every year.
It's nice to get a little history on our Holidays; hope you enjoyed the read...
