October 17th marks the annual celebration of Boss’s Day. Several different countries around the world take part in celebrating bosses. Back in the fifties, a woman working for her father registered this day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to make it a national holiday. She believed that taking one day a year to show appreciation for bosses and all of the hard work they put in at the workplace was well-deserved.
Today, this holiday is more representative of strengthening the relationships between employers and employees. Having a good or bad boss can truly make or break your work experience on a daily basis. When one stops to think of the pressures of everyday life on top of managing stores, businesses, or companies that bosses consistently face, they begin to realize just how big of toll it takes on a person. Boss’s Day is the perfect excuse for an employee to express a little bit of gratitude, a simple “Thank you” suffices!
