When is Boss day?

Boss Day is celebrated in the UK on 24th March and in the USA on 16th October each year.

Boss Appreciation Day

Boss appreciation day dates back to 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Ill., registered the holiday with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States.

She chose October 16th because it was her father's birthday. The purpose of the day was to show appreciation for her boss and other bosses.

Thank You To Your Boss

Sending or giving a thank you note or boss day greeting card is the most popular way of thanking the boss. You may also like to include a gift of chocolates, a book or a small gift basket. Obviously it depends on how familiar you are with your boss as to the wording you write.

Dear Mr Andrews

I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for all the support and encouragement you have given me in the last year.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr White,

Well, here we are nicely settled in Spartanburg and I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you for making it happen. Julie and I still have to pinch ourselves to make sure that we aren't dreaming. The children both love their new school and are making new friends fast.

I am also getting to grips with the American life, and way of working. I couldn't have asked for nicer colleagues who have gone out of their way to make the transition process so smooth.

Thank you, once again, Mr White for your support and backing. I really appreciate everything you have done for my family.

With kind regards,

Dear Mr Jones,

I would like to take this opportunity, on National Boss Day, to say thank you for being such a great supervisor.  I have never been part of such an open and motivated team before and I am thankful to be part of it. Enjoy Bosses day!
