Boss's Day History

Boss's Day, also known as National Boss Day, is designed to build positive relationships between employers and their employees. By offering appreciation to the bosses who make decisions and lead a workplace on a daily basis, the observance aims to foster an environment of mutual respect and understanding. Boss's Day serves as a reminder of the importance of leadership, open communication, and collaboration in a professional setting.

The idea of Boss's Day originated in the United States in 1958, when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Patricia chose October 16th to honour her father's birthday, who also happened to be her boss. Though initially observed predominantly in the US, Boss's Day has since expanded to other countries, including Canada. Canadian employees and business professionals have embraced this day, recognizing its value in building a supportive and thriving workplace culture.

In Canada, Boss's Day is typically observed through small acts of appreciation such as exchanging gestures of gratitude, writing thank-you notes, or presenting small tokens of acknowledgment like office accessories or desk ornaments. Some employees may choose to surprise their bosses with a group lunch or treat, while others may prefer a more personalized, one-on-one conversation expressing their gratitude. Boss's Day is acknowledged on October 16th each year, fostering positive working dynamics and relationships across the country.
