Good or Bad–Happy Boss’s Day! — Dave’s Diary

Hello to all the bosses out there on this National Boss’s Day! Feel free to take the day off!  I’ve worked for some bad bosses and some really good bosses—like my current boss.  I’ve also been the boss and I’m sure there would be some employees who thought I was good boss and others who think I was a bad boss but of course those employees would be wrong and deserve to be fired.  Kidding. Sort of.



day began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, then an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, IL, registered the holiday with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She chose October 16, her father’s birthday, as the date for National Boss Day because she felt he was an exemplary boss.

Here are some facts:

  • According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of May 2012, nearly 6.4 million people work in managerial roles
  • Workplace surveys confirm that one of the most important elements of job satisfaction is a positive relationship between a supervisor and employee.
  • Although National Boss Day began in 1958, Hallmark first produced Boss Day cards in 1979.
