Boss’s Day

Although many people may think that Boss’s Day was created by the greeting card industry, it was actually started by a secretary back in 1958. Patricia Bays Haroski initially registered “National Boss’ Day” with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to show appreciation for her boss because she thought he deserved it. Another interesting fact, Boss’s Day is observed on October 16 because that is the birthday of Patricia’s father! (I wonder if he was actually her Boss).  Finally, Haroski thought Boss’s Day was a worthwhile idea because it could help promote office culture.

Why Celebrate Boss’s Day?
Does your Boss deserve recognition too?  In the corporate industry in South Africa we are very keen on growing, supporting, recognising and mentoring our staff members, however what we seem to have forgotten is that Bosses appreciate positive recognition just as much as anyone else. If your boss goes above and beyond, they deserve to be recognized too (just like you)! Think of everything you’ve learned from your boss. Whether it’s their knowledge of the business, tips on how to assimilate into the office culture, or how to progress and grow in your role. Bosses, while doing all of this, still have to bear the brunt of paying for all and any mistakes we may make.


Team Together

Use Boss’s Day as an opportunity to gather your co-workers to plan how you’ll celebrate the occasion. Whether you decide to throw a party, give your boss a gift, or handwrite a personalized note, this is a great time to get everyone together to showcase your gratitude and appreciation. At The Chocolate Tier, we encourage celebrating everyday occasions, so Boss’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to turn an individual event into a team building activity!

Company-wide celebrations are a great opportunity to get everyone together in one place, and where each team member can really get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. This builds a sense of togetherness and relationships that’ll drive success. Trust, loyalty, honesty, and integrity are all core characteristics exhibited by successful teams. Company-wide celebrations offer the perfect environment for these characteristics to grow!

Why Boss’s Day matters…
A unique gift appeals to the varying sensibilities of your boss. For example, our Ultimate Treat hamper, shows how your boss sets the enjoyable mood in the office.  This Hamper includes plenty of chocolate and chocolate covered goodies!

However, you decide to celebrate the day, simply acknowledging the efforts of your boss will go a long way! Need some inspiration for what to get your boss this year? Look no further! Take a look at our awesome Bosses Day Collection and WOW them with a gift that will definitely leave them smiling.
