Happy National Boss Day!

Want to earn bonus points with your managers? Shower them with holiday greetings for National Boss Day, a worldwide celebration of leadership and management. That encompasses quite a chunk of people. In the U.S. alone, more than 14 million individuals are employed in management occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Now for some history. National Boss Day has been celebrated every October 16 since 1958, when State Farm Insurance employee Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

She chose this date—her father's birthday—to honor his record as an exemplary boss. Since then, National Boss Day has expanded internationally to include England, Australia and South Africa.

It should come as no surprise that positive relationships between supervisors and employees directly contribute to job satisfaction. So take this opportunity to go above and beyond, and observe the holiday by getting your manager a greeting card, gift or small token of appreciation. Your gesture could have a big effect! J
