They're the boss, but you should be thanking them: Here's why


Boss’s Day is just around the corner!

Tuesday, October 16th is the one day a year dedicated to showing the boss your appreciation for their guidance and wisdom. (Although, you probably should be doing that all year 'round.)

It all started back in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski registered the holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce. She hoped this day would strengthen the relationships held between employees and their supervisors. Low and behold it’s 2018 and the holiday stuck! Thanks, Patricia for being a #boss.

We know it can be pretty difficult to find the right words to tell your boss how much you appreciate them.

Here are 30 writing prompts to ensure that your Boss’s Day card is one for the books:
