In 1958, a woman named Patricia Bays Haroski had an idea. As an employee at Chicago-based State Farm Insurance, she thought that a day set aside to enhance and encourage positive employee/employer relationships could create a more positive workplace overall. Four years after proposing her idea to the Illinois government, governor Otto Kerner made the observance official. Although the day was never made a federal holiday, it is recognized across the country, as well as in South Africa, India and Australia.

Having a great boss to report to can make life a much more pleasant experience – after all, we spend nearly one-third of our waking hours working. What are the characteristics of a great boss? Experts tell us that although there are many types and personalities, they all share a few traits. For instance, a successful leader will take complete responsibility for everything that happens in their department, but will deflect praise and credit to his people.
Gift Idea: The Sunburst Cube, shown above, combines vibrant tulips, roses, hydrangeas, and lilies – and is the perfect addiction for any professional office ambiance.
Another characteristics of a great supervisor is that they will encourage ongoing learning and identify ways for their employees to progress up the ranks of the organization. They are successful not because of their title, but because their people trust and respect their judgement and authority.
