National Hug Your Boss Day is an annual observance celebrated on September 13th of this year. Any working person’s life will be spent in the office. The boss is the person who manages and looks after each employee’s needs. National Hug Your Boss Day is to be celebrated worldwide to promote healthy working relationships between the boss and employees. The day assists those who are in need of help to better their relationships with their colleagues and managers.
“More than half of people who leave their jobs do so because of their relationship with their boss. Smart companies make certain their managers know how to balance being professional with being human. These are the bosses who celebrate an employee’s success, empathize with those going through hard times, and challenge people, even when it hurts.” – Travis Bradberry
History of National Hug Your Boss Day
TipTopJob.com established the National Hug Your Boss Day in the year 2008. The celebration is designed with the purpose of creating improved workplace relationships. The organization believes that if an employee is happy to hug his/her boss, then they are more than likely enjoying their job. It is a form of morale or motivation which increases the productivity of the firm. It is not always the case, and it is a fun activity. When a bond is stronger, then the relationship is likely to hold for a longer time, and this holds true for a boss-worker relationship, too. Imagine how grateful you are when your boss approves your sick leave and promotes you to the next higher level.
The boss is the one who works all day to ensure that his workers are enduring a positive experience. Have you ever thought that you are grateful for having such an engaging boss? If your answer is yes, then why not a day for your lovely boss? Hug Your Boss Day is the special day that invites you to brighten up your boss’s day. It is also a day for you to show your love and care for the human who treats you equally as a human. Several other factors also determine National Hug Your Boss Day as it may include one’s personal feelings. It may depend on the prominence in which you see your bosses, or whether you are working for a small or large firm, and the term of your office in that company.
