It is estimated that we spend between 25% and 35% of love’s waking hours working. With such a large portion of our existence involving the workplace, it is easy to see why a great boss can make such a huge difference. In 1958, Chicago State Farm Insurance employee Patricia Bays Haroski was so inspired by her boss that she petitioned the government to set aside October 16 (her dad’s birthday) as a day to recognize supervisors and employers who were doing a great job; in 1962, Illinois governor Otto Kerner made it official.
At Blossom Flower Shops, we help you year-round in recognizing amazing people from Yonkers to White Plains. On National Boss’s Day, we are here to help you to thank those leaders who make work a great place to be.
Orchids are a great addition to an office environment, as they add grace and stylish sophistication. Your boss will love this thoughtful gift that blends perfectly in with the professional atmosphere they have worked so hard to create. Green plants are also an excellent choice, as they are long-lasting and ideal decor no matter your environment. We love the jade plant, shown below, which symbolizes wealth, prosperity, and good luck – appropriate for any business!
If your boss creates a positive and creative environment, or if they have an uncanny ability to calm everyone down – how about getting together with your team and giving him or her this unique display we call Zenquility? Tell your boss that you appreciate his hard work and dedication, or her commitment and passion. These beautiful cymbidium orchids in a tranquil cylindrical vase will blend into any decor.
Let’s face it, we have to work. National Boss’s Day gives us the opportunity to thank the leaders, supervisors, and employers who make going to work fun. On October 16 and every day throughout the year, Blossom Flower Shops are happy to help you convey your sentiments beautifully!
