Boss’s Day had been invented by Patricia Bays Haroski. She was working for State Farm, an US-American insurance company in Deerfield, Illinois. Her boss was her own father, which is the reason why she learned about the troubles a leading position comes along with. To express her appreciation towards her father, whom she considered to be an excellent boss she initiated Boss’s Day and register in 1958 at the chamber of commerce. Additionally she hoped for a better relationship between employers and employees. For the date she chose the birthday of her father. In 1962 Otto Kerner, governor of Illinois supported Boss’s Day officially and helped to make it famous in the USA so it could spread all over the planet the following years.
