5 Last Minute Gift Ideas for Boss’s Day

When it comes to a positive work culture, recognition is key. In fact, according to a recent study by Zippia, 80% of employees say they are motivated to work harder when they are recognized for their work by their superiors. But how about the other way around? Recognition often flows downward in the workplace, with managers and executives acknowledging the efforts of their employees. However, managers and executives benefit from recognition, too – a practice that is seen much more rarely.

When employees are empowered to recognize their direct superiors, the process of recognition becomes cyclical and whole – Managers recognize employees, and employees recognize managers. This makes for an environment of positivity that fosters and fuels work ethic and retention. So how can you start pointing recognition upwards? A great way to start is with a simple “thank you” on Boss’s Day, which is being celebrated on Monday, October 16th this year. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your boss but are in a crunch, fear not! We have plenty of last-minute Boss’s Day gift ideas that are sure to impress.
