Nominations sought for best boss in North Tahoe-Truckee

TRUCKEE, Calif. — What makes your boss a great leader? Motivation and inspiration? Breakfast bagels? A day off for your birthday?

Last year on National Boss Day, The Office BOSS in Truckee created a way to acknowledge exceptional local bosses by sponsoring a Best Boss competition.

“The reaction was so overwhelmingly positive that we knew we had to do it again,” said Carrie Ridgel, one of the owners at The Office BOSS. “There are many leaders worthy of recognition in the area.”

During the month of September, The Office BOSS is accepting nominations for this year’s award in the second annual Best Boss competition.

Send an email to explaining why your boss is the best. This is a meaningful way to show appreciation for a boss who makes your work-life something to cheer about.

In early October, a panel of community leaders will review nominations and select the winner and runners-up. The winners will be announced at a special wine-and-cheese reception on Thursday, Oct. 15, at The Office BOSS Mail Center at 11260 Donner Pass Road in Truckee.

The winner will receive a free lunch for his or her office (up to 6 people) at Thai Delicacy in Truckee, and runners-up will receive gift bags.

“We are excited to be hosting this contest again,” event coordinator Brian Shepp explained. “Everyone was so happy to participate last year, and it was great to read so many inspirational nominations.”

National Boss Day, on October 16, has been around since 1958. While the holiday started in the U.S., it is now recognized internationally as a day to show appreciation to your boss. Since 1979, Hallmark has made Boss Day cards.
