Bosses Day

Bosses Day – Who are the best bosses who inspire their employees to throw them a party on Bosses Day? What makes a great boss?

Bosses Day is coming up and yesterday a woman called Wisconsinmade.com to order gourmet food for her bosses. She had just ordered on-line a large party basket and a large gift box of elk and buffalo summer sausage. Now she called back to add organic crackers to her order. I didn’t know all this party food was going to her bosses until we were finishing her order and she dictated her gift message, “To Shannon and Mark, You’re The Best!” from “Your Employees”.

So this is sweet, I cynically mused. This office is throwing an office party under the ruse of Bosses Day. How could any boss refuse a company party when the boss is the guest of honor? Crafty employees. I anticipated typing in the company’s credit card number to pay for all this gourmet food.

But I didn’t get a company credit card number. The credit card was a personal one. Then I realized that the woman ordering the gifts was 1000 miles away from the bosses. If the bosses threw a party for bosses day, she wasn’t going to be there. Were these other appreciative employees also 1000 miles away?

I began to wonder, who are Shannon and Mark, – these best bosses? They must be incredible people to inspire such warm feelings in the people who work for them. What makes these people the best bosses on Bosses Day? Keep reading.

Wisconsinmade.com Post-Season Party Raises Spirits When Green Bay Packers Fumble

How to find comfort when the Arizona Cardinals bump the Green Bay Packers out of the play-offs: gather with good friends to eat fine food. That’s what we who are Wisconsinmade.com did last evening at the home of Linda Remeschatis, founder of our 10-year-old Internet company. The party was a celebration of the hard work we all did to get gourmet Wisconsin foods, books, art, music, crafts, and Wisconsin clothing to people across the country who value the high-quality products created by Wisconsin artisans. 

Even though initially planned as a post-holiday season, company party, the party fell on a Packer Sunday, so in true Wisconsin-fashion when we entered the house Sunday afternoon, we took our seats in front of the TV. Ready to recreate with beer, wine and pickled herring rollmops, we fixed our eyes on our team. Not all of us were true Packers fans, however. An Illinois-transplant was present; he’s the spouse of one of our newest, prized Wisconsinmade.com co-workers. He’s a die-hard Bears fan and initially stood uncommitted to either Packers or Cardinals. But our pro-Packers exuberance rubbed off on him so that at the game’s final heart-breaking fumble, he too felt our pain. 

I’ll tell you now, it’s a good thing we had all that great, gourmet, Wisconsin food to eat. It was prepared by the Wisconsin artisans with whom we partner. The smoked pheasant, duck, and salmon raised our spirits despite the Cardinals’ repeated scoring. We savored the Wisconsin, artisanal cheeses, summer sausages, creamed herring, and cranberry chutney delivered to our tongues on Potter’s amazing organic crackers. We dined on salads, party meatballs, and shrimp. With such a scrumptious spread, nobody could get too down about the fate of our Green Bay Packers. Yes, it was the great food and fine company which kept our spirits high during that roller-coaster of a football game.
