Tips for Wishing Happy Birthday to Your Boss

You shouldn’t have.. Seriously. I don’t like chocolate.

One of the advantage to celebrating a bosses birthday: You’re getting paid for it. But you need to make sure that you find the right kind of birthday greeting for your individual boss, based on who they are and how they might react. Some will welcome the attention others not so much. You know your boss well enough to know what kind of boss they are, right?

Make sure that the greeting is appropriate. Formal greetings are always acceptable and can be a great way to let your boss know that they are valued and respected. Keep things short and sweet. They’ve probably got work to complete as well. A 2 – 4 sentence message recognizing the date is sufficient.

Try to gauge how your boss might handle a funny greeting. Not every boss will get the joke, let alone laugh along with it. Even managers can struggle with how to handle these social situations. Rude or inappropriate joke greetings are often not acceptable. Stay away from innuendos and keep things respectful.
