Friendly Birthday Wishes for Boss

Birthday Verses and Messages for Boss

Once you get beyond your inner circle of friends and family, birthday wishes can get tricky. This is especially true of birthday wishes for a boss. After all, you want to be polite, but you don’t want to offend. There’s always that inner voice that warns you, “This is your job!” Thankfully, there a few guidelines for sending the right kind of birthday wishes to that valued boss.

Pick the Best Method

When deciding on sending a birthday wish, more and more options pop up every year. You can be traditional with a card or be extra traditional and give a verbal birthday wish. If you won’t see someone face-to-face, a phone call, text e-card message, or email ecard will be an option. For job-related birthdays, a card or verbal greeting is the most common option. In fact, chances are the whole office will volunteer to purchase and sign one card. Make sure to ask around before the big day.

Keep It PG

It may be hilarious to get your friend a scandalous card, but it shouldn’t be an option for your boss. Keep everything inoffensive. This leaves out the jokes that are both rude and crude. However, that doesn’t mean boring. Your boss is, presumably, human and will likely appreciate traditional or subtle humor. Use your best judgement. If you have to worry about whether it’ll lead to a misunderstanding, decide against it.

Be Relevant

Generic birthday wishes show that you will feel left out and rude if you don’t give them something. That’s not bad, but it’s probably not the impression you’re intending to make. So, make the birthday wish relevant to them. What does your boss do? Some will get problems handled quickly or give bonuses every holiday. Others are great leaders or hard workers. Use your bosses real qualities to give them heartfelt birthday greetings. It will make a lot of difference in how genuine they find your consideration.

As an aside, this is one reason it’s good to pay attention to your boss before their birthday. It’s hard to think of genuine wishes thirty seconds before you see them.

Be Discreet

Remember that birthday wishes are not given out of a desire to impress so keep it discreet. Group birthday wishes are done in public. Private ones are done in private. Don’t accost them in the hallway, but do it at a time you won’t be interrupting their job or meetings. E-cards go directly to their email or phone. Verbal or physical wishes go to them without grandstanding to coworkers. This type of giving without expecting praise or attention will be appreciated.

Keep to the tips above, and you’ll find that offering birthday wishes to your boss isn’t something to stress over. In fact, the low-key nature of these type of birthday wishes could make them the easiest ones yet.

Happy Birthday to the one who always runs the show
It’s a thankless job that much we already know
From planning ahead and organizing our big day
So everything goes smooth with no dismay

There are challenges in each and every single career
But I’d never considered that I’d have you here
To be the one who blesses us with strength
So we’ll go the extra mile, go to any length

You are talented and clever, that’s so easy to see
It’s never been hard to follow or believe
The ideals you uphold are to be so admired
I thank the great day you told me I was hired

Every day you make coming into work so much fun
I can always know that I’ll get a job well done
You appreciate the effort, you rarely frown when it’s a mess
You gently say work together and we’ll put it all to rest

The attitude is contagious, the harmony it creates
Between workers and colleagues, I simply must reiterate
That the perfect boss is not the guy who often screams
It’s the one who shows encouragement and shares all of our dreams

You’ve helped me on my bad days when I was so low
You’ve stood right beside me when you should have told me no
You’ve trusted my gut instincts and even bought me lunch
Because you got to know me, not because of just a hunch

I often wondered how my life would have played out
Without working at this job with you here about
I know at times it doesn’t seem like we appreciate
The subtle things you do for us that often turn out great

Happy Birthday boss, I consider you a great friend
From now until I leave this job and until the very end
Friendships come and friendships go and it’s tough to differentiate
But you’ve made it clear that all my work you so appreciate

I couldn’t be more thankful for the kind review
Your gestures of fairness always ring so true
The feedback is instrumental in making me who I am today
Your critiques are so sincere, our friendship never in the way

If I were to be a boss of employees down the road
I’d model myself after you and what I do behold
The way you hold yourself among your fellow peers
Is how I’d like to be as I grow throughout the years

Here’s to the greatest boss that I’ve ever met
It’s because of you, I go to work without a fret
Because of your style the days are never too bad
Thanks to you and happy birthday to the best boss I ever had

Happy Birthday, boss, from all of your team,
because no matter how it might sometimes seem,
when we bicker and quarrel and grumble or fuss,
we thank you for keeping us focused like a laser beam.

So often we talk of losses or profits but today we pause to say
In the midst of reports and projections and meetings, Happiest of Birthdays!

So on your birthday, here us when we say, we want to show that appreciation to you
You treat us so well and our office is swell and we can’t find reason to frown
So on this, your birthday, we hope music will play and you’ll really “get down!”
