Happy National Boss's Day to our amazing leader! Chief Gerke goes above and beyond for our community, officers and civilian employees here at OPD. Chief, we know how lucky we are to have you and don't take it for granted!
Nationaltoday.com put a great perspective on this day:
"While it may seem like a lavish position to some, it’s not easy being a boss. It’s certainly not just giving orders and relaxing. The operations of an entire business or department are shouldered by dedicated bosses, who ensure a smooth flow of work, handling major concerns of employees, and achieving the required goal of the organization. Bosses can make or break the entire workplace, and not just from a business perspective. A boss’s managerial style and attitude impacts the work environment and morale of employees. Fair and kind bosses make work-life balance easy, and some even assist in navigating and paving career paths. This is exactly why National Boss Day was created — to express gratitude to all great bosses, and appreciate all they do to make work a collaborative effort and a success."
