The third Friday of August is “Hug Your Boss Day.” The aim of “National Hug Your Boss Day” is to highlight unhealthy or less than satisfying issues in the workplace and help those who may be unhappy and unmotivated in the workplace.
What could you do to highlight Hug Your Boss Day (without getting into a sexual harrasement suit)?
Check out these world record hugs:
* Longest hug recorded was by Ron O’Neil and Theresa Kerr @ 24 hours and 33 minutes
* Largest group hug was with 10,554 people on May 7. 2010 in Ontario, Canada
* The most hugs given in 24 hours is 8,709 and was achieved by Jonathan Sexton (USA) at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, USA, on 11 June 2010.
The attempt raised money for United Way’s “Restore the Dream” fund, which aided individuals attempted by flooding in Nashville. (source: Guinness Book of World Records)
