April 22nd 26th is Administrative Professionals Week, also known as Secretaries Week, Administrative Assistants Week or Administrative Professionals Week. The official Administrative Professionals Day is Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
It's a time to celebrate these people, these pillars of our businesses, who are so important and do a tremendous amount of work every day. Here are some inspirations for simple things you can do to honor them during this very special week!
- BRIGHTEN UP THEIR OFFICE
At the very beginning of Administrative Assistant week, brighten up their workspace by placing a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers on their desk. Daisies, tulips and orchids are popular at this time of year. Arranged in a small vase, they take up very little space but are a thoughtful gesture that symbolizes our appreciation. Also consider incorporating an object that will stay with the flower arrangement. Water bottle, eco-friendly snack bag, tea pitcher or glass tea bottle.
We have a wide selection of eco-friendly products from the latest arrivals in the store. To help you make a choice, we have provided a full section of ideas on our online store. Our fast and professional delivery service will save you any travel.
- ENJOY THEM!
The gourmet products are inevitably appreciated, so offer your secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists and other professionals in your company delicious treats: fine chocolates, popcorn, sweet and/or savory treats, meringues, specialized teas, etc. Your team is large and you are afraid to forget someone? Have a gourmet basket prepared to share and place on the table in the dining room. Again, you can plan ahead and let our delivery team bring it all to you.
- SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME WITH THEM!
If you want to spend some time with them during the Administrative Assistant week without necessarily going beyond office hours, consider having a personalized lunch prepared to share with them at lunchtime. Our lunch box service including sandwiches & salads is specially designed for this purpose. The lunch boxes will be delivered directly to your office. Nothing could be easier!
- JUST SAY THANK YOU
Although it is a habit that should be present on a daily basis, as an employer, it is important to take the time to say "Thank you", for a job done on time, for an initiative, for an end of season sprint... Simply say thank you. Take advantage of this Administrative Assistant Week to make small gestures of appreciation. Sometimes it doesn't take much to express appreciation. So this Administrative Assistants' Week, say THANK YOU WITH FLOWERS!
