Every April, companies around the country recognize their secretaries, receptionists, bookkeepers, customer liaisons, office managers, and other professionals by celebrating Administrative Professionals Week. The observance was established in the 1950s – although, at the time, it was known as National Secretary’s Day. The purpose behind the holiday was to acknowledge the skilled yet sometimes unnoticed workers that keep America’s businesses running smoothly every day. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) asserts that these deserving individuals are, in reality, the true backbone of corporate America. To help you thank your administrative professionals for their contributions all year long, Al’s Florist has created a collection of gifts and floral designs sure to make them smile.
Convey your appreciation with desktop designs that may be compact, but that deliver a big impact! For instance, a bud vase filled with either mokara or dendrobium orchids is a perfectly sized gift that looks right at home on a desk – but doesn’t overwhelm the space. Add a little vertical color and fun with a specialty balloon that cheerfully thanks them for all they do.
Studies have shown that when an employee feels that their contribution is valued and appreciated, that they make a better team member. They are more productive, ask for fewer sick and personal days, do more than they are asked, and even have greater loyalty to their place of employment! That is a lot of benefit which can be gleaned from simply expressing your thanks. Need some inspiration? Our Cup of Thanks arrangement not only delivers bright spring s, but the cheerful mug container can be reused for coffee for years to come
Everyone likes to be noticed and recognized. This April, take the time to celebrate some of your most valuable employees, during National Administrative Professionals Week. In Hollywood, there is no better place to call than Al’s Florist – after all, we truly appreciate a job well done!
