Administrative Professionals Day is a celebration of the great people who help us do our jobs each and every day. A small token of appreciation on this designated week could truly mean the world to your fellow worker(s). These 3 ways are sure to make them smile.

  1. Plan a thoughtful card message. Yeah, you could write ” Happy Admin Day, thanks for all you do.” BUT does that really mean anything? Will front desk Susan really know that her work was recognized or will she think you left a card because you heard it on the radio when driving to work this morning.
  2. A small flower or plant arrangement. This will really show Susan that you took an extra step in making her day brighter. They can leave at the office or even take home to show off to their family what a great boss they have.
  3. Who doesn’t like to eat? Taking your special co-worker out to lunch is a great idea. All parties involved can spend relaxed time together with people they normally only interact with in a serious business matter.

No matter what the actual gift is, the most appreciated gifts are thoughtful ones. So, pay attention to the people you work with and show them that they are more than just an employee. Perhaps the perfect gift is a sappy romance novel you know they would enjoy. Personal gifts are the best way to show you truly are grateful for their work.

Administrative Professionals Day is a holiday that every workplace should participate in.
