Administrative Professionals Day is a great opportunity to recognize the many contributions of the secretaries, receptionists and administrative assistants within your organization. This year, Administrative Professionals Day is celebrated on Wednesday, April 26.
Here are a few ways you can say “thank you”:
Buy them lunch. Take an hour out of your day and treat your admins to lunch. Spending this time with them can help boost your relationship and show them how much you appreciate their work.
Write them a card. Write a thank-you card to express how much you appreciate all that they do for the organization. And yes, write a physical card instead of an email – they get enough of those throughout the day!
Send them a gift. Whether it’s flowers, a new notebook, a new planner or office apparel, sending your admins a gift will show them how thankful you are to have them around. Even better, attach a card with a personalized message to the gift. This is sure to make them smile.
Give them time off. Your administrative professionals work hard to keep your office running smoothly. Consider letting them have an afternoon off to relax and rejuvenate. They will definitely thank you for this.
