Send flowers on Administrative Professionals' Day (also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day). It is celebrated on Wednesday April 24, 2013.
Send a gorgeous bouquet to your secretary, administrative assistants, receptionists, other administrative and executive support professionals to remind them that you are fully aware that you couldn't do it without them! To really show how much you appreciate all their hard work, you could also treat them to a lunch at a nice restaurant, and/or some time off.
Show your appreciation with flowers on Admin Professionals Day
Long gone are the days of the 1960 secretary "straight out of Miss Something secretarial school," as portrayed by Elizabeth Moss' character, Peggy Olson in the television series Mad Men. International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) created National Secretaries Week with two objectives in mind: "to recognize the secretary, upon whose skills, loyalty, and efficiency the functions of business and government offices depend," and to call attention "through favorable publicity, to the tremendous potential of the secretarial career.
During Administative Professionals Week, decorate their cubicle or office with flowers
In 1981 National Secretaries Week name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week, and became Administrative Professionals Week in 2000 to encompass the expanding responsibilities and wide-ranging job titles of administrative support staff. The IAAP suggests that employers support the holiday by providing training opportunities for their administrative staff through continuing education, self-study materials, or seminars. Of course, here at
Teleflora we think that you should decorate his/her desk, cubicle or office with flowers or a plant!
