Recently on social media, a poll was circulated asking administrative professionals to explain some of the parts of their job that they didn’t anticipate and that people may not expect. The results showed that administrative personnel are intimately involved in each and every aspect of a businesses success, including taking on human resource roles, accounting duties – and in some cases, felt like the “company therapist.” It was also noted that over two-thirds of employees at offices believe that administrative professionals are more vital to the overall success of the company than the boss.
As important as these employees every Tucson business, it is only right to acknowledge them. This month, National Administrative Professionals Week is the last week of April, and the day set aside to honor these special employees falls on April 27th. . While not an official holiday, this is a great opportunity to show these professionals just how much you recognize and appreciate their hard work. Don’t let the day pass by without a special lunch, a gift card – or perhaps a beautiful living gift from Casas Adobes Flower Shop.
While cut flowers are always a popular choice, an office environment may require something a bit more sophisticated – you might look at the elegant orchid for a striking statement; or a lucky bamboo plant to offer wishes for wealth and prosperity. Another great gift option available from Casas Adobes Flower Shop are gourmet fruit, cheese or chocolate baskets. For your coffee loving administrative assistant, this eye-opening Starbucks Sampler provides your key player with an assortment of coffees and biscotti to keep the productivity fueled.
