Appreciate Them This Secretaries Week

Secretaries Week is observed annually doing the last full week of April. This year, it will land between Sunday, April 19 and Saturday, April 25. The week focuses on showing appreciation to members of your administrative staff. It is customary for the boss to give out gifts such as flowers, candy, prepaid lunches, and even time off.

The origin of this holiday started in 1952, when the president of the National Secretaries Association, Mary Barrett and C. King Woodbridge, the president of the Dictaphone Corporation wanted to address the shortage of office workers as well as shine a light upon the individuals who were the key players to keeping companies running smoothly.

Later that year, National Secretaries Week was declared an official holiday by U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Charles Sawyer. This event kept evolving to include recognition for all members of the administrative support staff so in the year 2000, the name Administrative Professionals Week was created.

If you have people that utilize their skills to keep your business operating proficiently, give out tokens to express how much you value them. Beautiful flowers and gifts are one of the best ways to show your gratitude.

Kudos to the Professionals  

Your office worker will know that you admire their abilities, when they are presented with Thanks a Daisy. It’s a magnificent bouquet of brilliant pink African daisies, lime green cushion spray chrysanthemums, pastel lavender daisy sprays and more, showcased in a perky decorative vase.

Imagine your employee’s face when they receive this gorgeous Bright and Stunning floral arrangement. Displayed in a stylish cubed vase, it’s overflowing with vibrant colored roses, daisies, and lilies.

You have the option of choosing between two sizes, regular or large.
