Although originally called “National Secretary’s Day,” the day we celebrate on April 27 has experienced several name changes over the years to better represent modern business dynamics and evolving job descriptions. In the year 2000, the annual observance was once again given a new identity and is now known as National Administrative Professionals Day.
Career administrative professionals handle multi-tasking with skill and diligence. They are on the front line with our clients; they magically coordinate everyone’s schedules; they keep the office running smoothly in the face of unexpected delays and obstacles. With calm reactions and unruffled personalities, they juggle everything that comprises a day at the office; and in the process make everyone’s job easier. They do not always get the appreciation due to them, but during Administrative Professional’s Week and especially on April 27th, you have the chance to let them know they are the best!
Although not an official holiday, National Administrative Professionals Day is observed across the country and around the globe. The organization that represents the nearly 9 million professionals in the United States is called the International Association of Administrative Professionals, and it is far from a benign social club. This powerful association promotes ongoing educational opportunities and facilitates industry networking with professionals around the world. They are also responsible for creating standards of excellence – these are not your grandfather’s secretary. These are professionals who are empowered and dedicated to the growth of your business.
Some office spaces are often sophisticated, trendy and professional; while others are low key and casual. Mission Viejo Florist has a wide selection of gifts, one of which is sure to fit and complement the culture of your office and the ambiance of the space. Orchids, exotic flowering plants, and garden containers are creative gifts that will last for years – reminding your employees over and over that you appreciate them and their efforts.
This April 27, call Mission Viejo Florist to have the very best floral arrangements, plants and gift baskets delivered to the very best employees – yours!
