At the end of World War II, organized efforts encouraged women to become office assistants, as their skills were sorely needed to help companies recover operations. The initiative resulted in the establishment of National Secretaries Day, and through the decades, the day continued to be celebrated as a way to honor secretaries for their hard work – even when terminology changed to reflect contemporary values. The modern observance is known as Administrative Professionals Week – and is an opportunity for bosses everywhere to recognize the contributions of hard-working and dedicated receptionists, assistants, and office workers.
Many people take their administrative professionals out to lunch, while others give gift cards. But one of the most popular gifts to convey appreciation for a job well done is the gift of flowers. Here in Wilmington, the experts at Boyd’s Flowers have designed a collection of desktop arrangements sure to brighten any workplace with gorgeous style.
Vivid roses and alstroemeria combine with sunny daisies and sunflowers for this cheerful spring arrangement perfect to add color to any office environment.
Did You Know? Employees who are shown appreciation are more productive, take fewer sick days, and stay at the company longer. Invest in your company by purchasing one of these adorable desktop bouquets for each of your administrative professionals. We like the Gerberas, delphinium, and green Fuji mums which deliver organic beauty in rustic decorative vases – guaranteed to make them feel appreciated!
For long-lasting gifts that will remind them of how valuable they are all year round, we recommend our handcrafted patio planter, designed to grow three miniature plants. Your employees can bring them home to sit on the windowsill or adorn the front porch – or keep them inside on their desk. Either way, these plants are a unique way to show gratitude to your hardest workers.
Administrative professionals are the true backbone of any organization – this April, how will you say thank you for their dedication? If you call Boyd’s Flowers, you won’t have to worry about a thing – we are committed to the exceptional quality and customer service you expect!
