From answering client requests to responding to inquiries, organizing calendars and keeping up with the daily tasks of the office – the administrative professionals in our companies are instrumental in keeping the business running smoothly day after day. And the day to celebrate all their hard work and contributions to your business success is coming up soon. April 27th is National Administrative Professionals Day, and here at Boyd’s, we encourage you to take the opportunity to thank these often overlooked employees for all their hard work.
During the World War II era, there was a critical need for people to join the administrative career force. In order to keep business flourishing, particularly in the United States, the National Secretaries Association decided to organize efforts to give credit to these workers. The intent was that the appreciation of these personnel would provide encouragement and draw others to choose the career field. The first official observance was in 1952, but both the name and the organization have evolved over time. The original event was National Secretaries Day, but with continuous economic changes and changes to our societal values, the day has grown to include various career disciplines and a name that better reflects their impact.
There are many ways to encourage and inspire these professionals in your workplace to continue bringing excellence to all that they do. Giving flowers is a long-standing tradition that isn’t going out of style anytime soon. Flowers add life and vitality to any office space – brighten their desk with spring wildflowers, or add to their professional décor with orchids, unique bamboo, or a lush green plant. We have the perfect choice for any office culture and every employee.
Don’t let your administrative professionals – from the front desk to the call center – go unnoticed this month! Our expert designers at Boyd’s Flowers are happy to help you choose an arrangement that represents the hard work, dedication and professionalism of our Wilmington area business personnel.
