April 25th, referred to as Secretary’s Day and Administrative Professional Day highlights the momentous time of year to commemorate these key coworkers with a fruit basket, floral arrangement, or any other thoughtful gift idea.
Last year, a Chicago-based financial institution demonstrated its appreciation with a number of surprises for Secretary’s Day (Administrative Professionals’ Day). When receptionists, administrators and other support staff arrived, they were greeted with a cup of coffee, a choice of pastry and an edible fruit bouquet with a greeting card. The contents of the card also housed a gift certificate to Starbucks. Some employees received American Express credit debit card with the edible fruit bouquet.
