Edible Gifts for Administrative Assistant Professional Week

An edible gift basket is a form of appreciation for the more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants in the United States. Last week’s employment numbers showed that more than two million administrative assistants and secretaries have been unable to rejoin the job market since America’s economic downturn. While productivity is reportedly up, many offices of America still feel the pangs of losing these valuable administrative professionals (secretaries).

While Erin Hannon, the receptionist of NBC’s “The Office” exudes several quirky yet amicable personality traits, few coworkers on the sitcom demonstrate an appreciation for her enthusiastic work ethic.
