This week is National Administrative Professionals Week and Wednesday marks the 60th anniversary of the holiday. According to Wikipedia, the most popular ways to recognize administrative professionals are chocolate, lunch, flowers, gift cards and even professional development courses.
This week presents us with an opportunity to do a least a little something to recognize those who enable our organizations to run so smoothly. Many times the tireless work of these people is taken for granted or over-looked. It’s a great time to not only recognize those administrative professionals on your staff, but also to change habits and begin recognizing them – even with a simple thanks – more regularly.
