Here at Peoples Flowers, we would never miss the chance to say thank you to our administrative professionals, whose official day falls this year on April 25. And we’ve got just the way to kick things off, with a little initiative we’re calling “Desktop Awareness.” After a long winter, we’re certain that most work spaces could use a little perking up, if not a downright overhaul. We’re shining a light on the sorry states of our desks and demanding more. We’re demonstrating how flowers and plants can make a huge difference in our work lives, and we’re doing it on behalf of the admins.
When you consider who runs your organization every day, who comes to mind? According to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), the unsung heroes – and backbone of every corporation – are the administrative professionals. These very important employees represent the first voice that your clients hear or the first face that they encounter. They handle appointments and schedules, wrangle all the details, and know how everything gets done.
Administrative Professionals Week begins on April 23, giving Albuquerque business owners the opportunity to recognize all of the hard work and determination of their support personnel. And Peoples Flowers has the administrative professional gifts, floral designs, and plants that they are sure to love. Continue reading
Although the day we celebrate on April 27 was originally named “National Secretaries Day”, it has undergone many name changes to reflect the evolution of society and workplace dynamics. In the year 2000, the day was renamed National Administrative Professionals Day. This title more accurately expresses the level of importance of these employees to our organizations, and to the economy. Without our administrative support personnel, we would probably be lost.
These are the members of our team who greet our clients, arrange our meetings and keep our schedules straight. They are often the first face our customers see, the first voice they speak to, and their first line of communication when they have a problem. With a calm demeanor and efficient personalities, they manage all that a day at the office entails; and in the process make everyone’s job easier. Although they don’t always get the recognition they deserve, on April 27, you have the opportunity to make sure that they do.
Although not a holiday on the calendar, National Administrative Professionals Day is celebrated across the United States, as well as around the world. It is not only a day set aside to appreciate the people you work with; but the International Association of Administrative Professionals, the organization behind the day, also promotes continuing education opportunities, interacts with professionals around the globe, and establishes standards of excellence.
Our Albuquerque office spaces are often elegant, chic and professional. Peoples Flower Shops has a large variety of gifts, one of which is sure to fit into the décor of your office perfectly. Orchids and exotic flowering plants are unique gifts that will last for years, reminding your employees of how appreciative you are of their service.
This April 27, make sure your employees know how much you value them. Call Peoples Flower Shops for ideas and inspiration for the best administrative personnel in the world – yours.
Traditionally celebrated around the last week of April each year, Administrative Professionals Week is the perfect occasion to thank your employees and recognize their hard work, making them feel appreciated and valued. During Administrative Professionals Week, employers often celebrate by treating employees to continuing education, seminars, lunch out of the office, or pastries brought into the office and by gifting tokens of appreciation like trinkets, flowers, and gifts. This year, Administrative Professionals Week will take place April 19th through the 25th. Our professional florists can help you make sure your staff feels truly appreciated with flowers and gifts from Peoples Flowers Shops.
Nothing will brighten your administrative assistant’s desk and day like a colorful floral arrangement. Our Lilies & Lemons bouquet featuring a vibrant arrangement of yellow button mums, goldenrod, and yellow lilies will sweeten the air with their floral aroma and the office atmosphere with their cheerful design. Arranged in glass bowl filled with fresh slices of lime and lemon this unique bouquet makes a fun and festive gift sure to be appreciated by any administrative assistant during Administrative Professionals Week.
Introduce a lasting sense of calm to your office this Administrative Professionals Week by giving your assistant a spathiphyllum plant, commonly known as as peace lily. This plant features large, deep green leaves and blooms in white. Easy to care for, a peace lily will bring lasting serenity and beauty to the office. Peace lily orders can be customized to complement your office’s interior with a container choice of a wicker basket, attractive metal tin planter, or a ceramic container.
In addition to flowers and plants, you can show your gratitude with edible gifts that the recipient can enjoy alone or share with whole office. Consider having an artfully arranged basket delivered to the office. We have a variety of gift baskets containing snacks, candy, and gourmet foods. A favorite of health-conscious employees, our Fruit & Cheese Basket contains an assortment of fruits, a variety of cheeses, crackers for a little crunch, and hard candies. This basket comes in a gift wrapped wicker basket topped with a bow. Available in multiple sizes, our gift baskets will accommodate any number of employees.
