Have you thought about what you’re going to get your administrative professional this year? Administrative Professionals Day is April 23rd, so you don’t have much time left. In fact, you may want to get your flowers order in soon if you’re sending him or her flowers. You can also give them a bit of a pay bonus, give them a gift, or take them out to lunch.
Administrative professionals keep everything running smoothly, make sure you know exactly where you need to be, and more often than not handle any emergencies that come up. They’re also your gatekeepers, making sure only the people who really need to see you get in to take up your time. Some also serve as moral officer, making sure hurt feelings get smoothed over and bad days don’t get too bad.
