It’s Time to Celebrate Office Admins and Virtual Admins

C1Each year, a special time is set aside to recognize those talented individuals that work tirelessly to handle many of the small details and tasks that actually play a large role in how organized and productive a company and its leadership can be.C2

Those admins who work in the office or virtually are dedicated to making sure everything is handled at the operational level so their bosses can focus on those high-level decisions.

This year, we celebrate Administrative Professionals Week from April 24th to April 29th as well as Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday, April 27th.C3

This is a good time to let your admins know just how much you value their hard work and dedication.

We have a wide selection of beautiful ways to show your appreciation, including flower arrangements, bouquets, plants and blooming plants and gift baskets. Here are some examples to show you just what is available:

  • Nature’s Delight offers jade cymbidium orchids and roses, dianthus trix, garden hydrangea and green hypericum in a ceramic keepsake cube.
  • The Thinking of You Bouquet is a garden delight with roses, orchids, and hydrangea in a keepsake vase.C4

  • The For All You Do Bouquet has yellow roses and white spring daisies in a green glass vase.C5
  • The Exotic Phalaenopsis Orchid with Tropical Bromeliad pairs two tropical flowers together for a long-lasting way to share your appreciation.

Appreciate Your Secretary or Assistant with a Special Gift from Carithers Flowers Today!

Bosses, everywhere, it’s time to show your appreciation for all the care, hard work, and long hours that your secretaries and personal assistants put in on a daily basis to help you with the ever-taxing and stressful job of running a company.

Show them you care and that they matter by giving them the elegant gift of beautifully arranged flora on this national Secretaries’ Day. Also known as Administrative Professionals’ Day, this secular holiday is celebrated by many businesses every year all across the nation and even in some other countries.

When is the fabled Secretaries Day, you may ask? It is celebrated in America during the last seven-day week in April on a Wednesday and this year that day is April 25, 2012.

A Little Bit of History

Secretaries’ Day was first celebrated during the first week of June in 1952, and it was first suggested by Mary Barrett, the President of the National Secretaries’ Association, which later became known as the International Secretaries, Association. Marry Barrett and C. King Woodbridge, who was the President of the Dictaphone Corporation, were both serving on a council that was heavily focused on and concerned with the lack of skilled office workers in the nation. They worked together with Henry Klemfuss and created the idea for a National Secretaries, Week, which would become the widely celebrated National Secretaries, Day.

In recent years National Secretaries Day has become one of the largest recognized holidays in the work place. It’s the time when the big boss men and big boss women everywhere take this day to show their appreciation towards their assistants and all that they do. Because, without them, you really could end up in the dark, so, this year, go on and show your gratitude and recognize their efforts and loyalty!

Keep it Professional

It’s a gift that absolutely sings ‘thank you for all you do’ with its alluring white roses and yellow daisies all elegantly arranged in a stunning green designer vase.
