Top 5 Ways to Thank Your Administrative Team:

1 – A Memory Collection

Whether it’s a list of their favorite sayings, a scrapbook of funny work photos, or an exchange of memorable anecdotes, memories are the perfect way to celebrate an administrative professional on your team. Put together a collection of memories you can use to reminisce on all the special experiences you shared – it’ll make them feel incredibly special!

2 – Take a Walk in their shoes

Volunteer to cover their desk while they grab a coffee or take a long lunch. This is a great way for you to not only see what they do every day (and how difficult it can sometimes be!), but it’ll also let them truly enjoy their break without worrying about rushing back!

3 – Opportunity to learn

Is there a new skill or program they would like to learn? Maybe even something you could learn together? Offer them the opportunity to sign up for a training session or take a professional development class that teaches them something new. There are a variety of classes offered by local organizations, universities, and companies. Look to see if there is anything in your area that would interest your administrative professional, or yourself. Remember – the gift of learning is something they’ll always have!

4 – Send them away to an afternoon off or treat them to lunch

Nothing makes a workday go by quite like having the afternoon off! Show them your appreciation by giving them some time to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy time with their family. Or, take time out of your day to treat them to lunch at their favorite café or nearby restaurant. They’ll truly appreciate the thoughtful gesture!

5 – Sweet Surprise

Surprises never get old, and they’re an awesome way to show you care! Surprise them by leaving something on their desk before they get in or stop by their desk with an afternoon pick-me-up. If you need something in a pinch, we have the perfect solution – same day delivery for ALL of these sweet gift options.

We hope you’re inspired to think outside the box this year for Administrative Professionals’ Week, and that our “Top 5 Celebration Ideas” will make this year’s holiday that much more memorable. Happy celebrating!
