National Office Professionals Day

 May 5 2008

Formerly known as Secretary's Day

All year, your Secretary or Personal Assistant works hard to make your life easier. She or he probably saves you many headaches and inconvenient interruptions.

Consider for a minute what your working week would be like without your Assistant ...

Is a little recognition of her or his efforts in order? Office Professional's Day is on May 5 and could be just the opportunity for you to acknowledge how much you appreciate your secretary, PA, receptionist, mail room staff and other administrative people in the business.

Flowers are always well received, or maybe you want something a little different. Below are some suggestions for you; each item suggested is linked to the site where you can purchase it online. You can order a gift for your Office Professional to arrive in the office on the day - you don't even need to leave your desk.

National Office Professional's Day is set by AIOP each year in Australia. In other places, such as USA and the UK, the day is in late April. However, with Easter and Anzac Day in Australia, the day has been delayed to May to simplify things.

Recognition Ideas:

Lunch: Take your assistant out to lunch, or send them to the AIOP National Breakfast to celebrate with other assistants.
