Does Your Office Celebrate Administrative Assistant's Day?

Secretary's Day or the politically correct and more appropriate designation, Administrative Professionals Day falls on Wednesday, April 23, 2008!

What gifts do you have in mind for your administrative assistants and other staff members? If I have one tip for bosses in companies no matter who big or small, please do not let Secretary's Day pass you by without acknowledging your staff. Contrary to what you may think, it is a BIG deal for those professional staff members that keep your company and office running on a day in and day out basis. Why not jump at the chance to tell them how much you appreciate them?

Acknowledge Your Administrative StaffForgetting Administrative Professionals Day is the equivalent of missing Valentine's Day for your wife or girl friend. The difference is that your administrative assistant will not complain. Their feelings will be hurt so their performance is likely to suffer or worse the next time they see another employment ad, they will be tempted to look. Here at Arttowngifts.com we make it easy for you to acknowledge the contribution of your administrative assistants, professional staff and secretaries.

Our top of the line Pamper Me Basket will make a great impression with a bath caddy packed with slippers, a towel, and a variety of soaps, lotions and creams. If you know that they like to read, our Book Lovers Gift Basket is a perfect choice. Alternatively if they like to work in their garden then our Weekend Garden Gift Basket is ideal. We even have a Bird House Gift Basket for nature lovers and a Keepsake Kitchen Gift Basket for the cook!
