Happy Administrative Professionals' Day!

Did you know that the Wednesday of the last full week of April is Administrative Professionals' Day?

Yea, me either.

That was until this morning when my boss presented me with a HUGE (we're talking massive) bouquet of flowers! He thanked me for all the work I'm doing and I blushed because any time someone compliments me I turn into a teenager meeting their teen idol.

To give a little background on my job (because I realize it can be confusing - what does she do??? I can hear you asking...she does events, and emails and now she's an admin assistant - whatttttt?). I am technically the assistant to one of our EVP's, so I handle his calendar mostly, print stuff, file stuff. But I would say that takes up about 10% of my day. The rest of my time at work, I work on special projects which include our two large events a year and most recently an e-mail strategy project.

Right now my flowers are sitting on my desk emitting a heavenly scent and some of the flowers haven't even bloomed - so I'm thinking these suckers are going to last a lot longer than a week!

Man, I love my boss.

That's too sweet! So many bosses completely overlook this day/week.

I was happy that the staffing company I work through stopped by my office to bring me a mug with some candy. It's small but in this type of position any kind of recognition for what you do makes all the difference.

How wonderful to have a boss that appreciates you so much. Since every week is boss' week, its lovely to be recognised for everything that you do!

I have an Administrator who works for me and for five District Managers who also work for me. We all signed a card and gave her a small "bath and beauty" basket. And I gave her a card from me that included a gift card for her to spend as she liked. (That's what I always like to get -- choice!) She seemed to appreciate it. She is one in a million and we are SO LUCKY to have her! When I was an assistant, many years ago, I remember HOW FAR a simple "thank you" went from those who were thoughtful enough to care. Good topic.

Carissa said...

how nice of your boss! and I totally relate to the blushing thing-- I work from home but when I go into the office every wednesday to do layout (I write for a newspaper), if my boss comes over and talks to me or gives me a compliment on my work I blush like a little school girl! I think it's because I get nervous... I don't know why though! damn my pale face :)

Carissa said...

a short p.s.

I gave you working gals a blog award on my blog today. just wanted to say I love the blog!

happy weekend!

That's so great! I'm glad you have a nice boss who truly appreciates you and all the hard work you do!

The other year for Admins day I was so not appreciated in that job and rather miserable. So I called in sick on Admins day, went to the spa and then to the beach and had the best day ever! (Just a tip for anyone reading who does not have a boss who even recogizes the day such as I had back in my Assistant days).
