A good administrative professional can really benefit a business. As Administrative Professionals Day is April 27, here are some gift ideas to treat the administrators, secretaries, and other similar employees at your office.
Appeal to Their Stomach
Sometimes the best way to an employee’s heart is through their stomach. A tasty treat is a simple way to show your appreciation to an administrative assistant. These gifts can take a variety of forms, with some suggestions including:
- Coffee beans or tea bags
Those are just a few examples, but there are plenty of other potential treats as well. Just make sure to cater your gift to the employee, as you’re not going to want to give peanut butter cups to someone with a peanut allergy.
Go-to Gift Cards
If you’d rather have your administrative assistants choose their treats for themselves, a gift card is a great way to go. Gift cards are simple and let your employees decide for themselves exactly what they’ll get. All you have to do is pick an establishment that fits each employee. If you really have trouble narrowing it down to a store or restaurant, it never hurts to ask.
The Gift of Time
When in doubt, time can always be on your side. Long lunches and early dismissals are nice rewards in lieu of gifts. If an administrative assistant has really done a great job, a day off is certainly a great way for that employee to celebrate Administrative Professionals Day.
Rewarding Your Team With Employee Benefits
Small gifts can go a long way to build your employees’ morale. Another way to reward your team is through professional employee benefit administration.
