Today is Administrative Professional’s Day (formally known as Secretary’s Day). Here are 3 terrific ways to show your appreciation for all of the little things you never get to say thank you for.
1. Free Coffee. In an op-ed piece for the New York Times, “Do Secretaries Have a Future?,” secretary and author Lynn Peril laments the disconnect between technology and tradition, namely that despite all of the job duties that have become obsolete, someone still needs to make coffee. Today, thank someone in the office with a complimentary cup of Joe. Want to go bigger? Buy lunch!
2. Just say it. SavvySugar’s post on how to show gratitude in the office takes busy schedules and confusing etiquette into account and gives you the 5-second memo on how to let your coworkers know you appreciate them. Surprise, one of their tips involves coffee!
3. Give the gift of time. Who do you know who couldn’t use a day off? Better yet? Why not hand over the game or concert tickets you came into last week?
