"During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to Depression-era birth-rate decline and booming post-war business. "
National Administrative Professionals’ Day was first proclaimed by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer in June 1952.
The modern observance is known as Administrative Professionals Week – and is an opportunity for bosses everywhere to recognize the contributions of hard-working and dedicated assistants, receptionists and office workers.
Most common gift for this special day is the gift of flowers - either a long lasting plant or a fresh flower arrangement. We offer a variety of orchids and fresh flowers to make your assistant feel special and appreciated.
