There is one “To Do” your administrative assistant can’t help you with … remembering Administrative Professionals Day, Wednesday, April 25! What we can tell you is your positive support for your assistant’s career would mean so much more than a typical “lunch and bunch” [a quick lunch and a bunch of flowers].
At Office Dynamics International, we know administrative professionals because that is our singular focus: providing superior, proven, trusted training and resources to build synergy and success! To help you celebrate Administrative Professionals Day in spectacular style, along with lunch, consider the following career supporting gift ideas:
