Administrative Professional's day is next week. This year, let's broaden the appreciation to the co-workers who are shouldering the load and bearing up under immense pressures. Some are calling it #CoWorkerWednesday!
With the uncertainties we are facing and the disruption, people working from home, etc., you might be forget until the last minute to reach out in appreciation to the co-workers who are making things happen.
Here are a few tips:
- Order lunch for them - support a locally owned restaurant who is delivering.
- Send them a gift card from a local business to purchase something they really enjoy doing - support their hobby.
- Support Local Businesses - here are 4 resources:
- https://supportlocal.xyz/ - a new page to connect with local businesses
- Look up locally-owned businesses at www.bniarizona.com - Find a local business who is accountable to dozens of business leaders every week - a trusted referral source.
- Or use Hownd app for android or Iphone
- Ask Karin, our owner, who loves to give referrals!
- Send flowers or a plant - we will have limited delivery actually on Wednesday, and will be delivering all week - that's why we're offering #AdminDayIsAnyDay - you place the order, we'll create a stunning design, and deliver safely, with no contact delivery. Reservations on first-come-first serve basis, with our Floral Concierge Members having reserved spots. This helps us use the best of what is available, and also gives us flexibility with the resources and strategies to keep everyone safe.
- Send a card to their home address - if you want to try a new online/phone app, use this link and look for the button at the top 'Send A Card' and you can send a card on me - upload pictures, write your own text, or choose from a greeting card to edit. It will be printed and sent within 3-5 days. Want to send more than one? Reach out and I'll help you!
- Sign them up for a virtual health, yoga or other online class to support their well-being, if that's something they like to do - again support local businesses! Check out Sirrine Yoga
