Administrative Professionals Day

Wednesday, April 24, 2019, is an important time for businesses to appreciate and recognize the hard work of their support and administrative professionals. It’s known as #AdminProfessionalDay.

It’s a day to show your admin how grateful you are for them. Whether they keep you on track with business or personal deadlines, admins are valued by many managers. We hope you know how special you are!

Below are five ideas to help you celebrate Administrative Professionals Day:

1. Team building activities
Team building is a great idea if you’re rewarding a larger group of administrative professionals. From Culinary cookoffs to Charitable give-back program, there are many engaging and fun activities for your admins to participate in.

In addition to rewarding your employees with a fun activity outside of the office, team building activities can also help build confidence in employees and boost overall performance. On a larger level, these types of activities can grow a strong organizational culture. Employees develop deeper relationships and learn to work better with each other.

2. Time off
Your admins work hard, so why not reward them with a day off? You can even bring it up a notch and reward them with an afternoon at the movies, spa or mall. Most people enjoy a paid break to rest and reset.  Especially the incoming workforce, as it can help decrease stress levels.You can even extend the time off and offer a couple of paid vacation days. They can use to take a small trip somewhere with friends or family.

3. Personalized gift
Another excellent way to properly award your admins is to give them a personalized gift. Learn what your admin likes and dislikes. Talk with their co-workers to gain a better understanding of their favorites. Take time to get to know your admin better if you’re not exactly sure what they like.

In return, your admin won’t just appreciate the personalized gift, but be more motivated in their work.  They will know you value them and their skills.

4. Professional development
Not every admin will want a gift or time off. Some may actually want and would benefit from a professional training course or seminar. Have an informal one-on-one with your admins.  Discuss what skills they are looking to develop.  These skill can help them become more effective at their job or to help further their career. Then, once you have an idea of what they would like to develop, look for programs, seminars or workshops that they could attend.

In addition, at BEST, we offer many corporate training and professional development workshops. From time management to conflict resolution workshops, we can help your employees develop the necessary core competencies needed in today’s business environment.

5. Cater lunch
Lastly, consider rewarding admins with a catered lunch or treat them to lunch outside of the office. Talk with employees to learn what type of food they enjoy.  You can offer the perfect catered lunch.  You could also take your admins out for lunch.  This will show your gratitude for their hard work. Plus, employees will notice if you go the extra mile to make their Administrative Professionals Day special.

All in all, Administrative Professionals Day is an important one for businesses to celebrate and it’s vital that your admins be properly recognized and rewarded for their daily hard work and contribution.

Corporate meeting planners often ask us if we offer Keynote Speakers. We know the importance of kicking off the day with an inspiring speech. It was important to us to not only add keynote speakers to our lineup but to program full day events that entertain, motivate and inspire your group.

Keynotes are critical

We introduce Full Day events, a series of 3 events in one day for your group. Each program relates and connects to the next. Start the day with a 60-minute inspirational keynote, designed to set the tone and encourage maximum participant impact. We’ve partnered with Tom Leu, a dynamic keynote speaker, and corporate trainer. Tom offers unique proprietary content with one-of-a-kind “edutainment” you can’t get anywhere else.

Tom Leu’s Corporate Kick-Off Keynotes will be customized to your event and your companies goals.  BEST offers a keynote to kick off every team building program.  Strategic communication affecting improved productivity is not only valuable but also necessary for next-level professionals in today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected world. Tom’s keynotes can also be done as a stand-alone.

Introducing Full Day Events

With the addition of Kick-off keynotes, BEST facilitates fun and meaningful full-day events for your group based on their needs and desired outcomes. So instead of a two-hour window to pack everything in, start with a Kick-off Keynote, followed by an inspiring Interactive Program and then end with a rewarding Team Building Event to wrap up the day!

Whether in the conference room, boardroom, ballroom or convention center, BEST will facilitate three programs that all relate to one another and share common vantage points and strategies for success.

Are you in the planning stages of your upcoming conference? Is your company looking to add a day to its agenda that includes a motivational kickoff, an interactive activity, and a group team building activity? Then Full Day Events with BEST are for you!

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
