Dear Administrative Peers,
I hope this finds you healthy and happy. I hope your week is full of demonstrations of employer recognition that is valuable to you.
I hope that you recognize and understand your true value, not only to your company, to your co-workers, but to the overall economic good.
I hope you are able to see that people count on you, your work, your ability to communicate clearly and honestly, and to deliver on tasks. I hope you have the respect of those you work alongside.
I hope your supervisor(s), your company, your co-workers can acknowledge your continuous effort to keep all the pieces moving in the right direction.
For those of you that hate being in the administrative field, I hope you can find a different employer, or perhaps a different career field, that makes you content.
Some may say this week of recognition is nothing but a made up holiday in order to sell more flowers or cards. Some say this week of recognition is just a small opportunity to make others aware of the work we do. I see it as a week of pride, almost like a homecoming celebration. One time a year, we gather as a profession to acknowledge the hard work loads and sometime challenging personalities we encounter in our daily work. I like to think of it as one big ‘Clink’ of glass as we toast one another for a successful year.
Best wishes to each and every one of you. I am so very proud to be part of this community.
