5 gift ideas for Administrative Professionals Day

March 31 / Canada

Administrative professionals work hard to keep businesses on track by aligning schedules, planning meetings and events, and stepping in wherever needed to keep your organization up and running. 

Whether you’re working remotely or in person this Administrative Professionals Day (April 21, 2021), take time to celebrate the hard work of your colleagues by offering them a thoughtful gift. Here are some ideas that will surely show your administrative team how much you appreciate them. 

Celebrate over lunch

Your administrative team hustles year-round. Give them a break by hosting a lunch that’s all about them. Whether this is an in-person or virtual event, take this opportunity to recognize your colleagues for their achievements and highlight their contributions to the organization. 

If you’re working remotely, you can send them an Uber Eats voucher to cover their meal and delivery. Everyone on your team will appreciate a break from their hectic day and a treat for lunch.

Send a gift basket or gift box

What’s better than one gift? A bunch of gifts. From chocolate turtles to fruit to assorted meats and cheeses, you really can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned gift basket.

If you’d like to get something more personalized, a gift box might be the way to go. You can give the gift of wine to the team sommelier or a boxful of succulents to your resident botanist. 

Give the perfect gift

It can be tough to pick out the perfect gift that says both “I appreciate your hard work” and “I know this past year has been an absolute dumpster fire.” Take the guesswork out of gift giving and offer your team gift cards this Administrative Professionals Day. 

With an Uber gift card, recipients can choose when and where they’d like to use it, applying this credit to either their Uber account or Uber Eats account. Give them the gift of enjoying their favorite restaurant at home, by covering their meal and delivery, or cover their next ride with Uber. Either way, your team will be surprised and delighted.  

Offer a perk

Show your appreciation with a gift that lasts by covering a stipend or subscription for your colleagues. Have they picked up a lockdown hobby? Maybe they have really gotten into meditation, are learning a new language, or are finally watching that show everyone’s been talking about. Whatever it is, you can support their new pastime by covering the cost of their app subscription or streaming service.  

Not sure what type of stipend or subscription to get? Set them up with a meal stipend that can cover their meals and delivery. Uber Eats is a great way to keep your team well fed and happy at work. In fact, according to a recent Uber for Business survey, 63% of workers said that food provided at work would keep them happy and satisfied with their current employer.

Give a flex day

Your administrative team works hard day in and day out, often working outside of traditional office hours to get the job done. In an IAAP survey, 3 out of 4 full-time administrative professionals report working overtime every week. Offering your team an additional flex day to use at their discretion will show them that you appreciate their time and hard work.  

Your administrative team keeps your organization running, whether you’re working remotely or going into the office. Showing your appreciation this Administrative Professionals Day will go a long way.
