Gifts for Professionals, the leader in employee recognition gifts, announced today the search for “America’s Best Secretary.”
In announcing the search, Samantha Tate, marketing director for the company announced “contestants will be nominated by their boss or co-workers and then can encourage their friends and family to vote for them.” She added, “We went to foster a spirit of teamwork in the workplace and appreciation in our communities for America’s great secretaries.”
Joining Tate in the launch of “America’s Best Secretary” contest was Sean Thomas, the company’s leading recognition specialist who noted “many times the secretary is the ‘first contact’ a customer or potential customer has with a business. Having a friendly, competent and detail oriented secretary is key to helping professionals do their jobs and maintain a level of success. Key employees must be recognized and rewarded” he said.
The search for “America’s Best Secretary” will be open until April 15th, at which time everyone can vote after reading the nomination essays (250 words) submitted by each company. The winner will be announced on April 22nd and receive a desk accessory gift valued at over $100. Multiple “runner-ups” will receive a secretary occupation mug.
“We’re just a few weeks away from Administrative Professional’s Day and companies of all sizes need to remember the pivotal role a competent secretary plays in the mission of the entire business” stated Tate. She elaborated that the brainchild of the contest was actually “one of our own secretaries who thought having a boss or co-workers write how wonderful their secretary was at their job would be a fun way to bring the workplace together in celebration of teamwork.”
Companies nominate their secretary by visiting http://www.giftsforprofessionals.com and looking for the graphic for “America’s Best Secretary.” Anyone 21 or oder in the United States with a business can nominate their secretary. Each nomination requires a 250 “testimonial” written to explain why that secretary is crucial to the organization. Specific examples of dedication are encouraged.
The contest is designed to raise awareness for all of America’s secretaries who will celebrate National Administrative Assistants week during the last week of April.
