Every deserves to be recognized and what better chance then having a Administrative Professionals Day theme cake to just that for people. Lets stop and think about this for a minute as to work on the planning that will take place and the party supplies that will be needed. Ideas for the top of the cake once the frosting is done, using icing or candy lettering add words of appreciation or acknowledgement. Expand to include phrases or sayings that might be appropriate to those being recognized. Now here are the directions to making a cake, start by getting the oven to 350 degrees and coat a 13 by 9 by 2 inch pan, using no-stick cooking spray to start. The topping will combine sugar and flour in a small bowl, proceed to mix in butter flavored shortening. More about the cake using butter flavored shortening once more, plus sugar and vanilla. Now for the eggs, beating well include the flour, baking soda, salt to the mix. Almost done, just need to spread the batter into the pan, only about half because the cheery pie filling goes on top, repeat until done. Now bake the cake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

Secretaries Day is also known as Professional Secretaries Week or Administrated Professionals Day which has recently redesigned to include all office employees and in doing so can also be referred to as Administrative professional week. The first National Secretaries Day was held in 1952 and was sponsored by the Administrative Professionals Week Committee.

It is a common misconception that the holiday was started through organizations affiliated with the floral industry but the actual intent of the holiday was created to commemorate the greatly appreciated work of office employees to businesses and agencies and similarly to expand recognition of the field in students interested in the field. Secretaries Day has become widely accepted and appreciated by both employee and employers.You can even make it more special for your employee by taking them out for lunch or perhaps even brunch.

The common goals of the organization that started Secretaries Day were as follows: to increase awareness in the field, to increase the professional image, to persuade others to pursue the field of administration, and to endorse the quality of continuing education in professional development.

So who exactly can be considered for this special day of recognition that we used to call Secretary Day? The change to Administrative Professional vastly broadened the scope for those that qualify but largely it is anyone who you appreciate in your office or administrative people that make your life easier. As an employer, one of the easiest ways to maintain a healthy working atmosphere is to show your appreciation to those that make their daily duty tasks that revolve around un-complicating your daily schedules, however that might factor out individually.

There are some excellent ways that the employer can contribute to the well-being of their administrative supports. Tuition reimbursements for furthered education, registration for different conferences and seminars, and encouraging attainment of professional certification are three simple ways that an employer can give support to their existing employees and offer an avenue of growth for them and the company simultaneously.
