Reasons to Send eCards for Administrative Professionals Day

Sending greeting cards for special occasions is a time-honored tradition—think of the cards you’ve received for birthdays or holidays and how the heartfelt messages written inside made you feel. eCards help you impart that same feeling to the administrative professionals at your workplace on Administrative Professionals Day.

Aside from that, here are a few other reasons why you should use eCards:

  • Convenience. As eCards are digital, they’re extremely convenient to design and send. With a solution like eCardWidget, you’ll go through a streamlined process to create an eCard for Administrative Professionals Day and send it to whomever you want to celebrate. You can even schedule send your eCard to ensure your administrative professionals receive it on the correct day!
  • Cost-effective. With eCards, you won’t have to worry about purchasing physical greeting cards, postage, and envelopes. Instead, you can send your eCard through email with the click of a button, making it a more cost-effective way to celebrate Administrative Professionals Day.
  • Customizability. If you’ve ever wandered down the greeting cards aisle of a store, you know that sometimes you don’t find a card that fits. eCard software eliminates this obstacle by allowing you to design custom cards that fit your needs.
  • Personalization. Although cards are a thoughtful gesture, it’s the message inside them that makes them special. Much like with traditional greeting cards, you can write a heartfelt thank you message to administrative professionals, personalizing your eCards to address their specific contributions and what you’re especially appreciative of them for.
  • Eco-friendly. 50% of business waste consists of paper products. With digital eCards, you can eliminate a source of paper waste to help protect our planet and be more sustainable. Plus, considering that 92% of consumers are more likely to trust a company that supports social and environmental issues, this is a great start to sustainability practices that strengthen relationships with your clients.

Selecting or Designing Administrative Professionals Day eCards

Although sending eCards for holidays such as Administrative Professionals Day brings many benefits, you’ll need to put thought into the design of the eCards you send. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your Administrative Professionals Day eCards:

A few considerations for selecting or designing an eCard for Administrative Professionals Day, also covered in the text below.
How to Celebrate Administrative Professionals with eCards 17
  • Visual appeal. eCards come in many different designs, so be sure to pick one that’s visually appealing to the recipient. Go beyond an eCard that simply consists of the words “thank you,” and look for one that includes an accompanying graphic or photo.
  • Relevance. Make sure that the card is relevant to Administrative Professionals Day to ensure that your employees feel properly appreciated. This means that the card should have well wishes like “Happy Admin Day!” along with an image that relates to the occasion, such as a desk or an office.
  • Tone. Choose an eCard that reflects your relationship with your employees and the business you run. For instance, if you own a flower shop and are very casual with your administrative staff, you might send an eCard that’s a little more silly, such as one that says “Things that get me through the work week… an awesome admin like you!”. On the other hand, if you run a law firm, your eCard may be more professional, with a message like “Thank you for your hard work.”

Although you can choose an existing eCard to send, designing a custom eCard gives you greater control over the visuals and message you convey to the recipient. Plus, they’ll appreciate that you took the time to make the eCard yourself.

Writing an Administrative Professional Day Messages

Putting down your appreciation in the form of a written message can be difficult. After all, it’s hard to sum up the gratitude you feel for your administrative staff. However, a personalized message will communicate just how crucial they are to your business’s operations.

Start your eCard message by wishing the recipient a happy Administrative Professionals Day. Then, thank the recipient for all their hard work. Be sure to mention specific achievements or behaviors that you’ve noticed and appreciated.

Here are some phrases you can include in your eCard:

  • Thank you for everything you do.
  • I really appreciate how you keep everything organized around here.
  • I see how hardworking and dedicated you are.
  • You do so much to keep this business going.
  • You are the backbone of our team.
  • Thank you for managing the chaos of every workday.

Here’s an example message you can include in an Administrative Professionals Day eCard:

Happy Administrative Professionals Day! Thank you so much for your hard work every single day. You’re truly the backbone of our business, keeping everything organized and making sure everything runs smoothly while maintaining a positive attitude. We’d be lost without you!

Your message doesn’t need to be particularly long, as long as it’s genuine and heartfelt. When you’re writing it, be sure to reflect on the specific positive qualities of your staff members to make your message feel more personal.

Extra Gifts for Administrative Professionals Day

Aside from sending an eCard, you can also celebrate administrative professionals by giving them other gifts, such as:

  • Gift cards
  • Flowers
  • Lunch or dinner
  • A spa trip
  • The afternoon or a day off

Ideally, your gift should show that you value your administrative employees as individuals. For instance, if one of your admin professionals has expressed an interest in gardening, you might send them a box of seeds. Or, if they’ve mentioned that they dislike coffee but love tea, you can give them an assortment of teas to try.

Considerations for Administrative Professionals Day

For some admin professionals, this day reinforces a misguided distinction between them and other professionals. As many of them are made to feel as though they are inferior to other professionals, having a dedicated day to celebrate them emphasizes the lack of respect that they receive daily.

Keep this in mind as you’re brainstorming how to show appreciation on Administrative Professionals Day and be careful not to come off as patronizing. Frame your eCards and gifts as recognition for all the hard work they do behind the scenes, rather than just as a celebration for their specific role.

The best way to combat the divide between administrative professionals and your other employees is to include your administrative staff in your day-to-day appreciation efforts. Your organization should already have an employee recognition program to formally show your gratitude to your employees—simply make an effort to use this program for your administrative employees as well.

Consistent appreciation shows administrative professionals that you see them as equal to your other employees. Plus, almost 78% of employees would be more productive if they were recognized more frequently, so implementing a strong recognition program will result in more motivated employees.
