Memo to Bosses: Give Your Employees a Natural Boost on April XX
Administrative Professionals Week is April XX-XX, Administrative Professionals Day is April XX
(YOUR CITY AND STATE) – Administrative Professionals Week, also known as Professional Secretaries Week, is a time to recognize support staff for their accomplishments and contributions to corporate success. Research from Texas A&M University reveals one gift of appreciation in particular that will naturally lift an employee’s mood, create a lasting memory and boost productivity.
The research demonstrates that flowers and plants enhance people’s ability to generate ideas and solve problems.
“Our study shows that adding flowers and plants to a work environment can be very meaningful to businesses in the modern economy,” said Roger Ulrich, Ph.D., lead Texas A&M researcher. “People’s productivity, innovation and creative problem solving, improved – which in certain circumstances could mean the difference between mild and great business success.”
(Your Name, title of Company Name in City) offers an additional perspective. “Giving flowers is a loud, proud, sophisticated way of saying ‘I appreciate all you do.’ They’re a great way to build a strong, lasting professional relationship,” said (Your Last Name).
