Sincere Thank You Notes for Administrative Professionals Day

Sometimes, an administrative professional goes above and beyond the call of duty and deserves a really, really sincere thank you note. In this case, it’s important to be specific; mention attributes and instances that are specific to your administrative professional, like the following examples do:

  • [Barb], you do so much to keep this place going — and somehow, you do it with a smile on your face. Your positivity is a breath of fresh air. Thank you!
  • I know I don’t tell you this enough, [Barb], but your contribution to this team is tremendous. I appreciate your work ethic and great attitude, and I’m so grateful to have you here. I hope you have a wonderful day!
  • [Barb], you’ve made my life easier more times than I could ever count, and I’m especially grateful for all the times you’ve helped me rearrange my schedule to accommodate meetings. I’d be lost without you. Thanks for being such an amazing administrative professional!
