If you are a small business owner, your administrative or executive assistant is probably one of the most important people in your life. Making this individual happy is critical for keeping your company running smoothly. Rather than waiting for Christmas, consider buying something now to show your appreciation for your secretary. Office furniture is a gift that sends several messages:
- I value the skills and experience you bring to the company
- I care about your day-to-day comfort in the workplace
- You deserve to have nice things
- Please don’t quit!
When it comes to office furniture, there are several things that most administrative personnel like. These include plenty of storage space, a large worksurface, and ergonomic touches like a monitor stand and a keyboard tray. Beyond that, everybody has different tastes in finishes and detailing. So you might want to turn over the catalogue to your administrative assistant, give them a generous budget, and let them pick their own.
