Administrative Professional of the Year Awards 2009

Celebrations will host the first ‘Administrative Professional of The Year Awards’ ceremony on Administrative Professionals Day, today at 6.30p.m., at their Concierge Lounge in the Mirco Centre. Administrative Professionals Day formerly known as Secretary’s Day is an unofficial secularholiday observed on the Wednesday of the last full week of April to recognize the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.

Over the years, Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances. The event is celebrated worldwide, bringing together millions of people for community events, social gatherings, and individual corporate activities recognizing support staff with gifts of appreciation. The day is often celebrated by giving one’s assistant such gifts as flowers, gift baskets and gift cards.

‘In recent years we have seen Administrative Professionals Week grow in significance in Grand Cayman. Employers are aware of the importance of rewarding and encouraging their staff. We decided that we would like to go a step further this year and present one deserving individual with the award for Administrative Professional of The Year,” said Jo-Anne V. Brown, Managing Director of Celebrations.

The winner will receive a beautiful plaque, a gold Blackberry Pearl kindly sponsored by Digicel and a Celebrations gift card worth $100.

Digicel Cayman CEO, Victor Corcoran says ‘Digicel takes great pleasure in recognizing and commending all Administrative Professionals in the Cayman Islands. It is through their hard work and unfaltering commitment that organizations succeed in their everyday activities. They continue to earn our admiration and respect; today we acknowledge and celebrate their invaluable contributions to all businesses island wide.’
