That perfect X Mas gift for the assistant
 
Struggling here a little - if you have a assistant at your work place, you know good and well they put up with more than the normal generalist thats on the payroll. My assistant has worked directly for me over the past 7 years and in my eyes, she cannot be replaced.
Over the past years, I feel as though I have done a really good job with gifts ranging Christmas bonuses to free mini vacations not to mention the small personal gift boxes.

As i know the clock is ticking to when Santa arrives, I would be interested in what you feel is the perfect gift for your assistant.

As always - thanks and tight lines...

When did we stop calling them secretaries? Was that about the time waiters became servers, and stewardesses became flight attendants?

We need pictures first before we can make a recommendation. If she is really hot get her one of each of these. http://www.fredericks.com/lingerie/l...efault,sc.html :jk:
Really though cash is king. Tell her how much you appreciate her and tell her you hope she spends it on herself.

The job of a secretary was mostly related to correspondence, such as the typing out of letters, maintaining files of paper documents, etc

In an office today there is no need for designated "secretaries" to take notes, type things up, file documents etc. Everyone can do these tasks on their own.

Administrative assistants, have the job of basically managing the day to day activities of the office. I know at my job our admin books conference room space, organizes our training, orders offices supplies, is in charge of all of our safety and evacuation procedures, is in charge of setting up office space for new employees, and pretty much anything else you can think of under the sun.

I would think calling her a secretary is demeaning because her job is not a typists or to file paper work, she basically runs the office.

Ask her to help you pick out a gift for another woman, roughly her age. Make the person up if need be.

Tell her the budget and see what she suggests...and hey presto!

Then do the same next year but don't give her the gift. Gotta keep 'em on their toes.
