Employee Day: is your employer celebrating you today?

In many European countries, Secretary’s Day or Employee’s Day is celebrated on the third Thursday of April. The holiday of every silent force in the office was first celebrated in 1952 in the United States. The original motivation behind Secretary Day was to recognize the important role that secretaries played in supporting executives and running business operations efficiently. The day quickly grew in popularity and spread to other countries around the world, including our country.

In many companies and organizations, celebrating Secretary’s Day or Employee’s Day has become a tradition, which contributes to corporate culture and strengthens the feeling of togetherness. It provides an opportunity for managers and colleagues to show their gratitude for the dedicated and often invisible efforts of secretarial staff.

Florists have been asking for days to reserve bouquets in time, because on Secretary Day itself they are very busy: “Today we deliver to a number of secretariats, for example those of KU Leuven, UZ Leuven and Heilig Hart hospital and then we also deliver to companies such as SBB , Boerenbond, Volvo Lacom, Mediclinic… and some employees work from home, those bouquets are then delivered there. Our drivers leave with three vans at 8 am,” they say at the flower shop Stuifmeel & Stamper.

Today, 10,000 flower pots will be distributed at UZ Leuven, each staff member will receive a flower.
