Oh, Father's Day, that day where we all try valiantly to envision---and then find---the perfect gift for dad.

It can feel like the hero's journey to discover the perfect present on Father's Day, but it's worth it when we do for the smile it brings to our dads' faces. Here at Norfolk Florist, we have a solution for the tricky path toward giving something great---and yes, it's green. Read More about The Perfect Plant For Dad

In 1958, an employee at State Farm Insurance in Chicago had an idea. Patricia Bays Haroski felt that if she could succeed in establishing a national day to celebrate the relationship between employers and their employees, that we would see more productive and happier workplaces. Her efforts resulting in National Boss's Day, which became official in 1962 and is currently not only observed in the United States, but also in Australia, India and South Africa.
At Norfolk Florist, we see every day the importance of recognizing those who encourage, mentor, inspire and promote others. A great boss does all of these things, and October 16 is the day to tell them how much you appreciate them. Read More about Recognizing a Great Boss

How do you show your appreciation?
Research proves that the more that a company's employees are recognized for their dedication to their job, the more motivated they are to be productive and to positively contribute. The results are compelling - team members who are commended for their hard work have higher morale, are less likely to call in sick or use personal days, and more likely to commit to the company over the long term. In other words, your team members become even more valuable assets to your organization when you create a culture of appreciation.
Administrative Professionals Week is a yearly opportunity to officially recognize those whose work is instrumental in the success of your business every day.
