A workplace is made significantly more enjoyable when there is a great boss at the helm. From the employer who provides extensive benefits, to the supervisor who encourages people to excel in their job, to the department leader who has assembled a winning team - a good boss is one who creates a dynamic, positive and fun environment. Since adults spend nearly one-third of their waking hours at work, we truly appreciate someone like this in the workplace.
City Line Florist has the plants, flowers and gifts you'll need to recognize Trumbull's best boss on National Boss's Day. (October 16) Read More about Celebrating Trumbull’s Best Boss »

In the early 1950's, the United States economy was recovering from World War II, and companies were growing rapidly. There was a shortage of secretaries, and so a nationwide initiative was implemented to encourage women to join the workforce in that capacity. Part of the movement was to reward the workers once a year, and Secretaries Day was born. Today we call them Administrative Professionals, and although the career field is female dominated - only about 5% are male - the opposite was true when the day was established.
What hasn't changed is how indispensable they are - from managing appointments to answering the phones with finesse, from making sure the paperwork gets filed to calming down a feisty customer, our admin pros are valued members of our team. This month, we have the chance to tell them so. City Line Florist has a collection of floral designs, desktop plants, and succulents that will beautifully convey your gratitude.
