  1. Zoom Happy Hour – Download our AP Week Zoom background (view instructions on how to upload to zoom) and share with your employees for a Zoom Happy Hour Celebration. Make this Zoom Meeting special by inviting a performer or a fun virtual class.
  2. Provide theme-related gifts to your employees – View suggested gift items such as the Light Bulb Thank You Keychain, Light Bulb Chocolate, Light Bulb Light-Up Cup, and more. 
  3. Give your employees extra time off – Whether letting the whole team have a day off during AP Recognition Week or awarding time off that they can use later, your employees will be sure to feel appreciated.
  4. Send gift cards to your employees – Give gift cards for restaurants, grocery stores, general gift cards, or gift cards from local businesses which is also a good way to support your local community during the pandemic.
  5. Buy lunch via a food delivery service – An easy, low-contact way to provide lunch to your team.

Celebrated the second week of October, AP Recognition Week is organized annually by The Institute of Financial Operations to honor the men and women in Accounts Payable and their dedication, drive, and accomplishments as financial operations professionals.

Throughout the US and Canada, AP Recognition week is celebrated by members and customers of The Institute with lunches, award ceremonies, special events, games, gift exchanges, etc. We encourage Account Payable Professionals from all industries to participate by showing appreciation to their employees and colleagues.
