…But what you can do for your admin.
Administrative professionals are the glue holding many offices and teams together so it is time to give thanks to these incredible professionals that help to make your job a success.
Administrative Professionals Week falls on the last full week of April every year and Administrative Professionals Day on that Wednesday. This year it is Wednesday, April 22. The week was started in 1952 by a New York publicist along with the National Secretaries Association (now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals). He wanted to encourage people to consider careers in the secretarial and administrative fields as well as celebrate the hard work of administrative professionals.
Over the years the week has morphed from National Secretaries Week 1952-1980, to Professional Secretaries Week 1981-1999 and finally to Administrative Professionals Week in 2000. Today it is one of the most celebrated workplace observances and is recognized worldwide.
This Administrative Professionals Day don’t forget to thank these important people in your lives. Personalized chocolate bars and custom stickers for HERSHEY’S KISSES candy are excellent choices, or sometimes even a simple “thank you” or “you’re appreciated” will suffice. Whichever way you choose to say thanks don’t let the hard work of these special individuals go unnoticed.
