Happy Administrative Professionals Day!

Posted on Apr 22, 2020

Today is April 22nd. You know what that means? Well, if not then, let us tell you.

UNIFORCE Staffing Solutions would like to wish all administrative support staff a very “Happy Administrative Professionals Day.” This celebration applies to everyone, especially those working in the healthcare and essential business sector.

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary’s Day was created  in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam.

The name of this special day has changed and evolved over the past few decades. Yet, the importance of recognizing these vital individuals  has continued to grow. The two new terms in use today are: “Administrative Professionals” and “Executive Administrators (or Admins)”. The two names sometimes mean different roles and responsibilities in different companies and organizations. Both are broader terms, that encompass more positions than the original “Secretary” role.

The most common ways of recognizing your Administrative Professional(s) today are:

  • Flowers
  • Cards, often with restaurant or shopping gift certificates
  • Take them to lunch 
  • Candies
  • Assorted Gift Baskets
