Although Administrative Professionals Day is not considered a holiday on the calendar, it is still widely celebrated in the United States and around the world. The day was created by the National Secretaries Association in 1952; in response to the need for such jobs to filled during and after World War II. The name of the founding organization has evolved over the years to embrace changes in the workplace and society and is now known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals. The group’s mandate has grown as well, and today has expanded to provide continuing education, set standards of excellence throughout the industry, and connect members globally.
The annual day of recognition is intended to thank administrative assistants, receptionists and other support workers in business; these professionals are often the oil in the machine, and play an essential role in keeping a company running smoothly, yet often don’t get he honor they deserve.
