The Administrative Professionals Day is on the Wednesday of the last full Administrative Professionals Week (April 25 in 2012).
Administrative Professional’s Day is also known as Secretary’s Day. It has become a time for recognition of those employees who are assistants and secretaries that work with you to make your life easier! Often in the hustle and bustle of work, we don’t get the opportunity to thank those who work so diligently to keep things running smoothly.
Administrative Professionals’ Day
Administrative Professionals’ Day highlights the important role of administrative professionals in all sectors of the modern economy worldwide. Since 1952, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals Week. Today, it is one of the largest workplace observances outside of employee birthdays and major holidays.
Administrative Professionals Week
The Administrative Professionals Week is observed annually during the last full week of April.
The name of the National Secretaries Associations was changed to the International Association of Administrative Professionals. All in all, it was created mainly to service two purposes. First, there was a need to get more people interested in becoming secretaries. Second, the International Association of Administrative Professionals wanted secretaries to be recognized for the assistance that they provided to various businesses and organizations.
