Happy Administrative Professionals Day

Everyone has some sort of leader. At my workplace we have an Administrator that leads the show and has been at it for quite some time. She has wore many different hats and has filled in whenever and wherever needed. Administrators like her should be celebrated. So if you know an administrator that works hard at her job here are a few great ideas:

  • flowers always brighten up someones day and desk 
  • Take them out to lunch or have lunch brought in for them always a great treat
  • a massage is always great to help ease up the stress of the job
  • give a gift certificate for a mani and pedi again a great stress reliever
  • I do not have the power but if I did I would offer my administrator a paid day off they deserve it

Administrative Professionals Day is observed in many places around the world. It all started during World War II when there was increased need for skilled administrative personnel. The national secretaries association was established in the U.S. The association would help recognize the work they did, support their development and open the door so more could join the workplace. The name of the association changed a few different times and now is known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals.

The IAAP set standards in tasks, qualifications and responsibilities of the members. They continue to provide education and training so that their member standards will be recognized as excellence on global perspective. The original name of this holiday was National Secretaries week and it was observed starting in 1952. In 2000 the name was changed to Administrative Professionals Day as the job titles had seemed to change and responsibilities had expanded.
