On April 24, 2018, the business world observes Administrative Professionals Day, which is part of Administrative Professionals Week. The observance was conceived of by Mary Barrett, a former president of the National Secretaries Association, an organization that was formed during World War II as a way to support receptionists and secretaries. The Gordon Boswell team loves to join in campaigns that honor the unsung heroes whose tireless efforts make our lives better in so many ways.
There are many people in our lives that we tend to take for granted – and at work, the dedicated work of administrative professionals is often overlooked. That is, of course, until they take a day off! Truth be told, our support personnel, whether answering phones or managing databases, are the ones that keep the business running smoothly day to day, which is why having an opportunity to thank them is so important! Administrative Professionals Week has evolved over the years – and grown to encompass not only secretaries but all of the people on our team, the unsung heroes that we could not do without.
