The last full week of April is Administrative Professionals Week also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day, of which every Wednesday of that week is Administrative Professionals Day recognizing the important contributions that administrative professionals make each year to our economy and work place.
Before there was an Administrative Professionals Day, there was a National Secretaries Day, created in 1952. We’ve come a long way since then, and so have the job and celebration.
This day of recognition has gone through several makeovers to reflect changing administrative titles and responsibilities in the modern workforce. While its moniker has changed, the purpose of Administrative Professionals Day remains the same: to celebrate and shed light on the many contributions of these devoted and valued administrative professionals.
With remote and hybrid teams now the norm, recognizing the efforts of your support staff is more important than ever. During the pandemic, many administrative professionals have been instrumental to the teams they support, tackling new challenges and exhibiting grace under pressure while helping employees stay connected, engaged and productive.
Are there team members you’d like to honor? Even with many employees working remotely, there are still ways to celebrate the administrative professionals you regularly work with. The International Association of Administrative Professionals, one of the original sponsors of Administrative Professionals Day, offers a listing of events to celebrate your support team. Every year, this day of recognition falls on the Wednesday of the last full week of April.
