Administrative Professionals Day (Secretaries Day) is the day executives recognize the work of secretaries, and other administrative support professionals. However, these are precisely the people who often are given the task of organizing and keeping the executive’s schedule updated. Every year at this time, as a by-product of the holiday, these individuals are put in an unenviable predicament. Marking the calendar can possibly be viewed as a self-serving act. Not marking the calendar can lead to their bosses’ embarrassment. In an effort to help our administrative professional friends and our executives, Starbright has launched an awareness campaign. This blog as well as our other cyber communication means at our disposal are being applied to ease the burden placed on administrative professionals.
Administrative Professionals Day (Secretaries Day) is observed on the Wednesday of the last full week of April, this year the day is April 27. National Secretaries Week was created in 1952 through the efforts of Harry F. Klemfuss, a New York publicist and honorary member of the Florist hall of fame (second part- kidding). In 1955, the observance date of National Secretaries Week was moved to the last full week of April. The name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week in 1981, and became Administrative Professionals Week in 2000. In the U.S. the holiday is often celebrated by taking the staff out to lunch or a gift of a beautiful floral arrangement enjoyed by all.
The secret language of flowers was created in Victorian times when etiquette was prohibitive of voicing one’s emotions. Accordingly flowers were given hidden meanings. Floral gifts given to administrative professionals on April 27 contain no hidden meaning. The message is clear and for all the office to see: “Thank You!”
