Why Administrative Professionals’ Week Matters


Last Updated on

Administrative Professionals’ Week is happening NOW, and I’m here to share 3 reasons YOU should celebrate! This holiday was founded in 1952 by what is NOW known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals. Although the way people celebrate it has evolved over the years, its purpose is STILL the same – recognizing the amazing administrative professionals in YOUR life for ALL their hard work and dedication!

Even though you probably ALREADY show your appreciation throughout the year, this week is YOUR opportunity to REALLY take the time to thank your administrative team. Here are 3 reasons celebrating Administrative Professionals’ Week in your office is SUCH a great idea:

  1. Employee recognition goes a LONG way. According to a Globoforce blog about employee recognition, the number one reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated. Administrative Professionals’ Week is the PERFECT opportunity to recognize your team for going above and beyond, day in and day out.
  1. Your administrative team is the glue that holds your office together! Think about it… what would happen to your office without them?! They are truly the masters of it all – multitasking, organization, communication skills, handling stress… the list goes on. Take this week to REALLY recognize EVERYTHING they do to keep things running smoothly. And… most importantly…
  1. They are more than just a title – they’re a BIG part of your team and work family. They’re here for you through it all, so it’s important to make sure they know how much you appreciate it! Things wouldn’t be the same without them in the office, and this week is ALL about letting them know that. After all, everyone deserves to have some time in the spotlight!
