Also known as: "Administrative Professional's Day" or "Admin Day", this is the day that we celebrate the amazing support provided by dedicated staff professionals in offices all over the world. It's a day to sing the praises of these unsung heroes who spend their days (and some nights) up to their necks composing emails, replying to text messages, and questioning why they learned to take shorthand.
As office staff's responsibilities increase exponentially to keep pace with our more technically advanced work places, so too does the very name of this "unofficial secular holiday" change, in an attempt to acknowledge the ever-increasing scope these jobs entail.
You know this. Your work place would be a very lonely place with just you, the boss, trying to run it alone. Imagine: Answering your own phones?!? Which button do you push to put someone on hold? Damn, I hope they call back! What's the time difference between here and Tempe, Arizona? How the do you spell "Tempe"? Help, Siri, help!!!! Yikes!
The idea of Administrative Assistant's Day began with Mary Barrett and C. King Woodbridge. They thought up the "holiday" while serving on a council that was trying to cope with a national shortage of skilled office workers. Nowadays, they'd just log on to LinkeIn!. But together with Victor Toldoya, they created a way for business owners to say "thank you" to their staff.
What better way to celebrate than by sending one of our specially created Cards just for this occasion?! After all, it's one of the few in-office celebrations that doesn't involve sheet cake! So, tell your staff you appreciate them and send them all a Rubber Chicken eCard.
