Administrative Professionals Day is right around the corner. On Wednesday April 24 this year, we will recognize and celebrate over 4 million administrative professionals, office assistants, and other office professionals for their important contributions to the workplace.
In lieu of this important day, we are sharing its history and will help you come up with a few ideas to reward and recognize your administrative professionals.
Every April we celebrate Administrative Professionals Day, a day to honor the work of the support staff on our team. The holiday has its origins in World War II when administrative professionals were scarce, and a celebration was required not only to honor those occupying positions, but to attract young talent to the profession.
The Society for Human Resource Management defines employee engagement as “the connection and commitment employees exhibit toward an organization, leading to higher levels of productive work behaviors.” The reason employee engagement is critical for organizational success and growth is due to its connection to employee satisfaction and retention.
