The first official “Secretary’s week” started in June 1 – 7th, 1952, with Wednesday June 4th, being “Secretary’s Day”. It was introduced to increase awareness of the secretarial profession as there was a shortage of qualified secretaries. The celebration was soon moved to the last full week of April in 1955. It has remained there ever since, with Wednesday still being the focal point of the week.
For many years Frans’ enjoyed that busy Wednesday of Downtown businessmen happily buying flowers, to recognize their Secretary’s and Assistants hard work and loyalty.
In 2000 the name changed to “Administrative Professionals week” to recognize the vast range of skills and expertise that office support workers bring to business and government offices. No businesses run without support from many team members, lets continue to make this a day to celebrate and say “Thank You” to all our support workers and co-workers.
Who do you want to say “Thank you” to on Wednesday April 22nd, 2015??
