Today, 21st April 2022, is Administrative Professionals Day. The day to acknowledge the work of administrators, receptionists, secretaries, Personal and Executive Assistants, Client Services and many others working in professional administrative roles.
Originally started back in 1952 as a way to encourage more women to become secretaries (yes, we know!) the day was designed to promote the values and importance of the job that secretaries do.
Throughout the years the name and scope of the day has changed. It is now known as Administrative Professionals Day, covers a much wider range of roles and of course, it’s no longer just women the day or the field is aimed at!
Administration is core in all organisations and the requirements are often highly specialised but of course there are still some core skills that were probably just as valued back in 1952 as they are today and to mark this years’ day, we thought we’d have a look at just some of these , demonstrated by some well-known and well-loved fictional admin professionals
