Administrative Professionals Day 2019

When Is Administrative Professionals Day?

Administrative Professionals Week

is always the last full week in April.

Administrative Professionals Day,

once referred to as Secretaries Day, is always on the Wednesday of that week.

Administrative Professionals Day 2019 will fall on April 24.

The IAAP has sponsored the honorary holiday since its creation in 1952. In today's modern office, Administrative Professionals Day is the most widely celebrated workplace event with the exception of major holidays and birthdays of employees.

The original idea for the holiday started with then president of the NSA (National Secretaries Association), Mary Barrett, and president of Dictaphone Corporation C. King Woodbridge. Both served on a council designated to address a shortage nationwide for skilled secretarial and office employees.

Secretaries Day

Over the years, the term Secretaries Day was changed to encompass the ever changing and expanding field. So many new job titles, responsibilities, and tasks developed and were assigned to a vast pool of individuals who provided services more in tune with administrative support.

Employers utilize many ways to honor and recognize their hard working assistants and administrative staff during Administrative Professionals Week, including gift-giving, social events, luncheons, flowers, expense paid trips, and sometimes even time off from work.

Administrative Professionals Week

During this celebrated Administrative Professionals Week, many sponsored events are offered so that employers can allow their staff to attend seminars and other training events to enhance and build their skills.

Motivating administrative staff to learn and grow in their field helps build their curriculum vita experience, and it also helps them provide more value in the workplace to their existing and future employers. It's a win-win for everyone.
