Administrative Professionals – Thank You!

Today is the day to thank the over-worked, and sometimes under-paid, administrative professionals. 

In Dolly Parton’s song ‘9 to 5′ we’re reminded of how secretaries felt many years ago.  “Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’! Barely gettin’ by, it’s all takin’ and no givin’. They just use your mind and you never get the credit, it’s enough to drive you crazy, if you let it!”  Thankfully things have changed significantly, since Dolly’s song about a male chauvinist boss who steps all over his staff.

Today, we encourage you to say thank-you to the backbone of your workplace, the entire team of professionals that help get the job done.  This includes office assistants, secretaries, coordinators, specialists, and office managers.

Administrative Professionals Day was originally organized in 1952 as “National Secretaries Week” by the National Secretaries Association (now known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals) in conjunction with public relations executive Harry Klemfuss and a consortium of office product manufacturers. It was established as an effort to recognize secretaries for their contributions in the workplace, and to attract people to secretarial/administrative careers.

By the way, if your boss forgets you today, try playing this game to let out your frustration.  “Shoot Your Boss: 9 to 5 On-Line Game”
