In the early 1950's, the United States economy was recovering from World War II, and companies were growing rapidly. There was a shortage of secretaries, and so a nationwide initiative was implemented to encourage women to join the workforce in that capacity. Part of the movement was to reward the workers once a year, and Secretaries Day was born. Today we call them Administrative Professionals, and although the career field is female dominated - only about 5% are male - the opposite was true when the day was established.
What hasn't changed is how indispensable they are - from managing appointments to answering the phones with finesse, from making sure the paperwork gets filed to calming down a feisty customer, our admin pros are valued members of our team.
