Take the Lead: April 27, 2016

While the name may have changed over the years, the last week of April has been dedicated to celebrating Administrative Professionals since 1955, with the Wednesday being observed as Administrative Professionals’ Day. The holiday is meant to recognize the work that administrative support personnel perform across wide-ranging job titles and responsibilities. Some welcome the dedicated day for the recognition of their work while others have raised objections to the holiday. No matter your views, it is unquestionable that businesses could not run without their committed administrative staff.
