In the work environment most bosses have some kind of assistant or secretary. Today is the official day that they are suppose to recognize how much that person helps the boss. If you are the boss and have someone assisting you then let them know how much you appreciate their help.
But if you are not the boss or even if you do not work in an office take this day to think about all the people who help you with your administrative responsibilities. This doesn’t have to be just work related. There are administrative responsibilities in running every home.
Who pays the bills? Who schedules the doctor’s appointments or calls the plumber when needed? Who takes care of the taxes or at least gathers the papers needed for the accountant? Who files important papers in the file drawer so they can be found when needed? The list goes on and on.
In my household I take care of most of the administrative duties. So today I’m going to pat myself on the back. Who knows, maybe when I go out later I’ll buy myself some fresh flowers!
Here are a couple of sites to check out about Administrative Professionals Day.
