National Receptionists Day

May 11

National Receptionists Day - May

On the face of it, their work seems to be insignificant, but in reality, this profession is an important part of a structured mechanism, and their impeccable work determines the success of an organization. National Receptionists Day is celebrated on May 11. Polite and tactful treatment of a receptionist is the key to a quick pass to the boss’s office.

The The History

Employees working in reception perform representative functions (faces of a company) and secretary duties. The profession was developed in the second half of the XIX century: first the typewriter was invented, which created a demand for quick, competent typists. In 1942, the National Secretaries Association was founded, which opened up new opportunities for employees. Successful struggle for increased wages for female employees made the profession attractive in the eyes of potential applicants.

Interesting Facts

The holiday is celebrated on the second Wednesday of May.

  1. Receptionists are universal soldiers, chief assistants, and the right hand of the big boss. They make up schedules, organize/cancel meetings, create reminders, and make sure what is planned happens on time.
  2. Receptionists know management better than their bosses, sitting in their comfortable offices. They can notice the slightest changes of mood and choose the right moment to address various matters. This affects corporate climate and the attitude towards the rest of the staff.
  3. The best gift for receptionists is an extra day off in their crazy work schedule. This will be enough for them to regain strength and enthusiastically return to the office the next day, ready for anything.

A few dream of becoming receptionists in childhood, but in reality, this interesting job requires the manifestation of outstanding qualities: restraint, competence, sociability, ability to multitask, attentiveness, lack of fear of taking responsibility, loyalty, and efficient decision-making. Appreciate receptionists; congratulate them sincerely as a sign of gratitude!
