Wednesday, April 23, is Administrative Professionals Day. On this day, we take the time to thank those who help make the offices run smoothly: secretaries, administrative assistants, executive assistants, office managers, and the many others who fall under the administrative professional umbrella. These professionals do a lot to make our lives easier. Here are just a few things we have them to thank for.
They handle client scheduling and can often deal with some of the basic questions clients have without bothering you.
They answer the phones. It sounds like a small thing, but you’d be surprised how many phone calls you’d have to field if you didn’t have an administrative professional.
They deal with your scheduling. Today, many use computer programs to see your schedule and add items to it. Then they make sure you know what’s going on so you can prepare for each meeting.
They’re usually the office expert on using that giant copier/printer/fax machine/super complicated piece of technology that seems to always jam or have some other problem.
They keep all the records for the office and can usually find whatever piece of information you need within a few minutes.
They keep things fun! Your office manager makes sure birthdays are recognized, holiday parties are organized, and that the office looks good.
They make sure you always have the tools and supplies you need to do your job. They’re the keepers of the supply closet, and they’ll make sure you’ve got plenty of those pens you like and the post-it notes you use.
These are just a few things your administrative professionals do for you and for the office as a whole. Be sure to thank them on April 23! We can help by providing some amazing administrative professionals day flowers and gifts in Fort Worth, TX.
