Administrative Professionals Week

Administrative Professionals Week, April 24th to 30th, is a great time to show your employees how much you appreciate all their hard work. What better way to express your gratitude than with promotional products from ePromos? According to the U.S. Department of Labor, today there are more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants working in the United States alone. Originally organized in 1952 as “National Secretaries Week”, this annual event was created by the National Secretaries Association (now known as International Association of Administrative Professionals), in an effort to recognize secretaries for their contributions in the workplace. The week was also initially created with the goal of attracting people to the profession. With the turn of the century came a name change from National Secretaries Week to Administrative Professionals Week. In 2000 it was decided that the name of the week should change in order to keep pace with the changing job titles and expanding responsibilities of today’s administrative workforce. Over the years Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances, with the event being celebrated worldwide.

Women’s Eye Health and Safety Month

Did you know that 2/3 of blindess and visual impairment occur in women? Did you also know that over 70% of legally blind people are women? That’s why women organized national Women’s Eye Health and Safety Month to promote the value of healthy eyesight. Since women, on average, live longer than men, they bear more of a burden on the healthcare system and need special care. Treatment and even prevention are readily available, so it is imperative to remain educated and examined by your doctor. Many causes of eyesight problems are preventable. These risk factors include smoking, poor diet, lack of excersise, UV rays and obesity. Honor this awareness month, by using promotional stress balls, promotional body part shaped stress balls, logo body part stress balls, and custom body part shaped stress balls.

Last Wednesday in April
Administrative Professionals Day

Show your secretaries, receptionists, and administrative assistants that you cherish the hard work they put in every day by celebrating Administrative Professionals Day. Previously known as National Secretaries Day, this holiday is observed on the last Wednesday in April. It’s a great time to show employees how much you care about them! History of the Holiday Administrative Professionals Day was created in 1952 by Harry F. Klemfuss of Young & Rubicam, who noticed the importance and value of this position to a company. Klemfuss handled the Dictaphone Corporation account for his advertising agency, and it was at this job where he used his skills to encourage more women to seek receptionist roles, and to promote the position’s significance. His arguments were heard by Mary Barrett and Victor Toldoya, presidents of what was then called the National Secretaries Association (today, this organization is known as The International Association of Administrative Professionals, or IAAP). Klemfuss and his fellow account executives proposed the idea for a week-long celebration, and National Secretaries Week was held for the first time that year. In 2000, the name was changed to Administrative Professionals Day to keep up with the ever changing responsibilities and job titles of the workforce. Today, this secular holiday is celebrated not only in the United States, but across the globe in countries including Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, and New Zealand.
