National Administrative Professionals Week – Monday, April 25 to Friday, April 29
Administrative professionals are an essential component who keep businesses going. Every year, on the last Wednesday and last full week of April, we celebrate Administrative Professionals Day and Administrative Professionals Week to show these amazing professionals how valuable they are to our organizations. Administrative gift ideas range from a simple selection of coffee cards to merchandise or even experiential options. You curate the selection and let your administrative professionals select what best suits their way to celebrate. Sending a personalized message and gift is a perfect way to show your appreciation to administrative professionals any time of year.
During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to the Depression-era birth rate decline and the booming post-war economy. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), founded in 1942, was formed to recognize the contributions of administrative personnel to the economy, support their personal development, and help attract workers to the administrative field. Key figures who created the holiday were the president of the IAAP, and public relations account executives at Young & Rubicam, Harry F. Klemfuss, and Daren Ball.
The official period of celebration was first proclaimed by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles W. Sawyer to be held June 1–7 in 1952 with Wednesday, June 4 designated as National Administrative Professionals Day. In 1955, the observance date of Week was moved to the last full week of April, with Wednesday now designated as Administrative Professionals Day. Administrative Professionals Week encompasses a wide range of job titles for administrative support staff in the modern economy. The week-long observance was created for organizations with large administrative staff headcount.
