Admins - it's your week to be appreciated!

According to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), there are more than 475, 000 administrative professionals currently employed in Canada alone. They tell us on their website here that Administrative Professionals Week is one of the largest workplace observances - and they should know! The holiday was created in 1952 by one Mr. Harry F. Klemfuss, in conjunction with the National Secretaries Association - which has evolved over its 67 years into the IAAP.

Administrative assistants are some hard-working folks! Those of you who work with one, work as one, or just know one are (maybe painfully!) aware of this fact. They absolutely deserve a week to have their constant efforts and support recognized by the people around them. It's easy to take good colleagues for granted - in my opinion, that is just the way our brains work. When there's a problem, you'll know. But when everything runs smoothly, we forget it's doing just that for a reason!

So, a big shout-out and THANK YOU to the Admin Army out there, working long hours and being the backbones of their workplaces! Show them your gratitude, too! Check out our page with products specially created for your office gems, HERE.

Administrative Professionals Week runs from April 20th-24th inclusive, with Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday, April 22nd.
