San Ramon, California (EastBayDaily) — Greeting Card Universe, the world’s largest greeting card store, announces its popular collection of 635 original and hard to find Administrative Professionals Day cards.
Originally called Secretary’s Day and created by publicist Harry F. Klemfuss in 1952 as a way of encouraging more women to join the workplace, the unofficial holiday is observed annually in the U.S. on the fourth Wednesday in April. This year, marking its 60th anniversary, Administrative Professionals Day falls on April 25th and is also a week long observation as Administrative Professionals Week.
“Administrative professionals are the glue that holds a company together,” says Mindy Rosso-Gaemi, Community Manager at Greeting Card Universe. “According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants, and 8.9 million administrative support personnel, are employed in this country alone.”
Over the last sixty years, Administrative Professionals Day has become the largest workplace observance celebrated globally, often by managers giving their administrative staff tokens of gratitude like flowers, time off, gifts or gift certificates, candy, or lunch at a restaurant, and, of course, a paper greeting card for the occasion.
“Administrative professionals have demanding, challenging jobs, and play a critical role in every office,” says Rosso-Gaemi. “These hardworking individuals deserve the special day of appreciation. With Administrative Professionals Day just around the corner, it’s important to reach out and acknowledge the vital part that support personnel play in a company’s success. As well as for similar upcoming holidays for unsung heroes and professionals that are the cornerstones of our communities are Nurses Day and Teacher Appreciation Week.”
