How did this holiday come to exist? According to Wikipedia, “During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to Depression-era birth-rate decline and booming post-war business.”

Founded in 1942, the National Secretaries Association “was formed to recognize the contributions of administrative personnel to the economy, support their personal development, and to help attract workers to the administrative field.”

Over the past 77 years, the duties and responsibilities of administrative professionals have changed dramatically. The impact and the significant contributions by all administrative professionals are felt around the world – from global corporations to small businesses on a local level.

Please give a big shout out to any administrative professional you know!

And from all of us at Cadre, a huge THANK YOU to our employees – present and past – for all of your contributions and successes today, and every day!
