Celebrate Your Office Heroes This Administrative Professionals Day

Administrative Professionals

Thank the important people in your organisation that work tirelessly behind the scenes this Friday 3rd of May 2024 on Administrative Professionals Day. It’s a great time to celebrate some of the more unsung heroes around the office, from assistants to secretaries, receptionists and office managers. While support staff can slip under the radar, we’d all be lost without them. Here at ICMI, we know firsthand how important these people are to deliver great services to both our speakers and clients. 

Without our proactive and organised admin folk, our workplaces would be chaos, from unscheduled meetings and appointments to buried emails, lost records and endless paperwork. So this Administrative Professionals Day, why not celebrate with an event featuring one of our inspiring guest speakers.


How to Celebrate Your Admin Staff


Thanking and celebrating your admin staff is a big part of Administrative Professionals Day. This can come in the form of gift giving, speeches showing gratitude to particular individuals and celebrating with a special lunch or drinks. The celebration helps foster a more positive work environment, where every team member feels valued and motivated to excel in their roles.

However, another important aspect to the day is listening to their perspectives and giving them a chance to share their views on the ups and downs of their careers. Depending on the industry, it’s also a great time to offer these team members professional development and networking opportunities.


Inspire Your Team With an ICMI Guest Speaker


At ICMI, there’s no shortage of great business and leadership speakers who can reinforce the importance of admin staff to the success of their enterprises.
