Happy Administrative Professionals Day

DISCOVER STAFFING would like to say "Thank You" to all of our employees for a job well done.

National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary's Day was created in 1952 through the work of Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam. His goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries. Using his skill and experience in public relations, Klemfuss, promoted the values and importance of the job of secretaries. In doing so, he also created the holiday in recognition of the importance of secretaries.

Today, the title is changing, but the recognition is equally important. The common term today is Administrative Professionals as the role has generally changed significantly since 1952, and for the better at that.
