They provide professional support by keeping things running: tracking details and scheduling appointments, answering calls, filing and storing important information, delivering the results needed to ensure that business gets done. When resources are stretched, they find solutions. When roadblocks appear, they build workarounds. They ensure that projects end on time and under budget.



"With almost 9 million Americans working in administrative support roles, you'd think employers would understand that candy and flowers are not enough thanks," says PSRP chair Ruby Newbold, president of the Detroit Association of Educational Office Employees. "Instead of tokens, what administrative staff prefer is respect and professional development."
Provide opportunities for them to learn and grow.


Since 1952, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals Week. Today, it is one of the largest workplace observances outside of employee birthdays and major holidays.
 
Today, there are more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants working in the United States, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, and 8.9 million people working in various administrative support roles. More than 475,000 administrative professionals are employed in Canada. Millions more administrative professionals work in offices all over the world.
