Gain recognition for the important function of receptionists in business as Directors of First Impressions and representatives of the company's image. Promote professionalism, pride, and community among these professionals.
National Receptionists Day
and National Receptionists Week:
May 14, 2014 is National Receptionists Day this year, the second Wednesday in May. We
created our organization to recognize the valuable contribution
receptionists make in business. Receptionists are front line personnel and are responsible for making a positive first impression for the company. "Recognize this untapped resource for your business marketing strategy", states Jennifer Alexander, Director of the Association. "They are your business boots-on-the-ground, company search engine." Ms. Alexander added.
Our association provides a community to share ideas and tips, provide motivational suggestions and ways to help generate the respect receptionists deserve. Receptionists are also the person at the front desk, information desk, concierge, telephone operators, maitre d', and many others who are the first to greet and welcome customers, clients and the public to the company. Their skills are of critical importance in creating and maintaining the image the company promotes in their sales and advertising efforts.
Please do not combine receptionist recognition with that for secretaries or administrative assistance unless they serve as the first line of contact for customers and the public. Receptionists are the front line personnel and professional Directors of First Impressions.
According to US Department of Labor Statistics there are one million receptionists in the US, growing at 14% annually. We want to launch a national image campaign for receptionists to increase their role as marketing representatives for the company.
