About National Receptionists Day
Observed in Australia, Canada, UK and US on the second Wednesday in May, this is a day Of recognition for the front-line personnel in business. You only get one chance to make a good first impression and that is the unique job of a receptionist.
This day was inaugurated in 1991 by Jennifer Alexander to recognize the special role that receptionists play and to distinguish their skills from that of an admin or secretary.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there are over a million receptionists in the US, especially in legal and medical offices.
