Mark your calendars!
This is a friendly reminder that National Receptionist Day is soon approaching. This year, the day of celebration and appreciation falls on Wednesday May 9, 2018.
National Receptionist Day was launched 27 years ago to celebrate the role of professional receptionists and the invaluable contributions they make to offices and organisations. Over the years, technology has changed the way receptionists do their jobs, and attitudes toward this crucial position have evolved for the better.
In fact, one of the motivations behind National Receptionist Day is to: “Promote pride and professionalism amongst receptionists for the important role they play within an organisation.”
As everyone knows by now, receptionists do so much more than answer phones. They serve as the central nervous system of an organisation. The job often entails organizing, scheduling, tracking, communicating, and on and on. A company relies heavily on the workings of their front desk staff for the smooth operation of their business.
Every year, receptionists around the world receive a token of appreciation. It might be flowers, gift cards, or perhaps they get treated to lunch.
This could be the year you set yourself apart from the crowd and get your receptionist something unique, meaningful…and delicious! Totally Chocolate has a wide range of thoughtful edible gifts ideas for someone as special and important as your office or organisation’s receptionist.
Stay tuned. Next month, we’ll reveal a list of our favorite Gift Ideas for Receptionist Day.
