National Receptionists Day History

The Day was founded by National Receptionists Association.

How to Celebrate National Receptionists Day 2020?

You can take the below-mentioned ideas to celebrate the day.

Decorate their desk

All you have got to do is collect some balloons, bright streamers, confetti and some hanging lanterns. Call out your party planning employees to come to the office half-hour early and don the desk of your receptionist in celebratory attire. Customizing the decoration according to the receptionist’s style will surely bring a smile to his or her face.

Invite all the employees

Since the day is celebrated to recognize and reward the receptionists for the work they put in, everyone at the office must join in on the celebration. Most of the time their work goes unnoticed or underappreciated, so if everyone joins in on the celebratory bandwagon, it will surely make the receptionist feel glad.

Express your appreciation in writing

Put out how much you value and appreciate their work in a thank you note. Making it personal will do a lot more than you think.

Reward them with what they want

Give them a reward-it can be some gifts, a vacation trip or anything that they truly want.

Why did we Love to Celebrate National Receptionists Day

The receptionist performs a lot of works in a single day. They constantly juggle the entire office, set appointments, and keep a record of the filings and myriad of other official tasks. They get so used to the drill expected by their office that many times they seem like mind readers as they finish the task even before asking. So, this day is a wonderful opportunity to show our appreciation to these people who are like the muscles of the office.
