Get out your calendar, you’ll need to write this down. May 8th, 2019 is International Receptionist Day! Each year, on the second Wednesday in May, we celebrate those who make our work possible. There are over 1,053,700 receptionists in the U.S. alone and growing!1 Their roles vary from greeting clients to distributing correspondence and keeping updated records. Whether they prefer to be called receptionist, front end manager, or customer service assistant, don’t forget to tell him or her “thank you” this year in May.

Reasons We Appreciate Our Receptionists

 1. They ensure a wonderful experience for clients and customers.

Receptionists are often the first interaction the customer has with your company. Their warm smile and positive attitude paired with a professional name tag make them stand out with each customer they meet.

2. Receptionists enhance professionalism in the workplace.

Whether it’s making sure the company looks polished, displaying exquisite etiquette or maintaining their poise, receptionists lead by example.

3. They keep the business running efficiently.

Organization can make or break your ability to succeed in the workplace. Receptionists are experts on your company and will ensure clients and customers find what they need.

4. They enthusiastically support clients and employees.

They know how to answer every question your clients have. They provide information to keep customers happy and returning. When an employee needs assistance, your receptionists offers it with a smile.

5. We would be lost without our receptionists!

Receptionists have an impressive ability to adapt! When the internet or phone lines are down, orders aren’t being shipped on time or any other common workplace issue arises, your receptionist helps maintain a positive interaction with your customer until things are resolved. Receptionists represent the companies they work for, not just with a smile and warm welcome, but by keeping the workplace in order.

 

 

Show your receptionist you care

A verbal “thank you” goes a long way, but on a special occasion like National Receptionist Day, you’ll want to offer more. Without the support of your front office staff, you might not be where you are today. Even though we are appreciative of our receptionists every day, we might not show it. So, on National Receptionist Day, surprise him or her with a customizable wall plate or full color desk block. Custom name plates offer a commemorative way to set your receptionist’s name apart, and they help customers feel at ease as soon as they enter your place of business.
