Each year National Receptionists’ Day is observed on the second Wednesday in May. National Receptionists’ Day was created to give recognition to receptionists and the valuable contributions they make to the companies they work.
Receptionists are responsible for providing an excellent first impression to all customers, in person, and on the telephone. Their customer service skills play a vital role in each company’s image.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than a million receptionists in the United States.
