They’re overworked and under appreciated. National Receptionists Day on May 13 (second Wednesday each May) is our chance to show these men and women that we truly know who runs the office.
Receptionists have countless responsibilities depending on where they work. But they often act as the boss’ gatekeeper. So make sure you treat them well — especially if you have an important meeting with the CEO. Reports of bad behavior in the lobby tend to make their way to the executive suites. Don’t have an attitude when dealing with them.
Who knows? They might just become the CEO one day.
