First launched in 1991 in the US, National Receptionists’ Day is growing bigger each year and is now celebrated on the second Wednesday in May by companies around the world. As the lead sponsor of National Receptionists’ Day in the UK, Rapport is helping its founders raise awareness of this special day to a wider audience across both the hotel and corporate worlds whilst celebrating the role of its own professional receptionists.

As well as helping develop the dedicated website - www.nationalreceptionistsday.com - Rapport is planning a range of activities to celebrate its receptionists, from competitions to celebratory cakes. Managers at Rapport are also embracing the ‘back to the front’ initiative and will be working as receptionists for the day alongside their teams. The day will culminate with an evening event where teams can come together, celebrate and share their stories about the day.

In line with the Rapport value of “Walking Tall”, the aims of National Receptionists’ Day are to foster recognition of the importance of the receptionist’s role, to promote pride and professionalism amongst receptionists for the important role that they play within an organisation, and to give receptionists an opportunity to share stories and link up with other colleagues.

Greg Mace, Managing Director of Rapport said: “Our receptionists are usually our guests’ first point of contact with our clients’ organisations and we appreciate how hard they work to ensure that they make a brilliant first impression. Supporting National Receptionists’ Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate the great work they do and to raise their profile within our operations. We hope that every single receptionist who takes part will feel proud about the important job they do.”

In addition to Rapport, a number of other leading organisations are also supporting the day through sponsorship and their details can be found on the website.
