Secretary's Day South Africa

But today, women are no longer bound by the gender inequality present in the 50s. Whether it may be an administrative assistant, executive assistant, PA, receptionist or bookkeeper, these supportive staff (male or female) are key to a successful business. Celebrate these fantastic people this Secretary’s Day in South Africa.
