“You only get one chance to make a good first impression, and yours may be in the hands of the receptionist.”

Harvey Mackay

Receptionists - often underrated but they have a very important role in every company. Their role is being celebrated annually on National Receptionists Day. As this year it is the 9th of May, we decided to take a look at some of their everyday duties and responsibilities and what features must the perfect reception desk have.

Receptionists handle a variety of administrative tasks like:

    1. Greeting and welcoming visitors at the front desk and directing them appropriately –

      design of reception must highlight the receptionist and lead the customer directly to him. Zig-Zag reception desk, with its RGBW LED lighting system and impressive design, will leave no doubt where to head.

    1. Answering and forwarding incoming phone calls - receiving and sending email –

      a place designed to store a computer, phone and other equipment is often a necessity nowadays. Linea desk is available with optional, lowered monitor shelf and will will meet this requirement with ease.

    1. Receive, store and distribute daily mail, receipts and invoices -

      receptionists have to store a lot of different things while still making sure the reception area is still neat and tidy. Our office cabinets are designed to do just that and perfectly match with our reception desks.

    1. Complete procedures when visitors arrive –

      some procedures require filling up forms and documents. In these cases it is important the reception desk has a place to do that. That is why the Valde reception desk is available with low top configurations also meeting ADA compliance standards.

    1. Store documents –

      some things are not to be seen by strangers. Important documents are one of them. Zen reception desk - with its locking drawer will make them totally safe.

As you can see it is a lot of requirements to cover. With our wide range of products it is easy to make receptionists job much easier.
