Happy Administrative Professionals Week!

If you are an Administrative Assistant, you know how important you are. You also probably know how the role has evolved over the years. You no longer take messages and schedule meetings; you are an integral team member. You’ve got organizational skills, communication skills, presentation skills, technical skills and more.

Manpower took a recent look at the role and confirmed what we all suspected: A good admin is hard to find. According to this recent survey, Manpower uncovered some interesting facts about today’s Admins:

  • 98% of employers surveyed see the best admins differently than 5-10 years ago. Top reasons include additional technical skills and strategic thinking.
  • 71% view admins as integral team members/leaders
  • 85% agree that would not be easy to find a good admin if needed

If you are an Admin and proud of it, Manpower wants to know. Manpower is collecting stories from Admins on their Facebook page. Share why you are proud of your role. There are prizes to be won!
