Honoring the Best on Administrative Professionals Day
The Day Has Arrived
This is Administrative Professionals Week, and today is Administrative Professionals Day, a time when we take extra effort to recognize the staff that works so hard supporting us all year long. The entire week is dedicated to this recognition, but this is the day. Administrative staff members are critical to business operations. Let’s face it – our offices wouldn’t function without them. This goes far beyond maintaining calendars and greeting customers. Administrative professionals have their hands on the pulse of an organization.
Attention to detail is key as an office administrator, as many of the tasks on the to-do list involve multiple steps carried out over days or weeks. If an admin misses a step or lets part of the process slip through the cracks, the whole business can come to a screeching halt. Admins typically have dozens of plates spinning at once, taking care to keep them from crashing to the floor.
Successful administrative staff members also have an eye for process improvement. Through involvement in tasks like billing and procurement, administrative pros are able to spot ways to make things run smoother. They can make suggestions on how to streamline a process and/or save money because they are the ones in the weeds every day. Admins also often contribute to the business’s end game, offering insight to sales made and products and services offered.
What Clients Have to Say About Our Administrative Professionals
Over the past several weeks, we asked our clients to nominate administrative professionals for their excellent service and outstanding performance. Our branches are taking the time to honor those deserving individuals today in various ways on Administrative Professionals Day. Here is a taste of what clients had to say about our candidates.
“She has excelled in her role as our administrative professional so well. We wouldn’t be able to make it through every day without her and all of her help. She is a self-starter and a problem-solver which we need in our industry.”
“Her positive attitude and willingness to do any and all tasks with enthusiasm was wonderful. She was always very professional and felt confident to be proactive.”
“Always willing to lend a hand and NEVER complains. No task is beneath her. Consistently pleasant and one who is always willing to learn.”
Congrats to All
Ajilon would like to congratulate these individuals on a job well done! We recognize their hard work – and the hard work of all administrative professionals – and send our sincere thanks for all that they do. You are the stars of this celebratory week, and what you do does not go unnoticed.
