Food for Thought: The majority of administrative professionals are happier than their bosses (61% vs. 18%). Yup, it’s true! The survey was conducted by Staples in honor of National Administrative Professionals’ Day on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014. And for the second year in a row, a majority of respondents say the admin boosts employee morale and is a better team player than the boss. Who knew?
In fact, when it comes to who holds the most power in the office, the boss wins. But second in command is the admin, ahead of the chief financial officer and human resources director. Administrative Professionals are multi-talented, go above and beyond the duties of their position, and sometimes even assume the role of office “matchmaker.” Is there anything an admin can’t do? I think not!
“Staples is proud to recognize the great work being done by administrative professionals and the critical role they play in companies across the country,” said Mike Edwards, Staples executive vice president, merchandising. “National Administrative Professionals’ Day is an opportunity to thank these hard-working individuals for helping their businesses make more happen every day.”
