It’s said that love makes the world go-around, in my mind that equates to puppies! And in the
professional world, the administrative assistant makes the office go-around, making day-to-day
operations run smoothly.
The administrative assistant wears so many hats and has both tangible and intangible skills. The best
AA’s are great communicators and very organized, but they must also be incredibly resourceful,
persistent, discreet, loyal, and willing to go the extra mile.
In 2018, there were millions of AA working in the US. These men and women’s daily grind consisted of
resolving problems, organizing meetings, supporting CEOs, averting crises, ordering supplies to running
errands, maintaining schedules, and overseeing projects – all while maintaining a solid level of
professionalism and, of course, a friendly smile. And especially in times of difficulty, like right now with
COVID-19, administrative assistants are even more crucial to keep things running smoothly even
Being an AA isn’t an easy job and carries a unique set of responsibilities. So, I encourage you to
appreciate your office gurus on Wednesday, April 22. Simply recognizing them for their hard work or just
saying “Thank You” will be welcomed and appreciated. And speaking for myself, fresh flowers and
prosecco go a long way too!
