Happy Administrative Professionals Day!
Administrative professionals are the embodiment of getting involved. They are the doers in the office - they're the ones who make actual phone calls and get actual contracts signed. There are several parts to any working machine. In an office, you have:
These are the guys with the big ideas and the fanciful new initiatives, they push the envelope and are necessary for a company's growth.
These are the ones who make practical sense out of their dreamers' dreams. They crunch the numbers, build the timelines, prepare the quarterly reports, make the projections.
The Decision Makers
They're not always the loudest voices in the room, but they are the voices at the end of the day. The ones that give the green light - or the red - depending on their mood, or on how well the dreamers and thinkers have sold their dreams and thoughts.
These are the administrative professionals. They're the ones who research the contractors, make the phone calls, make sure contracts are signed, make sure the dreams are built.
Today, we say thank you for building dreams. Thank you for getting involved, for taking action, for making things happen... And for organizing the signing of birthday cards, the decorating of offices, the cleaning crew, the toner and printer ink, the fixing of the air conditioning unit, and everything. Everything. Everything.
