Just a reminder for those of you with Administrative Assistants. The national day is quickly approaching on April 2010 in the USA. Please remember those exceptional people, who rarely complain, are usually at work before everyone else in the department as well as after everyone else and the busiest people in the department managing the 300 interruptions a day to ensure the rest of us are able to meet and accomplish the goals necessary to ensure the department receives high marks when evaluated.
Admins everywhere deserve a trophy annually for taking care of the multitude of daily tasks rarely asked of them or included in their job description but routinely expected. They all seem to purchase crystal balls and magic wands from a company authorized but unknown supplier that no one else in the company can seem to source from unless your title includes administrative. These are definetely the super heroes of the office that deserve a special day as well as your gratitude and a thank you, every single day, for doing whatever is needed and whatever is required.
Thanks again Admin's everywhere for taking number and routing my calls where they need to go, and hunting down those who try to elude me or avoid my call -- thank you, thank you, thank you!
