Why Admins Deserve Appreciation
In every company, there are hard-working administrative professionals who are often the backbone of the organization. These professionals perform tasks that range from keeping the office running smoothly to managing critical business processes. Admins provide essential support, and without these individuals, the company would be less efficient, less productive, and less successful.
Despite their importance, administrative professionals are often overlooked and underappreciated. Therefore, it is crucial to recognize and celebrate the hard-working admins in your company.
Recognizing administrative professionals who go above and beyond their duties is important because it boosts their morale and motivation. When admins feel valued, they are more likely to be engaged and satisfied in their work. Research performed by Oxford University’s School of Business has found a conclusive link between happiness and productivity. It has been shown the employees are more motivated an engaged in their work leading to 13% higher productivity. Additionally, recognition can help retain top talent and reduce turnover, which is especially important in a tight job market. When employees are appreciated, they are more likely to stay at their job, leading to decreased turnover and associated costs of hiring and training new employees.
Workplace Culture Spreads
A workplace’s culture spreads throughout an organization and creates a ripple effect. When employees have positive interactions with their colleagues who embody the company’s culture, they are more likely to adopt those behaviors themselves.
Offering professional development opportunities and providing perks and benefits such as flexible working hours and paid time off can show that the organization values and cares about their employees’ well-being. When employees are satisfied in their work and personal lives, they are more likely to provide better customer service, which can lead to increased customer loyalty and satisfaction.
Another way to recognize hard-working admins is to celebrate Administrative Professionals Day, which falls on the Wednesday of the last full week of April. This day is a perfect opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the hard work and dedication of administrative professionals.
This year, Lee Machinery Movers took a moment to recognize and celebrate the valuable contributions of administrative professionals who work tirelessly behind the scenes in our Heavy Rigging, Crane, IT, Marketing, Human Resources, and OEM departments. At the company-wide luncheon, each administrative professional received a cooler as a token of Lee Machinery Movers’ appreciation for their vital roles that keep Lee Machinery Movers running efficiently and effectively.
Samantha Farhat, our Human Resources assistant said “I am grateful to be a part of such an amazing company. It’s an absolute pleasure to work alongside such talented and dedicated individuals who have contributed immensely to the success of the company. I truly appreciate the celebration and gift; it means a lot to be recognized for my efforts.”
Supporting and celebrating hard-working admins in a company is essential for a successful organization. By showing appreciation, offering professional development opportunities, and acknowledging their contributions, organizations can foster a positive and productive work environment. It’s essential to remember that admins play a vital role in keeping the company running smoothly and deserve to be recognized and celebrated for their hard work.
