Your job as an administrative professional demands that you juggle multiple tasks, from the routine to the challenging. Taking the initiative to learn some advanced project management skills — like those highlighted in this issue of Winning@Work — can help you shine.
Your fellow office admins told us how they stepped up to supervise office moves, get a new corporate logo onto every document, and even create a workable structure for a disorganized company. Find out what lessons they learned along the way.
Being able to accurately estimate how long a task will take is key to creating a plan for any big project. Test yourself: Take today’s to-do list, and jot down how long you think it will take to get each thing done. As you go along, track and note the actual time it took — how good were your estimates?
Hopefully, the jobs you’re asked to take on outside of your usual duties are opportunities to grow and learn more about the business. But some admins are given tasks way outside their job description. Find out what nutty assignments have been handed to some of your peers.
You know that the bigger the task, the more you need coworkers that you can rely on to help. And you already count on Staples Business Advantage for supplies and tools to get the job done. Build on that partnership by taking advantage of Staples Membership Programs – we’re eager to be part of your team.
