Let’s talk about administrative professionals: an administrative professional is defined by the International Association of Administrative Professions as “an individual who is responsible for administrative tasks and coordination of information in support of an office-related environment.”
Today, the role of an administrative professional, varies on the organization in which they work. These skilled individuals complete an array of tasks, including:
- Account collectors
- Materials coordination
- Client liaison
- Design of text and graphic
- Records maintenance
- Data collection
- Inventory control
In the Construction World
In the construction world, administrative professionals are often the backbones of a company, the foundation on which everything lies.
You need a Notice of Project? It’s likely that someone in the office filed it. There was an addendum to the project? You probably heard it from an administrative employee.
These individuals are usually one of your company’s first lines of contact with customers. Their welcoming smiles and friendly demeanour can go a long way in terms of company image.
