Workplace health plays a big role in employee productivity
Lethbridge, AB - October 1, 2010 - October is Healthy Workplace Month and it raises awareness that a healthy workplace leads to more productive and happy employees. Office administrators, through their organizational skills and good customer service, can contribute to a healthy office and workplace health.
"Administrators help an office run smoothly because they are organized, good with people, and great multi-taskers," says Penni Kiss, director of the Reeves College Lethbridge Campus. "A well-run office leads to an overall sense of satisfaction and better workplace health amongst employees."
While their duties include photocopying, answering phones, and data entry, office administrators are also tasked with maintaining a healthy workplace by keeping a positive attitude and addressing concerns from customers and co-workers.
Kiss says the key to becoming a successful office administrator is working well with others and demonstrating strong leadership skills: "Other keys to success include fantastic management skills, a good memory, anticipatory skills, and often a creative approach to problem solving."
The theme for this year's Healthy Workplace Month is Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Healthy Work... A Positive Workplace Works!
