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.

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."

A Healthy Workplace

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."
