Here’s How Ninjas Owned Admin Week 2018

Editor’s Note: This Admin Week 2019, we’re pulling back the curtain on how you achieve the impossible. A Ninja’s work isn’t an illusion or trickery. It’s not magic. It’s a phenomenon. See how we plan to revel in it for Admin Week 2019.

We’ll admit it. Our Admin Week to-do list was pretty ambitious:

  • Launch national search for five OfficeNinjas All-Stars. Collect thousands of nominations. Read each and every one. Somehow only select five. Introduce them to the world.
  • Identify ride-or-die team of partners to support Admin Week, the All-Stars, Admin Bash; and provide killer Flash Raffle prizes.
  • Speaking of Bash, throw a killer party for 500 Ninjas.
  • Procure spotlight. Shine it on the millions of Ninjas who are crushing it on a daily basis.

Not to brag (okay, maybe just a little), but we checked off every box.

Honestly, we couldn’t have done it without YOU. We needed our global tribe of Office Ninjas supporting us with feedback, inspiration, encouragement, and, most importantly, participation. Admin Week simply wouldn’t have happened without your involvement, so THANK YOU!

Shall we revel in our success just a bit? Here’s a quick recap of everything that happened over the course of Admin Week 2018.

OfficeNinjas All-Stars Awards

Give it up for the 2018 OfficeNinjas All-Stars

Can we get one last standing ovation (go ahead and climb up onto your chair) for this year’s stellar lineup of OfficeNinjas All-Stars?!

We’re so honored to recognize these next-level admins. And, beyond that, we’re brimming with pride for our entire community. Bravo to every single one of you who threw your name in the ring, and big ups to your colleagues for their heartfelt support and nominations. An Office Ninja’s work is vital to the workplace, and it should be recognized and celebrated as such!

6th Annual Admin Bash

Six years ago, our global community of Office Ninjas stepped up and reclaimed Administrative Professionals Day. First, we took over the whole week, filling it with virtual celebrations, giveaways, and tons of recognition. Then we planned a party that broke the mold for professional networking events.

Our only rule? That Admin Bash would grow bigger and better every year—just like the OfficeNinjas community. Admin Bash 2018 was no exception.
