#AdminWeek was a Huge Success!
See our top moments.
Editor’s Note: For Admin Week 2019, we pulled 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 highlights from our week-long celebration!
Admin Week simply wouldn’t have happened without your involvement! We needed YOU and our global tribe of Office Ninjas supporting us with feedback, inspiration, encouragement, and, most importantly, participation! It was a fast-paced week, and you kept us going. THANK YOU!
Take a look below to see how we recognized and celebrated workplace operations, administrative, and people ops professionals.
Daily Giveaways: Flash Raffles
We don’t call ‘em Flash Raffles for nothing!
Thanks to our generous Admin Week partners, we gave away 15 incredible prizes faster than you can say “administrative badassery”… and we loved every second of it!
And here’s a not-so-secret secret about our sponsors: each one of these companies is deeply committed to the Office Ninja community. They sponsor Admin Week activities because they want to better understand the administrative role and offer services that make our lives easier and our offices more efficient. So the next time you’re on the hunt for a go-to vendor, show them some love!

Celebrate IRL: OfficeNinjas Admin Bash
You’ve Found Your Tribe! Now, It’s Time to Celebrate Together.
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.
