What do a talented baker, a competitive cyclist, and a life-long community volunteer have in common? They’re all intrepid administrative professionals and OfficeNinjas All-Star Award winners.
Will you or an outstanding admin you know be next? 2020 nominations are now open!
Each year, we set out to find five of the best and brightest office managers, operations leaders, executive assistants, and workplace operators (a.k.a “Office Ninjas”) from across the United States and Canada.
And for 2020, we’ve added a new category: the OfficeNinjas All-Star TEAM Award!
All-Stars in the New Era
For decades, Office Ninjas have led their organizations from behind the scenes. With or without the necessary resources and support, they’ve charged into the future of work.
And All-Stars? Whether managing two busy offices three time zones apart (Stephanie Powley, 2016 All-Star); co-founding an annual EA summit (Kellie Edwards, 2018); being the inspiration for the company’s employee recognition program (Jamie Caban, 2017); or busting out an impromptu office dance party when the team needs a pick-me-up (Verlance Friar, 2018) — All-Stars are constantly redefining their roles to bring success to the entire organization.
And in the Era of the Office Ninja, organizations recognize standout Ninjas for the strategic business partners they are — and clear the path for them to succeed.
Nominate yourself or another Ninja who raises the bar and defies the norm.
Do you know an All-Star Team?
In addition to awarding five stellar Ninjas with show-stopping prize packages (more on that below) — this year, for the first time, we’re also inducting one Ninja TEAM into the OfficeNinjas All-Star Hall of Fame.
A team consists of two or more Office Ninjas (there’s no upper limit) who regularly collaborate at work. Like individual All-Stars, the All-Star Team stands out in an industry filled with overachievers. Its members not only make their workplaces more efficient and productive, but they also thrive in evolving the admin profession.
Nominate a Ninja team that is changing the game for workplace operators everywhere.
