All Ninjas Shine… But All-Stars SPARKLE!

Meet the 2017 OfficeNinjas All-Stars

Now in its third year, OfficeNinjas All-Stars is a global, online search for the best and brightest Office Ninjas. All admins kick ass on a daily basis, but All-Stars set the bar higher with their creative problem solving, passion for efficiency, and can-do attitudes.

This year, we received thousands of nominations from all over the world! Some were really funny, most were heartfelt, and all confirmed what we’ve known all along: Office Ninjas are universally amazing.

THE 2017 OFFICENINJAS ALL-STARS

Join us in congratulating Jaime, Erica, Emily, Anita, and Sarah!

Jaime Caban

Workplace Manager @ StreamSets // San Francisco, CA

Jaime’s so beloved by his colleagues, that he’s actually been a factor in their career decisions. “I worked at a different, larger company with Jaime two years back, and finding out he joined the startup I’m at now was serious motivation to get me to sign my offer letter. He’s that critical to the office,” one co-worker said.

MEET JAIME CABAN

Erica Kelley

Executive Assistant to the CEO and Administrative Support Manager @ CustomInk // Fairfax, VA

Erica has been living the Ninja life for 18 years. Her CEO shared, “Not only has she kept me organized all these years (which is no easy task) and stepped up to lead the Admin Support Team (by whom she’s loved and respected), she’s also become a confidant and trusted thought partner on people, internal communication, morale, and more.”

MEET ERICA KELLEY

Emily Vogel

Assistant to the Chair @ Milwaukee School of Engineering // Milwaukee, WI

After “working” for her dad on Saturdays as a kid, Emily took those early Ninja talents and turned them into an incredible decade-long career. One nominator explained that instead of saying, “There’s an app for that,” their colleagues joke that “there’s an Emily for that.” Find out how Emily became an integral part of her team.

MEET EMILY VOGEL

Anita Conrad

Executive Assistant @ Savers, Inc. // Bellevue, WA

Anita had a whopping 111 (yes, you read that correctly) All-Star Ninja nominations! Her former and current colleagues couldn’t stop gushing about her empathy, hard work, and ability to read any room. One nominator shared, “Anita’s name describes her the best—Accomplished, Nice, Intelligent, Trustworthy, and, AMAZING!” We wanted to know: What’s her secret?

MEET ANITA CONRAD

Sarah Schraer

Office Manager @ Viget // Washington, DC

In addition to marveling at her ability to manage three different company offices, Sarah’s colleagues couldn’t help but brag about her attention to detail. From growing fresh herbs for co-workers to add to lunches to planning company retreats that people consider the best trips they’ve ever been on, Sarah does it all.

MEET SARAH SCHRAER

We’re so lucky to be able to join forces with some of the best admin-centric organizations and influencers out there. Each member of our Admin Week tribe—including the Admin Awards, IAAP, and Culture Summit—is dedicated to supporting the invaluable work admins do in offices across the world. Check out our tribe and learn about the important work they’re doing every day.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD

We need your help to make sure every Ninja, employer, company, vendor, and media outlet knows about #AdminWeek. Admins are often under-recognized for their administrative badassery—some companies don’t even know Admin Day exists!

Let’s build awareness, increase visibility, and get the recognition the profession deserves! To make the process as easy as possible, we put together an extensive guide that includes 7 ways you can help spread the word, from pre-written email templates to custom social media graphics. You can also reach out to [email protected] if you have other ideas.
