All Ninjas Shine… But All-Stars SPARKLE!

Winners featured on April 24–28, 2017

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. Do co-workers marvel at your ability to pick up new skills? Do you hear a collective sigh of relief whenever you enter the office? How frequently do people ask, “What would we do without you?”

If your answers are “Yes,” “Yes,” and “Daily,” you’re All-Star material.

HOW IT WORKS

What is the All-Star Awards

Each day of Admin Week, we’ll feature a different extraordinary Ninja. In addition to showering them with praise, we’ll gift each winner an incredible prize package—along with major bragging rights and company recognition.

Who’s Eligible

Remarkable Office Ninjas from anywhere in the WORLD are eligible. This includes (but is not limited to) office managers, executive assistants, receptionists, people operations managers, and culture coordinators.

How to Enter

It’s free! Get your boss and co-workers to nominate you! Then, pay it forward and nominate a fellow Ninja. You can even nominate yourself. If you need a little backup, we’re happy to send an encouraging note on your behalf.

TIPS FOR STANDOUT NOMINATIONS

Quality > Quantity

One thoughtful, personalized recommendation is way more impressive than a dozen generic ones. We see a lot of “This Ninja is awesome,” but we want to know why they’re awesome.

All in the Details

Give us interesting anecdotes and solid examples of administrative badassery. We want to hear about that office-wide system they implemented and how much money it saved the company. We want to know about the big move they organized, or that time they saved the day against all odds.

Ninjas—Ask People to Nominate You!

Chances are, your boss and colleagues will be thrilled to sing your praises. If you need a little backup, we’re happy to send them a note on your behalf. Check out the form below! Here are a few examples of stellar nominations.

THE ALL-STAR PRIZE PACKAGE

Editorial Profile on OfficeNinjas

The personal profile will cover everything from workplace experiences to daily habits and secrets of Ninja mastery. Our goal is to give All-Stars the recognition they deserve—while using their stories and advice to inspire fellow Ninjas.

Professional Photoshoot

Nothing takes an online resume, portfolio, or LinkedIn profile to the next level quite like an amazing photo—so every career admin needs a professional headshot. We partner with great photographers who are local to each winner to snap a spread of stunning on-the-job shots. Just add your smile.

Prizes From Our Partners

All-Star prizes are still in the works, but with past partners like Delta Air Lines, Moshi, Uber, and NatureBox, how can we go wrong? Our winners are guaranteed to snag some swoon-worthy goodies.

Bragging Rights

The All-Star title is an accolade past winners have literally been able to cash in on through new professional opportunities. Plus, the entire company gets to piggyback on its Ninja’s reputation.

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 8 ways you can help spread the word, from pre-written email templates to custom social media graphics. And you’ll get OfficeNinjas goodies for helping, too! You can also reach out to [email protected] if you have other ideas.

 

STAY UP-TO-DATE

Don’t miss a single moment of all things #AdminWeek!

WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK

Provide us with your colleagues’ email addresses, and we’ll send them a note about the All-Star Awards, including a suggestion to nominate their resident Ninja. (Don’t worry—we won’t mention your name in the email ask.) Awkward conversation averted.
