Editor’s Note: Admin Week 2020 festivites are approaching! Register today for OfficeNinjas Con and Admin Bash 2020.
As an Office Ninja, your work often goes undetected, quietly happening in the shadows of cubicles and front desks. Though your impact is vast and irrefutable, you operate covertly. Sometimes there’s thanks and appreciation, but there’s rarely any fanfare.
The thing is, you DESERVE a little fanfare! You’re a STAR, and we think you should be celebrated and recognized on a global level. Hence:
April 25-29, 2016
Last year, as part of Admin Week, we launched a global online search for the best and brightest Office Ninjas. While we know all Office Ninjas kick ass on a daily basis, All-Stars set the bar with their creative problem solving, passion for efficiency, and can-do attitudes. Check out 2015’s #NinjaAllStars line-up here.
We received nominations from managers, co-workers, friends, and Ninjas themselves from over 80 different cities! It was a thrill to send out hundreds of “You’ve been nominated!” emails and an honor to select our five OfficeNinjas All-Stars.
So, OF COURSE we’re doing it again. LEARN MORE HERE!
How it Works
WHAT IS IT: Admin Week is a week-long celebration of Office Ninjas. Each day we’ll feature a different extraordinary Ninja—our All-Stars. In addition to showering them with praise, we’ll gift them with a professional photo shoot, a featured article on OfficeNinjas.com, and a pretty incredible prize package from one of our amazing sponsors.
WHO’S ELIGIBLE: Remarkable Office Ninjas from anywhere in the WORLD are eligible. Seriously, this is a global search for the best of the best. This includes (but is not limited to) office managers, executive assistants, receptionists, people operations managers, administrative assistants, personal assistants, operations managers, facility managers, vibe managers, and virtual assistants.
HOW TO ENTER: Get your boss and coworkers to nominate you (you can even provide us their emails here and we’ll send them over the nomination form). Pay it forward and nominate a fellow Office Ninja. You can even nominate yourself. It is free to enter and there is no limit to the number of nominations. Nominees will receive an email notifying them that they’ve been nominated. All nominations must be submitted by March 18, 2016 to be considered. Winners will be notified by March 25.
TIPS ON ENTERING: Our panel of expert judges are looking for inspiring anecdotes that help demonstrate the Office Ninja’s unique qualities. Focus on a few accomplishments with concrete details rather than brief descriptions of many accomplishments. The nomination should clearly show the value the Ninja brings to the workplace. Rally around the Ninja by encouraging others to submit nominations.
OfficeNinjas All-Stars is just one part of our week-long celebration of everything admin. We’re busy planning the 4th Annual Admin Bash, and, thanks to generous sponsors, we’re bringing back our daily Flash Raffles. So keep your eyes peeled, and get those nominations in!
