Our Commitment to You and the OfficeNinjas Community
You are at the top of our minds.
The COVID-19 outbreak is seriously impacting our global community and we know this is a challenging time for so many of us. Our hearts are with those who’ve fallen ill or have loved ones who are suffering.
In these uncertain times, we stand committed to facing this crisis together as a community, in kindness and support of one another.
Eight years ago, we founded OfficeNinjas to provide administrative professionals and workplace operators with opportunities for deep learning, collaboration, and global community. And we will continue delivering on that promise.
Our team has prepared a Plan of Action to address existing and foreseeable obstacles. We would like to share with you the measures we’re taking (more details below).
Thank you for trusting OfficeNinjas. As an organization with an innate “figure it out” attitude, our team is swiftly working through these unique circumstances and we look forward to providing our community with experiences we can all be proud of.
