Remote & hybrid models are fundamental

And while some are working in-office, most administrative jobseekers desire remote or hybrid models, knowing they have the tools to do their jobs virtually.

This level of flexibility is especially crucial since 94% of administrative professionals are women, who still take on more familial responsibilities than men.

Skills training attracts admin workers

Administrative support workers’ jobs require soft skills such as detail-orientation, organization, proactive communication, and problem-solving. Candidates for administrative positions also appreciate the opportunity to improve their technical skills.

As new tools and technologies are being introduced, it’s imperative for employers to provide the training needed for administrators to stay up to speed.

Today, 95% of administrative assistants, executive assistants, and legal secretaries are women. That’s why it’s vital for employers to cast a wider net to fulfill administrative roles and open the doors to candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, and genders.

Companies that are serious about achieving DE&I goals will thoroughly research benefits that attract a diverse candidate pool and ensure they have the proper organizational initiatives in place to meet their needs.
