The Value Proposition
Since the pandemic, the world of business has become almost obsessed with proving the return on investment of each employee. Every dollar counts, and so far for the first time, Administrative Professionals are being measured too.
So, where does a business start when they need to prove the value of an assistant? What kind of questions are they asking? And how do you become one of their most valuable assets?
In this presentation Lucy will explore why the multidimensional assistant is the future of the role and how you can both measure and prove your value to your business.
Looking at three distinct areas of the multidimensional, she will explain:
- Why you need to be multidimensional and what that looks like
- How to manage multidimensional people
- What the multidimensional role looks like in terms of work and how to juggle the different strands
