Administrative & Clerical Staffing

As the reliance on technology continues to expand in offices, the role of the office professional has greatly evolved.

Administrative Staff Assume More Responsibilities

Office automation and organizational restructuring have led Administrative and Clerical staff to increasingly assume responsibilities once reserved for managerial and professional staff. In spite of these changes, however, the core responsibilities for these positions have remained much the same: performing and coordinating an office’s administrative activities and storing, retrieving, and integrating information for dissemination to staff and clients.

Administrative Tasks – From Complex to Simple, to Routine

Administrative and Clerical staff perform tasks based on their experience level.  Therefore, tasks assigned my range from the more complex to simple and routine. Typical duties include composing correspondence/reports for manager’s signature, spreadsheet preparation from full creation to only data entry, project coordination, telephone screening, Internet research, calendaring, travel arrangements to such routine responsibilities as mail sorting, filing, faxing, collating and scanning.
